Today the lovelies at YA Highway are asking: What is your numero uno reason for writing? This is an easy one, friends.
I have to.
Yep, it’s as simple as that. I’ve always been a storyteller. Ever since I was wee young thing. Seriously, it wasn’t until I was in college that I realized that not everyone makes up stories in their head all day long. (And I still don’t quite understand what people think about all day if it’s not a long-running serial story). Eventually I got to the point where I had to write some of those stories down because my brain was going to burst otherwise, and so I did. And then I never stopped.
Writing, to me, is living. It’s as natural as breathing. Now that I’ve started, I can’t imagine stopping. So I don’t think I will.
What about you? What’s your numero uno reason for writing?
