There are a whole host of reasons why I write.
I write because there are things in my mind that need a way out somehow.
I write because words connect people.
I write because it helps me to understand the world.
I write because it’s meaningful and it gives me a sense of purpose.
I write to leave a memory trail.
I write to freely express myself.
I write so that my mental illness doesn’t stay locked up away from the world, shrouded in silence.
Sometimes I write because I think I should.
Sometimes I write because I need to.
Sometimes I write to take a stand on a social issue.
Sometimes I write to make some money.
Always, I write because I can.
If I have something to say in a 1-minute read, I will say it.
Because I can.
