Why Do I Write?

Published: January 4, 2021

There are a host of reasons why I write, but lately, the most prominent reason is that I have a lot of conversations going on in my head and not enough people (or should I say the right people) to have them with.

I also write to help me learn. When I’m all jazzed up over learning something new, it’s the best time to write about it. Not only does writing help to cement the newly learned skill/topic, but it also tests the depth of my knowledge when helping other folks to learn said skill/topic.


I write because I observe things. Although a picture is worth a thousand words, I’m often without a camera so I’ve got to recreate the image and the associated feelings with my words.

I write because I cannot sing.

I write when it’s inappropriate for me to dance.

I write to let off steam, voice my frustration, express my sorrows, share my joy, and my questionable sense of humor.

I write because I’m a better writer than a speaker.

I write because there are too many things going on in my head and they tend to travel down, spill out through my fingertips and onto a keyboard.

I write because I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t.
