Ten Reasons Why I Write:
1 1) I can’t help myself; I have been writing since I learned to read.
2 2) My characters can’t type for themselves.
3 3) Bookstores and libraries have the most interesting bathroom graffiti in the world.
4 4) I love reading.
5 5) It feeds my curiosity.
6 6) I have been invited places I would never have been if I had not been a writer, seen things would not have seen and heard things I would not have heard.
7 7) I can fold, spindle and mutilate anyone I want to in my writing without facing criminal prosecution.
8 8) The writing community is full of great people.
9 9) It impresses furnace repair people, door-to-door salespeople and house keeping workers and medical interns. (And I’ve sold books to them.)
1 10) As I get older I get better at writing, unlike most activities.
1 11) As an addiction, it’s fairly cheap to feed.
1 12) There are no hard and fast rules, if I want to include twelve items in a ten-item list, I can.
So, what’s your excuse?
