Why I write

July 21, 2015

When I finally committed to starting a blog, I asked myself, “what would be the best thing to write about first”? The answer was pretty simple, write about why you write.

As far back as I can remember, I have been writing. I think it was one of the ways I could stand out next to my siblings who were exceptional athletes, though they would pee-shaw that statement,  they were in the trials for the junior Olympics, so that’s pretty good! Poetry was my strong suit. If you could share just a few things with me about someone, something or an event, I could write a poem about it. It was fun, it made people feel good and it made me feel good too.

A few years ago, my nephew Craig was living with us and we were talking about goals, aspirations and dreams. Of course writing professionally was one of mine. He encouraged me to write for 15 minutes everyday, write about something I knew and see what became of it. Well, 15 minutes turned into hours and hours turned into days and before I knew it, I had written a whole book. It was the most exciting creative process I’ve ever experienced, it was exuberant! The only thing  left for me to do is edit it and either self publish it, or get someone to, I will find the time to do that someday, I promise.

Thank you for coming along with me on this journey. I will write about everything and anything. I’ll even take your suggestions, if you’d like. Mostly, I just want to write. I want to encourage, inspire, provoke, motivate and feel the exhilaration of the creative process. I’m excited and hopeful that in turn I will feel all those things as well and finally finish what I began with my book.

To all of you who have been encouraging me for years to publish, share, promote, etc., hopefully this is just the beginning!
