Friday Flashback – Why Do I Write?
Fandango asks us to look back at an older post of ours that may not have been seen by very many.
This is one of mine, from September 7, 2015. It was one of the Daily Posts Blogging U course prompts. I really liked doing all these, and there were several we could do. They were usually a month long exercise, fun to do, lots to learn, and the opportunity to meet other bloggers along the way.
Today is the first day of another writing course offered by the Daily Post. This one suggests daily writing prompts to follow, and hopefully give inspiration, and writing practice. Today’s prompt was called “Why Do I Write”. They mentioned setting a timer for a certain amount of time, and just free-write your thoughts.
Why do I write?
I write because I wouldn’t know how not to. I’ve been writing things ever since I can remember. I enjoy words…the way they sound, the way they look, the different ways you can put them together to be serious, funny, thought provoking, to tell a story, or just say something that’s on your mind.
There are just so many ways I like to use words. I’ve been creating stories, plays, poetry, essays, articles, fiction, fan-fiction, non-fiction, diaries, assignments, and long handwritten letters it seems forever. I’ve saved most of these, and it is fun to look back at them.
I’m not a very good speaker, even to family and friends…I stumble over what I’m trying to say. I don’t read aloud very well, either…but…I can write…and I do…because I am a writer.
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
