Why do you write?
I'm writing an article for a start-up magazine my brother is involved with. He's asked me to write about writing, and more specifically (in his words):
Why do you do it? Where is the magic? Is it the science of the plot? Is it falling for a character? Is it being able to create a world? Write something that might inspire a potential writer to try their hand.
Make it less about the nuts and bolts and more about the inspiration of why you chose writing - or writing chose you - as a passion.
Well, I know why I write, but I'm interested to know what's going on with you. What is it that grabs hold of you and pulls words from your brain to the page?
