Why Writers Write…

A website called ‘Author’s Promoter’ collated information by asking for writers to email them about WHY they write…over 100 published authors responded and below is the pie-graph showing the results.

If you visit their web site you can read the hundred or so quotes from each author.

I’ve put mine here on the page….writing is a great from of relaxation and therefore great therapy. You can write down how you are feeling; its like talking to someone who listens, even if no -one is there! (Get it??)

Of course I wrote a lot more about why I write, other reasons included.. a love of putting words together and seeing how imaginatively I can create another world or situation and entertain someone with it. Or even what words I could find to paint a scene with, or explain a character…

Writing is also a great way to store memories…to keeps records on paper, (or hard drive), just like storing photos. Generations to come can share your thoughts later, decades later.

What about you? What do you think??

It was a perfect vent for expression and great therapy. Some times I wrote and tore it up and threw it out but I felt better!!


About loulouszal

Hi, I have always loved stories, from Dr Suess to Enid Blyton, to Roald Dahl, as a child and on to Jane Austen as a teen and adult. I love writing stories and poems too. I think writing and reading fantasy is a great way to travel, in your head and visit places you might never otherwise see. they can be as wonderful as you want to make them. I kept writing as a hobby all through my teen years and then as an adult, married with children ,I wrote stories for my family and read them out aloud as we traveled on long car trips in foreign countries. "The Diary of Arnmore" is one of these stories, followed closely by "Hungry Mr Croc." Two very different stories, aimed at completely different age groups, but both definately worth a read!
