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!!
