June 1: The Writing Resumes

Sometimes I write because I think its what I'm supposed to do.
Sometimes I write because I can't sleep.
Sometimes I write because I think it will make someone fall in love with me.
Sometimes I write because I want to try to disturb someone.
Sometimes I write because I didn't like how something went down in reality so I rewrite it the way I wish it had gone.
Sometimes I write because I witness something so amazing that I want to preserve it as best I can.

I mostly write creative non-fiction. Everything I write has some tie to an experience I've had, or want to have. I love to read literary fiction and natural history- and I find my writing reflects some of that.

My intention is to give you words everyday for 30 days. Sometimes it will be on topic, some won't. But I hope to make it a little interesting.
I think I need to start working on a short story for the Chronicle's contest in December- so perhaps I'll do some exploring, too.

Looing forward to reading what you all produce!

wow. I love the reasons why you write. I think I have just answered a few of my own questions about my writing. I look forward to reading more.
