Why Do I Write?

Source: quotesgram.com

Most of the times when I want to write, I ask myself what I’ve got to write about. what compels me to write? Everything else has been shared and talked about. What is the new thing I will be adding?

But then I ask myself again what is it for me? How does writing makes me feel? How do I feel after writing?
The answer always is “It makes me Happy”. I always feel content when I’m about to write even when I don’t have ideas to start with. It’s just the thought of writing. I mean the process of it when I look for topics to write about, or discussions I go through that give me ideas to share. I get to learn new things and it also helps me see things differently.

And, most importantly, I write because I need to write. It is my passion. It is my way to feel free and alive.

I don’t have to find a unique topic that no one has written about. I will never find one anyway. But it’s my unique voice. It’s my personal opinions and thoughts that I’ve got to share.

I might not be able to inspire others. But inspiring myself is good enough for me, for a start. Because when I inspire myself I know I will do better and better and eventually will be heard and inspire others; even if it was one or two persons only.

And take it from Sylvia Plath:
โ€œAnd by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.โ€

So I let go all the self-doubts and my fear. Refresh my mind. And start to inspire and be inspired through writing.

So,ย whyย do you write? … Share your thoughts.

  1. Loved your perspective on this thing.
    I write to empty my mind. My mind is a terrible place in side. A lot of things keep going on. To calm my mind I write.

  2. I was introduced to writing as a passion in fourth grade. As a dyslexic with ADHD in the nineties I received very few opportunities to shine. On top of that my childhood straight up sucked, so when a teacher gave me the opportunity to escape my world and create one I would prefer to be in I became addicted to writing. When my father died, the only good in my life, my therapist taught me to channel my emotions into writing. Writing became my everything. Then when I was laid off of my job I decided to return to writing…and used it as a way to communicate things that I felt would motivate others to excel in their careers beyond the realms that I could. ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s why I write today atleast.

    1. Very inspiring!! I have started following you, and read some of your posts,, and I found really interesting fun writings ๐Ÿ™‚ … and you know what,, just reading your comment, motivated me to work harder to reach my dreams! ..
      I’m sorry to hear about your father, and then your job! and I’m really inspired by how you reacted towards the loss, and didn’t let the loss get into you, instead you followed your passion! *thumps up* ..
      Thanks a lot my dear for your comment ๐Ÿ™‚
