Why do I write?

I write because... it helps me to pay my bills, to finance my life, to purchase things that arouse my interest, to meet deadlines that threaten to strangle my freedom, to answer briefs that seem so elusive but necessary, to please some client that I haven't met, to fill eight hours of my life productively...

I write because... I need to express myself in ways that I am not allowed to in my professional capacity, I have things to say that need to be written down, I feel words have the power to change minds and hearts, I love the way alphabets dance when they come together as words, sentences, stanzas and paragraphs, I love the challenge of using words to give shape to ideas and philosophies...

I write because... I can't see myself doing anything else in life.
