Written in Blood

Written in Blood
November 3, 2012 32 Comments Writing Stephanie Ayers

I write because otherwise I’d have no explanation for all the voices in my head. I was born with a pen and paper in my hand. Without my words, I am soulless,  incomplete.

This 33 word response is inspired by Trifextra. They asked us why we write. This is my answer. Tell me, why do you write?

Looking for a NaNo update? I’m 4,290 words in, and on Chapter 5. The story is currently moving smoothly. I am taking my time developing each scene, closing my eyes and putting the image in my head to words on the page for you, and so far it is working. How’s NaNo going for you?

    I write for a lot of reasons. Writing has always been the best way for me to process what is going on in my life or the world around me. I write to record things that have happened so that I can look back on them later. I started journaling when I was about 12 years old and as I got older, I began blogging. Sometimes I write because I’m very opinionated and sometimes because there is a topic I passionately wish to share information about. I suppose, in a way, writing is my way of reaching out and connecting to the rest of the world.

      I agree with everything you said. I only had 33 words though, so I tried to make them count. 😉

    I had to smile at writing being an explanation for the voices in your head. Nice 🙂

    Absolutely. If I don’t write, people start to think I’m crazy pretty fast. Oh wait. I AM crazy. But people, you know… notice.

          Sometimes they are yes, but that’s when they are the most fun!
