Why do Authors Write BooksWhat makes authors write books?
It is the most frequently asked question:
What are you doing? I' m a writer because I have an inherent need to write. I' m a writer because I can't work normally like other folks. I' m a writer because I want to study books, like the ones I write. I' m a writer because I' m mad at everybody. I' m a writer because I like to sit and write all in one room all the time.
I' m a writer because I can only participate in reality through change. I' m a writer because I' m trying to find something out. I' m a writer to know something I didn't know before I started to write it. I' m a writer because I like to express myself, and that makes me think more coherent than if I just shot my own lips off.
I' m writing because it's the only thing I' m really good at. So, I keep doing the one thing in the whole wide open universe where I am feeling very good. To create a home for oneself, one has to write on the papers, in the times, in the heads of others. So why do I write?
It' s not that I want anyone to think I'm clever or even a good author. I' m writing because I want to end my solitude. It'?s books that make men less alone. This, before and after everything else, is what books do. I' m writing because it's so much pleasure - even if I can't see.
But we don't write because we have to; we always have a decision. We' re writing because speech is the way we control the world. It' is the most profound wish of any author that we never dare to acknowledge or even mention: to write a textbook that we can bequeath.
Explore, find, discover.... I' m writing to make it peaceful with things I can't keep up with. I' m writing to make it in a dark and bright colored environment. I' m writing to find out. I' m writing to expose it. I' m writing to hit my spirits. I' m writing to start a dialog.
I' m writing to think of things differently, and if I think of things differently, maybe the whole wide globe will be changed. I' m writing to honour the beautiful. I' m writing to communicate with my mates. I' m writing as a day-to-day act of improvement. I' m writing because my calmness makes it. I' m writing against the Force and for the sake of it.
I' m writing myself from my badmares and into my thumbs. No matter what you write - literature or non-fiction, literature or essays, correspondence or diary entry - see if you can tell why you write.
