Why I Write

Because I *like* https://www.facebook.com/freedomwithwriting on Facebook, I get notices of their online, short writing contests.  Unfortunately, I read about a recent contest, “Why I Write,” too late for entry.  Not able to share there, I’m now sharing it here:

I write to discover the magic of words that can prod, reveal, realize, fantasize, and inflame the possibilities of mind (yours and mine) for all the tomorrows.  I write for the promise of understanding, empathy, laughter, and sharing that grounds us to our souls of imagination.

That’s why *I* write.  In 50 words or less, why do you write?

    Ditto, Diana. I love your phrase “the magic of words”. Words wrap around the brain and carry me to faraway places.
