I write for many reasons. Here are three:
- To kill time. If I couldn’t write, I don’t know how I would spend 24 hours a day every day. But because I do write, 24 is not enough. It’s never enough.
- To kill characters. I hope you read the previous sentence the way I meant it. To kill characters who are based on people I don’t like in real life. Trust me when I say there are many.
- To kill my soul. Writing has taken me to dark places I didn’t know I needed to go. But I’m glad I did.
I’m going to assume you write. Why do you?
