Why Write?

5466

Because it’s fun. More fun than you can possibly imagine. How so?

Well, if you’re a certain type of person, you live more in your head than you do in the real world. There’s just all kinds of crazy shit happening up there. Writing is a way to dive in and give that craziness form, to really examine what’s going on in your mind and try to make sense out of it.

Short stories are great for drilling down into an idea and looking for meaning, but if you want to create entire worlds, and populate them with three dimensional, unpredictable people, novels are the way to go.

Any way you cut it, if you write fiction, you get to carry this show around in your head 24/7. The best part is, you never really know how it all turns out until you’ve written it.

I’m about to start a new one and can’t wait to dive in. Why write? To see how it ends.
