Why I write


Writing is not my profession but my obsession. Writing, or the desire to write, haunts me and drags me back when I flee. I’ve generally not used the term “writer” alongside my name because I’ve not thought of myself as one who has earned the label. But the term “writer” includes more than a professional crafter of books, articles, and stories. For example, this entry from Dictionary.com defines “writer” as a noun, “3. a person who commits his or her thoughts, ideas, etc., to writing.” That’s me, one who must think about life, with all its difficulties and beauty, and then attempt to process those thoughts and ideas through writing.
