Why I Write

I’m a newbie writer. I’m celebrating four years of blogging today. I write because I just love to write. I write because people seem to like what I write and it creates a bond with my readers. I feel so interconnected with readers of my blog that I am happy I started blogging. I used to feel all alone or like I was all by myself before I shared my writings with people and to my surprise people love my writing. I’m kind of into over sharing too. I like to be able to share my story with as many people as I can. If people are interested I feel overcome with happiness. I had 100 copies of my poetry chapbook and now I have like 70 or 80 copies left to sell. I’m anxious to sell all of the copies but I’m running out of people to ask and waiting to see if the ten people I asked recently happen to respond. Writing is the only thing I get pleasure from in my life. Writing is something I can do alone and connect to people. I just love writing!
