Why I Write: Words From Others

So later on the day that I posted the entry, Why I Write, I randomly came across an entire series of articles, written by various writers, on why they write.   The catalog of them can be found here: Why I Write: A Celebration of the National Day on Writing.  I especially liked Gaetan Pappalardo Writes for the Sake of Writing(especially especially the last two stanzas) and the TED talk following the article, Why I Write: To Spark Creativity, Not Kill It.  I particularly like the anecdote the speaker shares at 15:14 of the video.  There are a LOT of articles there (and I haven’t read them all yet), but I think that a personal examination of why each of us writes, and input from others on why they write, is important.  Self-knowledge leads to self-growth.  And besides, you never know what might spark inspiration.  Never stop reading, and never stop writing.

Write always,

E.S. Hilt
