It IS a Need
One of my favorite bloggers, Jack of Random Fate has an interesting post on why he blogs HERE. I liked all of it, but this caught my eye, “I write because I NEED to write. Those who write, understand, those who do not, will not understand.”
Yup. I get it. That’s the nice thing about blogging. I’m not the great American novel kinda gal. I’ll never write fiction. I’ll never do the research for non-fiction. I could do a newspaper column, perhaps, but that’s not happening. One of the many reasons I blog… “I write because I NEED to write.”
I was writing before I was blogging and when I stop blogging, I will continue to write. It isn’t uncommon for me to open a word document and just write for an hour, stream of consciousness about anything and everything… and then hit delete.
I write because I NEED to write. Jack nailed it.
