Why Do I Write?

 

As I read the work of others, a thought occurs to me.

Why do I write? I know I will never be as good as what I am reading.

Yet still, I continue on, trying to make a name for myself.

 

Why do I sit blankly in front of a computer, trying to will a sentence out?

I have no real audience, just the few that read a piece or two.

Oh, and the few friends that pity me and read as I ask.

 

I stare at a screen and hope that something of consequence will come up.

It doesn’t.

 

I write page after page hoping that it is going to be great.

It isn’t.

 

I try my hand at poetry, hoping to wow with my skill at the written word.

I can’t. 

 

So, again, why do I write?

For the fun of it.

For the novel inside me that I know is just waiting to be written.

For the love of the written word.

 

It’s a love.

It’s an obsession.

It’s a need.
