Why I Write

This post is inspired by Corinne's Blog.

I write. That is how I breathe.. I will be usually  found with my book and pen, scribbling away..
It makes me come alive.. While writing this post I realized that I write first and that reveals to me what is going on in my head.. 
It gives me clarity as if my hand is guided by an external force... 
as it touches paper as the ink flows from my nib and connects with the paper as it forms words I didn't even know existed..

Writing to me is Poetry

It doesn't enable a Living..
but it keeps me alive

It doesn't fill my stomach..
but it fuels my yearning soul 

It doesn't seem to have a future
and yet its past surfaces, as a present 

It is something that I barely understand
& yet it spans the Universe in Me

O tell me Sir,
What then be ye?
What then be Me?

If not the seeds
of poetry?

Now we know why you write and also what writing is to you.

As Stephen King says, “Writing isn't about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it's about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well. It's about getting up, getting well, and getting over. Getting happy, okay? Getting happy.”

And in your case to add, also making readers happy. Okay? :P

Such a lovely thought it keeps me alive but doesnt perhaps provide a living. We all strive for that feeling of enjoying our existence through writing. It is what makes it all worth it :)

Beautiful !
It feels good to see that every one has the same reasons to write - more or less :)
You're so very talented and I love to read what you write. Could that be another reason, my dear Dee? ♥

This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
..HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than
that, how you presented it. Too cool!
