Why do people write? What a lame question to be generating tens of thousand of Google search results.
It all begins when people have brains that are wired to do something with a blank canvas, a blank page or a blank block of concrete. We are the same: We are compelled to fill the world with stuff that was not there before.
I write to make pitiful pay. I write for the research and the education that comes with the pitiful pay.
I write to create worlds of people, places and events from nothing. I write to sneak in subersive and hilarious twists and turns to make the audience gasp, spit their coffee, or run screaming from the room.
I write to break the rules and to make the mistakes that writers make. I do not write to solve the puzzle; I write to create the puzzle first, and then I write to solve the puzzle.
I love it when someone asks how my story turns out, because it gives me a chance to say "I can't wait to find out how my story turns out!"
I also paint, do music and live with lessons learned. Join Xenonlit Press as we travel through the incredible nonsense and side dishes of life.
