I Do Not Write/I Write

I do not write to be appreciated or respected.

I do not write to be praised or complimented.

I do not write to boost my own self image, my own arrogance (though this is a deep and hard to avoid trap).

I do not write because I understand things that others do not.

I write because I am compelled to by something inside of me that demands it.

I write because there are stories that need telling.

I write because I have a love affair with words, even though I often use them incorrectly.

I write because it liberates me in a way that few other things do.

Why do you write?
