If this is something that interests you, feel free to join in! I'm not going to make this an official blogfest or anything, but it would be fun if this gets passed around, if only for small writing exercises.
1 - Introduction
Who are you? Why do you write?
Call me K. I write because I like to.
Because when I was in the fourth grade and spent my afternoons rollerblading across the neighborhood, I would dream of adventures. Sometimes I was the one adventuring, sometimes it was someone else. Often times the characters weren’t created by me, and that’s why I didn’t write them down at first. The idea of fan fiction didn’t jive with what I already knew about copyright infringement.
I write because whenever I walk into a library and never find a book interesting enough for me to check out, I go home to write the book I would read.
Because whenever I set foot in a new city, I would want to capture every moment of it just to prove that I was there and I wasn’t experiencing a very elaborate and detailed lucid dream.
My subconscious tells me stories in my dreams, and sometimes I remember them long enough to write them down. They often involve people in my life I want to get to know, never the ones already close to me. Their adventures are so much cooler than anything I think up on my own.
But mostly, I write because I like it.
Really, I don’t care if I make a living from writing or not. I will continue to write, and I will share my stories with the smallest of audiences.
This is me, and this is what I write.
