Why do I write? I don’t know. I guess I like it. Getting those thoughts on paper. Sharing ideas. Sharing thoughts. Trying to make sense of my life. Trying to write down messy ideas.
Leaving a little bit of myself on the web. In the world. Why do others write? Is it because I have something important to share? Maybe.
Maybe not. It’s just important to have them written down somewhere. Maybe to remember. Maybe to share. Maybe to be immortal. To have something that will outlast my lifetime.
Do I write because I want the attention? Is it because I have nothing better to do? Why do others write? Why do you write?
Maybe someday I’ll be famous. Maybe my thoughts are super important. What compels me to write? Should I write to entertain? Should I write deeply personal things? Should I write what others want to read?
Or what I would want to read? Maybe I’m lonely and writing shares the loneliness. Maybe it is a form of therapy. Some people need therapists. Some need art or creative outlets. I’m not sure.
Should I try to write for validation? For acceptance? Am I writing instead of taking action? What is the point of thinking, of writing if it is to avoid action? To avoid taking a risk?
Is it futile to write? To type? To update a blog? To write a journal?
I guess we all need different things. Some of us need to write. Anything. They just need to let the emotions and thoughts out. It can be self destructive and perpetuating negative thoughts and worries. Why?
There. Some food for thought and to read your comments 🙂 thanks for reading friends!
Oh wait. Could I be writing just to keep friends updated? 😛
