What Are We Writing For ?

I know a lot of writers. All different sorts of types of writing. I can’t say I’ve read all their stuff because I haven’t but I respect them. All of their hard work and their dedication to what they need to express in their writing is very impressive. Devotion to self-expression is impressive.

And I wonder, what are they writing for?

They know why they are writing and what fuels them. Maybe it’s catharsis. Or to figure something out. To add their unique phrasing and ideas to the world and be authentic within it. Or to hear themselves talk.What Are We Writing For ? on Shalavee.com

Maybe they’re proving to their father that they truly can follow through, they do have talent. Or they don’t feel real to themselves unless they’re writing, that maybe they’re invisible until they see their typing on a page.

Each of us has a story to tell and a reason to tell it. I don’t think it’s important to know anyone else’s Why but my own. I write to find out what I have to say and how I feel about things, my world, and you. And I am addicted to the writing process and the self-discovery.What Are We Writing For ? on Shalavee.com

And I’m writing on behalf those who feel they don’t have a voice. For those who feel invisible and unheard. I write for the girl I used to be and to help you become who you need to be.

I write to exist and I exist to write.

    I write for clarity sometimes; at other times, for joy. Often, I am driven by curiosity.

      We don’t even ask ourselves why but I thought other people who don’t write might be curious. Thanks for your reading devotion Tamara! It is a privilege I do not take for granted.

    I write because there’s just so much in my head. So many ideas that need an outlet. Every word that goes onto the page is a meditation.

    • Shalagh says:

      You know I just saw this Kim. And I’d agree wholeheartedly. There is a meditative quality of being in tune and expressing ourselves. I keep meaning to actually start meditating in real life but I have yet to create the habit. But the writing habit will never go away for me.
      Thank you for reading. It is flattering.
      Love,
      Shalagh
