RTW: Reasons for Writing

Road Trip Wednesday is a blog carnival, where YA Highway’s contributors and readers post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s take on the topic.

This week’s prompt was: Whats your numero-uno reason for writing?

Well, this is an easy question. I write because I love it. I mean really love it, the way most guys love football. If I could paint myself blue and run around in public with a foam finger to show my love for writing I would.

And I write because if I didn’t I think I’d burst from all of the stories I need to tell. I think my body would just self-combust, spilling stories all over the floor as I died.*
What’s the number one reason you write?
*What do you mean by “you’re being overly dramatic”?
