Why I write: To please another while pleasing myself.

Today I read an article posted by my friend Jeanette Cooper at Authors Den titled "Why Do I Write?" 
As a writer (novelist/poet), I would like to share with you the substance of the words I posted to Jeanette
in my review of her article:

In The Rose Garden of Richard Lee Orey
                                                                                      The Perfect Lover! 
Since early childhood, I have enjoyed what most of us term "performing arts," i.e. singing, dancing, figure skating, etc.  But it wasn't until I read Jeanette's article that I realized that writing is a performing art.  We begin with absolutely nothing but a blank page, and soon we have created a written montage of life, itself, filling us and others with laughter and fear and delight and horror and excitement and tears that won't stop flowing.  At times in our creative performances, we're much like a magician pulling a nonexistent rabbit from an empty hat while viewers stare in rapt amazement.
When I write, I create a unique world that touches and stirs my reader's emotions; and when I write well, my reader may forget the words I chose but never forgets the journey, itself.
And how do I know when I have written well?  For me, it's when I can't stop rereading my own creation.  My words are a sumptuous meal that I can't stop eating.
In the final analysis, writing is an ego-centric activity.  And if I please you along the way, then what a wonderful day it is.  How much more pleasure is there in life than to please another while you please yourself?  It's like being the perfect lover!
I feel so much better now in having learned something new about myself.  After rattling around this life for 79 plus years, it's exciting once more to savor a virginal experience.
Now, why don't you do something creative to please another while you please yourself?  You, too, can be The Perfect Lover!

Your perception here on writing is one I'd never given much thought to - 'pleasing another while you please yourself'. It proves there are infinite reasons why we write. I think that I write more from a need to get all this "stuff" inside my head OUT! It gets a bit cluttered in there.

so true...

Well penned!

So well said, Richard. Your article, indeed, expresses so well why we write. I could only nod as I read.

It feels so good to be back at AuthorsDen after a long (unintended) absence. I can't wait to begin to write again. I've missed it so!

Reviewed by Jerry Engler
Richard, I have missed you so much, and it's very good to have you back with this very well-put commentary. Through my son's music and my daughter's art,I have gained an appreciation that all the arts, including writing, are there for the edification both of others and the artist too, just as you have said. The analogy to a perfect lover couldn't be more appropriate. For me personally, you have touched me on a dy when I am feeling a sadness...thanks. I'll be in touch soon about my next book...Jerry

My dear friend, Richard, it is so good to see you on AD again. Equally, I am glad that my article inspired you. We all get in those writer's slumps occasionally, but truly you have a wonderful pen and I so hope you will hear its voice and keep writing your books, your articles and your poems.

This particular article is beautiful. It really describes a person as they peck out those words on their keyboard--creating that world you speak of--and yes, it is a journey. I have been around the world with my writing and experienced places and things I will never see in real life.

Your article, "The Perfect Lover!" is a wonderful sample of what your pen is waiting to write. I can't wait to read that next book. (I love the music.)

My very best to you,

Reviewed by Deborah Munson (Reader)
No wonder I love to write. All that I am and wish to become, all that I ache wish to share, all the passion that permeates from me to an empty room with no one to receive, MUST be appeased somehow, and my pen is the power in my hand to make love to the world around me. Well Done! Deborah
