A lot has been written about why writers write. Writers write for many reasons and some, for any reason.

They write to express who they are and to say what they know. To teach and to inspire where no inspiration has yet taken root. To share the stories they see clearly in their imagination. To entertain themselves first, then those readers who find their works, some write to purge unhappiness or injustices for themselves and others.

There will be some writers who tell you their reasons come from deep in their souls, at the very core of who they are. Jane Austen had Lady Catherine say, “I must have my share in the conversation,” as most writers want their voices heard.

Writers show readers vivid characters and pictures that keep them and us ‘safe and sometimes warm’ from our only realties.

We are lucky today where stories are brought to life by writers and illustrators and visionaries in the many different ways there are to entertain us. But first, some idea is thought and it usually starts with a writer.

So it really doesn’t matter why they write, it’s just a good thing they do!

  Happy Holidays to all Storytellers and Wordsmiths everywhere!

Hello JD Holiday,

Thank you for this article. It tells a lot about the "why" in writing, but for most writers, we have to write because it is our "breathing" - we'll suffocate inwardly if we don't! Enjoyed this!

Reviewed by Stuart McCallum

So very true, an article that many of us can relate to. Much enjoyed, and your wisdom regarding fellow writers shone through.

Thank you, Stuart
