I Write Because…

I write because I can. I can use my words to express how I’m feeling. I can urge someone to try something new. I can make anyone feel what I want them to feel. I can influence someone.

But why do I really write? I write because the real world disappoints me. The real world turns you into someone who isn’t in touch with your creativity. It hinders your growth and stops you from exploring who you really are and who you are meant to be. It dictates the usual: go to school, get your diploma, get a job, get married, retire. It’s always about money and money and money.

I write because I want to find something else and I want to find that spark that once was there when I held a pen and paper and wrote down my thoughts. I write because I believe that this is my happiness and the first step towards it is to just do it.


To keep it short and simple: I'm twenty-seven years old. Still plenty young, but not as young as I used to be.

  1. Beautiful. Simple and straight to it. I love what you wrote,”The real world disappoints me.”
    I completely understand this. It was the exact reason I began writing when I was fourteen. An escape, a world of freedom, a world I could call my own. I can relate to this. Xo

  2. You should get into writing fiction too, like, on the side of writing on your blog.

    I fucking hate real life sometimes – like working forever until I die. Other times, the real world is amazing – like having a family or being an adult. Writing is a wonderful outlet, but it’s also a wonderful way to make the good parts of real life more enjoyable.

    I really liked this post, and am interested to read more from you. I am so interested in fact, that I’m going to follow your blog. Don’t disappoint me. Write well. Write often. Write on. 😛

    1. Wow I love your comment. 😛 Thank you! 🙂 It’s actually my second time to join Writing 101 and I did enjoy writing fiction during my first try but never considered doing it on the side. It’s certainly something I’d give a shot.

      ps. I’m trying to go to your blog but I can’t seem to load.. 😦 This is your blog, right? http://www.shadowlabryinth.com


  3. I write because I can. Plus, the rest of the first paragraph. I realized that not every person can ‘write’, and because I can, I believe I have a might weapon to influence people to do something good.
    I also thought to myself that if foolish or silly stuff can be written and are read by peoole, then why not contribute posts that are worthy to be read. 🙂
