Someone recently asked me why I write. I had to think about it for a while, but I'm ready to share it with you as my first post for April. I suppose it touches on various insecurities, so here it is:
I think I write to be a character that I know I'm not in real life. It's a kind of escapism, if that makes any sense. I write to step into the shoes of someone strong, someone fantastic, and someone who's not afraid to explore things that scare me. And I write sometimes because I prefer the fiction to the reality.
Yeah, I guess there's plenty of insecurity in those words. Writers as a lot are such a mess. Wouldn't you agree?
