The Need To Write Is Strong

Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.

~ Benjamin Franklin

“I write because…”

I write because I yearn to discover more about me, myself, and I.

I write because I do not know what I am trying to say without seeing the words first.

I write because putting pen to paper pacifies my anger.

I write to heal my scars, to cry my emotions, and to overcome my jealousy.

I write because sometimes words can be louder than actions.

I write because I need to describe my aspirations, passions, visions, and dreams.

I write because the strength in my words hold me up when life tries to push me down.

I write because I want to share laughter with others through my words.

I write because a piece of me wants to heal a piece of you.

I write because the need to write is strong.


Blogging University enticed me to sign up for both Blogging 101 and Writing 101. I feel compelled to complete the writing prompts even though it is not mandatory. Both classes had set the first task to figure out more information about me as a blogger, what drives me to write, and why am I writing. I think I am going to enjoy completing these writing and blogging tasks. Not only is it giving me material to fill my new blog, it is also helping me grow as a writer and blogger. I have an answer for “Who Am I” and found the need to write is strong.
