That’s Why I Write..
WTFOW #5, Day 7
Three years have passed, yet some things remain the same. I remember the first time I wrote for a Write Tribe prompt, when I was part of that group, and when it was a lot of fun. At times, even now, I do not know why I write, but it’s that there’s this compulsive need to. The world just doesn’t seem right without writing a few words, a post, a story, a poem, a rant… something, every now and then.
It is joyous to see the words flow on to the paper, rushing out like that’s what they were meant to be doing. It’s relieving, and cathartic. Maybe that is a reason why I write, because there’s a burden that needs to be unloaded, and I find writing to be the outlet to do that. I write because I want to write, and I do want to, more often than not. I know I don’t have to, but I love it when I do. And the tagline of this blog feels so true. I live in the words I write.
So when the time comes, these might as well be a legacy. They would hold a piece of me to remember, to cherish, maybe even to forget. They will be records of moments and memories that continue to live through them too. And they will be tales of friendships forged through them. Yeah. So that’s why I write. Sometimes, I do know why I write. Three years have passed, and that has changed. Yep.
