I Write Because…


I write because…

I write because I like a creative challenge. I like putting words together in a way that might inspire thought or emotion. I appreciate the power of words. I like to communicate.

I have had my blog for one year and took the first writing 101 class right away. It was great to have writing prompts and to get writing tips and feedback from other bloggers.
The friendly interaction between bloggers was a bonus!

I have found that I have fun writing haikus and poems and six word stories. I like taking pictures and adding written commentary. I like writing about the simple things in life that bring me joy or move me in some way. I have tried my hand at short fiction. I have yet to find the time or patience for longer forms.

For me, writing is a creative outlet, a way to release stress. However, I confess that responding to writing deadlines can also be stress inducing for me! I am looking forward to addressing the new Writing 101 prompts and I hope I can meet the challenge of writing every day while keeping it fun.

I know it will be fun to meet blogger classmates. I can’t wait to start reading your posts! See you in the Commons!
