I have given the question 'why do I write?' a lot of thought lately. And honestly, I'm still not entirely sure. I think it has to do with people.
People are a complete mystery to me. They do things that are totally illogical and every single one of them is different. They don't make sense in my head. And that is why I find them so fascinating.
Writing, for me, is about discovery of people through the creation and stories of the people I create. It's about trying to understand why they do what they do - that is the most important thing for me. The why of a person.
Other than that, I enjoy the feeling of having a great idea, of seeing words appear on a blank page, of knowing that I am creating. And that is why I write.
