Why I write

Today, October 20th, is National Day of Writing.

For one of my English classes at Millersville, we were asked to write about why we write. Although there are many reasons why I write, here are a few of them below:

Why I Write

Writing slows my

world down,

causing it to move

in slow-motion.

It causes me to see the details, I would otherwise miss.

Writing is my



life into focus.

Thoughts once blurry, now becoming razor sharp.

Writing is an

act of faith




It is trust,

that words will make their way

from head and heart

to paper.

Happy National Day of writing. May you find space to write today, whether it be a grocery list or the beginnings of a novel. Your words are sacred and give life to others.
