Re:I write to... 7 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 34
Long: The earliest memory I have of my life is of me sitting on the floor, surrounded by books. Most of my memories are of books, in fact. And a good part of those are not really memories, but fantasies. I would curl up in a dim corner and lose myself in my books to the point that I had written myself into the story, either as my own person or as one of the existing characters. Those fantasies have only grown more intense with time, and they've been my connection to sanity and happiness and emotional release throughout my life. Whether I'm happy or sad or angry or murderous or confused or whatever, I just pick up a story and imagine it till the emotion has been leeched. And I always come back out with renewed strength and a clear head. I want others to experience this too, to get attached to a story and its characters emotionally till it's real to them. Till they're involved in it, are participating in it. I want them to feel that state of emotional catharsis, to explore unlikely emotions and to truly live.

So, in short: I write to give people worlds to live in.

(Sigh...I couldn't decide between "I write to give people catharsis" and "I write to give people worlds to live in")

Re:I write to... 7 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 2
I write for many reasons, some to escape reality and the stress it brings, others just for fun, even though most of my work isn't posted... Mostly I write for myself to create something that is purely me and while flighty it is a part of me. When writing, I can forget everything around me, and be free of the bonds that society has placed upon me, and what I must look like and how I represent myself.

Short answer: I write... for myself, and to create something that is purely me.

I write because I like seeing something I have accomplished, a materialization of my daydreams. I had more books than friends when I was a kid and writing is natural for me. It's strictly for narcisstic purposes. LOL.

How do you want this to go, it's got to be an 'i write to' format.

Do you really want to know why I write? I write because if I say/do any of the stuff I write about in the real world, I would be considered more insane than I already am and possibly be locked up. I write because it frees my true self and drink my daily dose of Sess+Kag in my own style glass.

Long Answer: I write because if I say/do any of the stuff I write about in the real world, I would be considered more insane than I already am and possibly be locked up. I write because it frees my true self and drink my daily dose of Sess+Kag in my own style glass. I write because it relaxes me enough to transformed this broke atmosphere into my own dream land.

Short Answer: I write to escape into my own insane imagination.

Free my inner demon.


Because it allows me to be myself and express how I feel. Writing is the ultimate freedom and is something that no one can tell you how to do, when to do it or whether it is right or wrong. There is no right or wrong way to write. It is simply freedom unrestrained and wild.

Re:I write to... 7 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 0
Short Version
I write to escape from my reality.

(Not Much of a) Long Version
Writing, for me, lets me escape reality. Call it 'playing God' if you will, but there, the reality can be different than the reality that I'm currently living in. There are times, though, that the reality in the stories can be influenced by what I'm living as well.

Re:I write to... 7 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 5
I write to capture and release emotion

I write to convey and bring emotions to people. If I'm writing something sad, then I want people to feel a touch of sadness. If I'm writing something silly, I want people to laugh. Emotion is a big part of who I am and how I write. If I'm not writing to bring an emotion, then I'm writing to give that emotion up so I can go on with my life.

Re:I write to... 7 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 24
Alright... I've been looking at this thread for months, so I think it's about time for me to actually answer the question. lol.

I started writing when I was in 6th grade. They were only diary/journal entries though where I wrote about my day and my emotions. It was very over dramatic and I hope I've burned those by now. I switched from a book and a pen to blog sites where I updated frequently and my writings/ramblings got more mature. Still, my journal writing days had ended, officially, about three years ago. I had fallen out of it slowly, sporadically updating when I remembered or simply being too lazy to do so.

I never thought of myself as a writer then, but I got into poetry writing when a friend of mine passed away from Cancer. I was upset and distraught and I had no outlet for my emotions. I didn't want to burden my friends with my negativity and my family aren't the kind of people who dwell on things like that. So I kept it bottled inside until one day, I sat down and wrote out a long poem. Then, one thing led to another and I was writing poetry all the time. It ranged in various topics and I just kept improving with practice. I won several poetry contests at my school and I had been published a couple of times as well. Despite that, I was wary of actually writing full length stories and novels - even with all the plots that I had. I feared that I wouldn't be able to keep up with them or I would screw it up royally. I had attempted National Novel Writing Month for so many years with no success because I would quit after a thousand or two words. I realized how different story writing was from poetry, but I wanted to succeed!

So I kept trying and failing, but eventually, under a few friend's suggestions, I signed up on an RP/video game forum and I RPed A LOT. I was on that site all day every day and it helped so much because I fed off of other people's inspirations as they fed off mine. It was such a different environment than attempting everything all by myself. I loved it and I really came to appreciate story writing. After that, my confidence was renewed and I tried again. It was still difficult though, trying to create original worlds and characters.

And at the time, I wasn't into anime or manga, so I didn't know about fanfiction. My friend was obsessed with Inuyasha though and she gave me a fanfiction site to go on to read some stories. I blanched at the idea, but after weeks of having that site bookmarked, I took a look and the first story that had caught my eye was a Sess x Kag fiction. I read it and I loved it, despite not having a really clear understanding of the characters. I just knew that the way the author had written the story - they had fit perfectly and they were really suitable for each other. Immediately, I liked that pairing - with nothing else to go on. After much convincing, my friend made me watch an episode of Inuyasha and I was immediately hooked. I saw Sesshoumaru and Kagome in the anime then I recalled the fanfiction that I read and I could only think to myself, "well, opposites attract." And that's when I began writing fanfictions and it was easier than original stories because the characters and world had already been set. It was pretty much just keeping them in character and dropping in new plots.

And I'm pretty proud to say that since then, I've written, what I think, are a lot of fanfictions, a lot of poetry, and I even won NaNoWriMo two years in a row now (original stories, finally!). The plots that I use are my own fairytales that I will never get the chance to live in reality, but that's okay, because I live it every time I write it since I imagine myself as the main character and that's good enough for me. I write for myself so I can improve and I write to escape reality and to live the lives that I'll never be able to live otherwise.

Whew! So... in short, I guess you could say, I write to live in different worlds and fairytales that don't exist in reality.

Long version: I write to let loose the random ideas that spin through my mind. To see what a what if can become. Each idea usually comes a random thought the springs into choas that I try to make into a story. Also, writing brings me a sense of joy. I'm always happier after posting a chapter. And oddly enough sometimes fanfics I left alone too long poke at me in my dreams.

Short version: I write to free the what ifs in my mind.

Re:I write to... 7 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 15
This is an interesting question!

Why do I write? Well, I write... I write... to breathe.

Coming out of a really long writer's block I think back on those days when I sat, staring at the computer screen and watching that annoying cursor just blink at me. It was horrible. I had so many thoughts to share and yet I found it near impossible to put anything down. I felt like someone who desperately wants to sing, but has no voice. Life was not bad, per se, but it was certainly very empty and I found myself disconnected from the friends I'd made when I was actively writing. I felt like I was just a burden. What good is a writer who cannot write?

It's funny, however, because I learned to cherish something that I used to take for granted. I've always woke with ideas for new writing and gone to bed thinking of more stories. I would live, eat, and breathe story telling. I didn't think it would ever go anywhere. Where would such an integral part of myself go?

I didn't believe it was possible until... I couldn't breathe anymore. Now I realize just how wonderful those times were. I've never felt more energetic than I have these past few days that I've finally been able to take in a few good breaths and say the words I have been longing to say.
