I've been wondering lately why people write. Do they have a story trapped inside they just have to get out? Do they write for their own enjoyment of the story they are writing? Do they write to see their name in print when they go to the bookstore?
After some thought, I realized I write because I have found wonderful characters who want me to come and live in their world, if only for a few hours at a time. (Interestingly, this is what draws me to the books I read-- characters who can take me away to another world or place).
So, out of curiosity, why do you write?
Oh, and Graeme has a new website. It can be found here. There's a great post about the "Ordinary" in Extraordinary. Be sure to swing by and check it out-- I found it quite thought provoking!
