Why I Write, My Writer’s Declaration
By Joanne Troppello
I write because I can even though there will always be critics of my work, but I charge ahead brazenly, trying to freely express myself, my beliefs and my dreams in what I write.
I write because it feels like I’m not breathing if I don’t write. It’s a part of who I am and the characters in my mind and their lives flow freely onto the page and I feel compelled to tell their stories.
I write because I feel that I have something important to say and even if I didn’t think that anyone would ever read my work, I would still continue to write, for me.
I write because I have lived and have experiences. I want to intertwine those pains and joys and emotional times into stories that can touch peoples’ lives and let them know that someone else out there has felt the same way.
I write because I feel that God has given me a gift; I may not be the best writer in the world, but I want to be the best writer that I can be and glorify God in everything I write.
I write because it’s therapy when I’m going through something in my life and I can tell a story of someone who is struggling but goes through the journey and comes out the other side a better person—I hope that someday that will also be me.
I write because I love to read and reading has always been a part of my life since I was a young child. I want to create my own stories that encompass the imagination I have.
I write because I want to leave a legacy and hope that my work will, in some small way, make this world a better place and help readers see that God is the answer.
I write because there are some stories that just need to be told and I figure that somebody needs to tell them.
Why do you write? Do you have your own Writer’s Declaration or writing journey you’d like to share?
