The To-Read StackToday is apparently National Writing Day, and I had no idea until I saw the top trending topic on Twitter is #WhyIWrite. Twitter does seem to be the epicenter for writers and social media.

Why I write is simple. I write because the story is inside me, demanding to be let out. I write because I can’t imagine a world in which those stories exist only inside me. I write because there’s freedom in yelling to the call. I write because I believe in the deepest parts of my soul that writing is what God created me for. I write because it’s my life’s work.

I write because it’s time, because it’s what I need to do. And, I wager, that’s why you write too.
