So, in this writing website, the question was, “Why do you write?”
Fifty words or less.
The subscriber’s whose response had the most “likes” would be declared the winner.
I made no comment.
I thought it was a stupid question.
I think a better question would be, “Why aren’t you writin?”
That question would give me pause, make me think and, perhaps, respond.
I write coz I write. Been doin’ it all my life. Like some folks play football. Some folks fix cars. Some folks help others. I write.
At least, that’s what I say I do.
But I haven’t been writin’ much lately. Don’t know why other than I have been too lazy to get down to business. And there’s a lot of writin’ business to get down to….a lot….Started a novel…a blog…workin’ on songs for another album…and there’s the opera I’ve been talkin’ bout workin’ on since 2009…
I’m not get any younger. And I’m not gettin’ any closer to gettin’ any of it finished.
But, I was goin’ to throw in my 50 words bout why I write bout why…I write till I realized…
I hadn’t checked my FaceBook Page.
