Because you’d rather live in your head than someone else’s stories.

Because when you don’t write, the world becomes grey and cold.

Because even when the writing’s hard and the words won’t come, there’s nothing else you’d rather be doing.

Because you’re willing to go through pages and pages of crossed out words just to find that single, perfect one.

Because the hours of painful writing are always worth it when you hit that soft, easy flow of right-brain story-telling.
