I recently asked my FB friends, “What makes you write?” Here’s five answers, with more to come:
Linda Lavonne Barton - The voices screaming in my head wanting to tell their stories. LOL
Sarah Bewley - I write plays because I literally have voices in my head, and I figure I'll put them to use. (grin)
Michael Boehm - The characters. They're there in my head, doing things and having conversations. They won't leave me alone unless I write it all down.
Shirl Henke - I began writing because I had stories in my head and had to put them to paper. Once I became published, I had deadlines on my mind. Now that I'm e-pubbing my backlist before writing any more new books, I feel the very strong urge to stop and begin with the new stories once again.
John Hohn - It gives my life purpose.
I put these in alphabetical order by last name. Interesting how the same theme runs through the first four.
I'll post more replies from my friends over the next week. If you have a thought you're burning to share, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or add a comment below.
After Christmas, look for Assassin's Club: Preservation on Kindle, with wider distribution to follow.
