Tip O'Day #226 - Yet More "Why I Write"

Five more responses to “What Makes You Write?” Let’s do this again sometime.

Clair Saint - Word smithing, articulation that is really important to describe the feeling so the other can completely and totally visualize and/or feel what the writer is describing to touch and stimulate.

Marlene Samuels - I select books for a range of very specific reasons: they're in my field; they're by best-selling authors; they're classics that I didn’t quite understand when I was required to read them; or they're a huge intellectual challenge to me.

Matthew Schott - I have to tell their stories or they will be lost forever. Everyone is a main character; it’s just those who get thrown into unusual situations whose stories becomes books.

Jane Vogley - It's my passion. I enjoy creating stories that entertain people, move them, and make them think. And I write because I'm not so good at other artistic mediums, can't draw or paint to save my life...lol

Claudette Walker - A flame that burns hotter than Dante's Inferno. The unending passion to explore this world as it is during my time and leave an unforgettable trail, she lived...

  1. Being stuck at home a lot of the time, gives me time to reflect. My life has been full of ups and downs and isn't that what stories are? I use my past experiences and imagination, to come up with ideas that I would read, my children would read, and my friends would read. I know it sounds like a lot and it might sound a little over the top, but I have over 2,000 story ideas that are not published yet. I believe I was meant to write them all.
