IWSG: Why Do You Write?

Over the years, I've found THE INSECURE WRITER'S SUPPORT GROUP to be such a great community. I look forward to the monthly posts to connect us. I encourage you to visit the website and join the group!

This Month's Question: Albert Camus once said, “The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.” Flannery O’Conner said, “I write to discover what I know.” Authors across time and distance have had many reasons to write. Why do you write what you write?

My Answer: I write because I love telling stories. I love creating worlds, characters, plots, and twists. I love creating. I love exploring all of the possibilities. I've always been a curious person, and as a writer, I can ask as many questions as I want. Then I can explore, hunt, and find the answers to those questions.

How about you? Why do you write?


  1. That's a fabulous answer! I kept saying "me too!" as I was reading!! :)

  2. All about curiosity! That's a great way to sum it up.

  3. From your answer, I need to ask more questions!

  4. Hi, Margo! You nailed some of the great joys that come with writing! All the best to you.
