I write because…

  • it makes me happy.
  • the voices tell me to.
  • other voices tell me not to.
  • it’s what I know.
  • it’s everything unknown.
  • it’s who I am.
  • it’s everything I’m not.
  • it’s escape.
  • I want to leave something behind.
  • there are too many stories to tell.
  • there are too many secrets to share.
  • there are too many zombies at the window.
  • it keeps me company.
  • it saves me from reality.
  • it brings me closer to the real world.
  • the machine is already primed.
  • everything’s already been written.
  • it might be better if I write again.
  • it’s the best of me.
  • it’s the worst of me.
  • it’s the greatest freedom I know.
