Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.
We’d love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link — or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.
This Week’s Topic:
What’s your numero-uno reason for writing?
I hope you can keep a secret, because I’m in love. I’m not just talking about Mr. Atkins. There is another that shares my affections.
Most of the time, it’s the best kind of love. When I’m sad, it makes me feel better.
After a long day, it massages my poor muscles.
We find ways to spend time with each other, sometimes against all odds.
Sometimes, the relationship is more one-sided, and I’m left in the cold.
But nobody better say anything about my love, because I will not stand for it!
Because in the end, it makes me feel like this:
I write because I love it. I love words, and scenes, and stories, and characters. I love the creative process. I love finding that one perfect word. I love my protags and antags, and everyone in-between.
I love it all.
That’s why I write.
What about you?
