I’ve been thinking about this article from Story Empire about what drives us all to write. There are many similarities and a few differences when it comes to the reasons we write. Personally, I have so much going on in my head that I need to write to calm it all down. More than once I’ve discovered that the finished product is nothing like I thought it would be at the beginning. Somewhere along the way it takes on a life of its own. That is part of the allure. I’m as surprised as anyone else at what I write!
