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!
I totally agree with you. Often I’ll title something and write an article and realize that I need to rename the article something different because of what I ended up writing. It’s a great way to figure out my thoughts on things.
I agree. I’ve noticed that after getting all my thoughts out on paper (or computer) about something I sometimes realize that my feelings on the subject are different than even I thought. 😄
Sometimes you have to worry about leaving your characters alone by themselves without your guidance.
