Why do I write?

Because writing gives me hope. Because I'm scared if I speak I'll get it wrong. Because writing gives me freedom. The freedom to pretend, the freedom to express what I cannot say aloud, the freedom to escape for awhile. Because writing comes straight from the heart. Because language is beautiful, exciting and powerful. It's capable of cutting like a knife or helping to heal wounds. The power of writing scares me but the excitement of not knowing who maybe reading or whose heart your words touch make it worthwhile. I write because I love the pictures words can paint.
I write because I love it.
