I have noticed that there are quite a number of writers/poets on the forum.

Life makes me write. (I never said it makes me write WELL) ;)

The darkness makes me write. The daylight is too bright and shiny.

The need for a paycheque makes me write... ;)

But, that aside, it's putting down to words EXACTLY what it is I mean. I like the challenge of invoking the perfect image for what it is I want to say. The backspace and delete keys are my great friends; they forgive my inadequacies and let me try a second time.

What makes you write?

I teach English as a foreign language. Otherwise, I see writing as a very useful means of communication

normally a need to escape or express myself without actually speaking drives me to write and think things through...

Pain or loneliness are usually the catalysts.

I'm sometimes inspired to write in sheer awe of nature or space, but it doenst have the same raw edge to it, I think.

I used to write a lot, and at great length ... in the days prior to the internet. Things changed & I now I just type very fast, with several different windows open.

Write when that bloody mind refuses to sleep.Write, when i want to review all of foolish thoughts,write, to cringe at my own words,write, when i want to hold a pen not a cigarette, write,as a way to curb my short attention span, write, to know im still in control, and write when nobody simply wants to talk to me.
