Writing 101: Why I Write

Good Morning Everyone:

Have joined WordpPress Writing 101 class. It’s designed to get me to the keyboard and productive.

Writing 101 is a four-week, write-every-day challenge designed to help you create a writing habit, publish posts that mesh with your blog’s focus, and push you as a writer.

You’ll get a new writing prompt each weekday Each one has two parts: a Prompt and a Twist. Prompts are the topic for the day; twists are exercises that stretch your writing chops. Use them however you’d like: respond to the prompt, and ignore the twist. Try the twist, but write on your own topic. Use both.

I will be using it to move me to Connor’s Reach, the novel that if I do not write to completion may cause my spontaneous combustion. Actually, writing Connor’s Reach may cause spontaneous combustion!

Today’s Assignment for Writing 101:

Why do you write? This is a question you can answer again and again, as your response might evolve over time. You may have already addressed it in a previous blog post. Some bloggers also use this question, and variations of it, to shape their bios and About pages. Why am I here? Who am I? Why do I blog?

Writing has always been synonymous with gravity for me. Writing holds me firmly to the planet.

From: Lisbeth Zweger’s Wizard of Oz

And may avoid/cause spontaneous combustion.

    1. I was thinking while making a massive amount of potato salad (it’ the last of the Summer gatherings for Labor Day weekend here in the US) that I will engage in a reward system with myself of when I have done my committed time/words to Connor’s Reach, I will reward myself by being able to come out to play on my blog. Totally worth a try.
      Thank you for your words and encouragement.
