I love putting story to print. After reading all my life I thought it was time.
Inspiration, imagination, love of words. You have to is my answer. You have to express yourself, if you are a writer, artist, composer. It is in your soul.

5) Neil McGowan
I couldn’t imagine not writing. It’s something that is a part of my character. It allows me to examine ideas and themes from different perspectives, and lets me have fun playing around with characters and situations.
To share the uniqueness and comical side of this creature we call a cat.
7) Jaro Berce
To share my knowledge with others and to have fun discussing it with people that perceived the matter differently as I have meant.
I write because I can’t imagine doing anything else for the rest of my life. There is no greater freedom for me than when I am deep in the construction of a scene, when so much is going on that I forget the world for awhile. When I come out of it, there is almost a strange euphoria to it. I blink and say, “Wow. Did that actually happen?” So much can occur. I feel a lot while I’m writing. With some scenes, I feel a character’s anger or what they would naturally feel if they were insulted or hurt. Sometimes, with a particularly emotional scene, I know I’ve gotten to the heart of things when I’m writing with tears streaming down my face. Neurotic? Maybe. But, that is the way of a writer. We feel with our characters. They become a part of us in a way, and when the book is finished, it is hard to step away from that connection. So, why do I write? Because doing anything else just feels wrong.
