Write Because It’s Inside You

Quote of the day:

The thing is that nobody writes unless they have to. So if you have to write because it’s inside you, then you will.”–Judy Blume

This perfectly sums up why I write. I just do. I can’t imagine not writing. I don’t sit down with my laptop because I think a particular story needs to get told or because I want to get a particular message out. If those things happen as well, great. But mostly it’s just how my brain works.
