The answer is simple: because I want to.
When once the itch of literature comes over a man, nothing can cure it but the scratching of a pen. But if you have not a pen, I suppose you must scratch any way you can. ~ Samuel Lover, Handy Andy, 1842
I prefer scratching of a pen and not otherwise. Hence the writing.
I read somewhere that writing clears your head. But in my case it is nothing less than a fallacy. Writing has never cleared my head and I am happier that way. It’s awe-inspiring to see my thoughts manifest into words on a piece of paper.
Painting pictures with words is one of the most fascinating things I’ve experienced so far, and I am certain that pleasure will continue for the rest of my life.
In writing, I find solace.
In writing, I find happiness.
In writing, I find peace and tranquility of mind.
Most of my rambling thoughts have found their way on to the paper, because I’ve stuck to the basic principle of writing: ‘Writers Write.’ But I don’t wish to trouble anyone who visits this blog with those unbridled feelings of mine (Just in case if I get an overwhelming urge to share something sometime, I may do so. You will have to bear with me then).
I’ve always been enchanted by stories and that’s where my main interest in writing lies.
So mainly I shall be posting short stories and occasionally, an article, or an experience.
If there's a book you really want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it. ~ Toni Morrison
Someday, I will.
