Right On - or - Choking On My Own Advice

Write for the sake of writing. Write because the voice in your head, as crazy as it might seem, has a secret to tell you. Write to move the last thing you wrote a little further back in history. Write because at some point there will be a zombie apocalypse and you don’t want to have your brain eaten before you get most of the good ideas out of it and onto paper. Write because it makes you think of good times that have passed. Write to remind yourself of the hard times you have gotten through. Write to never forget the mistakes you’ve already made once. Or twice. Write to remember lost friends, lost loves, lost dreams, and to let them live on. Write because sometimes the world in your head is a lot more interesting than the world out side of it. Write because bringing some of the things from inside of your head out makes the world a little bit more interesting for everyone else. Write because there is no reason not to. Write to practice your penmanship. Write to regain feeling in your fingertips on cold winter evening. Write to sit underneath the ceiling fan on a hot sticky summer day. Write to find excuses to use the word Cataclysm. Write to get that girl off your mind. Write to get that girl into your life. Write so that your hobbies can include writing. Write to explain yourself to the world. Write to separate yourself from the herd. Write for the glory, fame, and prestige of being a writer. Write for all the wrong reasons.
