This Week's YA Highway Road Trip Topic:
What's your numero-uno reason for writing
My first gut reaction to this question is: "Because I have to." This is true. I don't have much choice.
But...because I can't seem to leave it at that...(Me? With a short and to-the-point Road Trip answer?)...I dug a little further, remembering the first few pages of my first rough draft. I was hooked...no doubt...knowing I wanted/needed to do this always, but I also knew something else...
I wanted to share. My ideas, my stories, and the characters I fall in love with. I wanted others to fall in love with them too. Still do.
So...maybe wanting to share is the main reason I have to write.
What about you? What is your numero-uno reason to write?
