What I Live For (why I write)

I dream dreams and want to find out what happens next. I hear voices in my head, discover characters begging for freedom, to be let loose on the page. I believe I have many things the world needs to hear. Plots and stories well up inside me. If I don’t write these things down, I feel like I am going to explode.
I enjoy writing about the ordinary things of everyday life, how special each thing is; a germinating seed, the first flower of spring, the cry of a buzzard, the piercing song of the robin, the sun’s warmth on my skin, a friendly smile. I love to write about fantastic situations, creatures and events. I take the ordinary and make it extraordinary.
I don’t want to capture scenes or emotions. Rather, I want to set them free. I want to make images and feelings come to life, to trigger a response in my readers. Writing frees my inner self, allows me to put into words what cannot or should not be spoken. Writing helps me to resolve things within my soul. I am Me. I write. It is my life.
