I write because it gets stories out of my head, because I don't want to not write and because I don't want my English to wear away as I learn more languages. I write because I haven't anything better to do and because I have much more boring things to do, and I write to give life to the characters in my head. I write because were I not writing, I'd be doing something either far more or far less important, and because anything of that sort would bore me. I write to procrastinate, to grow, to shrink, to hurt, to heal, and to do the same to others. I write because my fingers itch to press keys, because my heart likes the distraction. I write to be what I'm not, or become what I wish to be, no matter how far away it is or how different. I write because the words write me.
