Someone New

I write because in general I don't like who I am.  When I create a character I make them everything I am not and I become them.  I can do everything I have every wanted to do and be whoever I want to be.

Maybe it comes from acting.  Taking on a completely different personality and forgetting everything I am worrying about is such a release.

I also write because I crave adventure.  It's also one of the reasons I read.  To be transported to another world where I can do whatever I want to do is a magical idea for me.  The idea that whenever I pick up a pen I can go anywhere and anytime I want is so appealing.

I write to escape.

The End
