  3. Someone said that is money hidden in the writing aim. But someone is writing without earning money because that is destiny. Is the edge of life! Is a nonprofit engagement to protect human rights, world pollution, non-cured illnesses, etc. With or without money people’s work is weighted through words!

  16. I write because I write. It’s that simple and that complex. I’ve always written and I suspect I always will.

  22. I write to record stories that I believe that if I didn’t record them, no one would tell in the future. For me, every story matters.

  33. I write because I love words and sentences and paragraphs. I can play with them like a box of orphaned, mismatched Legos, combining in them different colors and sizes and shapes, building something familiar–yet perhaps not quite like anything anyone has ever seen before.
    I write because I love to put an idea, an emotion, a story out into the world, hoping it connects with another person. My story in an online journal, accessible by anyone anywhere with a computer and internet. My story in a paper journal on a table in an art gallery in a small town in Minnesota, accessible by anyone who sits and turns a page.
    I write because if I don’t, I’m out of sorts, at odds with myself, missing a piece of me.

  38. I’m a storyteller and it’s easier to tell the stories I’ve written myself.
    In business I use the 4Ps principle: Prepare. Write the presentation out and edit. Practice. Practice so often that you can deliver a presentation without notes. Posture. I’ve rarely seen a great presentation delivered with the speakers hands in their pockets. Performance. Be the authority you have to be to make the impact.
    But it all starts with the writing.

  45. Exploring my motivation and purpose was key in understanding why i write – whether that is to inspire others or just express myself, which ultimately gives my writing meaning and purpose beyond just words in page.
