Why I Write

Jeff Goins is a writer who has been very helpful to me (though he doesn’t know it.   He has written a couple of books that I’ve found to be very helpful.

He recently wrote a post on his blog called, “Why I Write.”   In it he urges people to share why they write.    So, I am.

I write for three reasons:

  1. I write because it helps motivate people to make a difference for the kids in Haiti.   If you want to read more about that, go to http://glahaiti.org/toms-make-a-difference to see more of that.
  2. I write because I believe that we’re all better off if we share life together.   There are too many people who are struggling quietly and feel like they are all alone.   By writing, I can help people not feel so alone.
  3. I write because it helps me figure out what I think.   As Flannery O’Conner said, “I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.”

That’s just part of why I write.   I also write because life is never boring and there’s no shortage of material to write about.

Stay tuned and thanks for visiting…..
