I've never been asked outright why I actually like to write, but I always feel like I have to give a reason. Maybe it's just the writer in me that can't wait to describe the amazing feeling after reading something good that's just been written. Or maybe it's for the feeling that a tiny ounce of praise creates. I always provide an explanation because I feel like it's my duty as a writer.
I first began writing many years ago, probably when I was about ten or eleven years old, maybe older. What I wrote then was very basic (and I mean basic. Stories about talking hamsters and the like. Yes, really). It didn't really amount to anything, and I didn't think it would, but at least it was a start. Even then I had this desire, this urge, to create my own stories.
It was only about 3 years ago that I actually started writing seriously again, fully determined to write a novel of my own (or novels plural, as I now find myself doing). I still have the desire to create worlds. The characters in my head won't stop nagging me if I don't put my ideas down on paper.
The main reason I began story writing was because I love reading. I devour all sorts of stories, being a huge fan of Young Adult fiction. The fact that being a writer gives you so many possibilities and situations to develop is just the start. Forming characters is one of the best feelings, especially when they don't turn out how you thought they would.
I have so many inspirations. Richelle Mead, J. K. Rowling, Meg Cabot, Suzanne Collins to name a few. These authors are also part of the reason why I write. I want to be able to do what they do, create a world for people to read and characters to fall in love with.
One of the main reasons I write is because of the flexibility. No one can tell me that I shouldn't write that, or that I am not allowed to write that. It is my own choice. I write because I want to, and because I enjoy it, and because it hurts not to. And sometimes, it's because real life is just not enough.
