Why do people write?

Why do people write?

As I write this post I have the feeling of awesomeness of the phenomena that writing is, the overwhelming urge to put my pen to paper; the stupendous process of thoughts being translated into words; I come to find myself asking, why is it that we write?


Why do we share thoughts, opinions, advises, stories and experiences through the written word, and not just use the word of mouth? And aside from the sole purpose of saving information or knowledge on paper; we tend to express our selves via written words more strongly and accurately than we do vocally.


You can come to know some people better through reading their work; you see, you can never lie to that piece of paper in front of you; and why should you; you can show it love, happiness, joy, hope and it will accept it all, no questions asked. Similarly show hate and that white piece of paper will accept it, show it vengeance, ugliness, evil, perversion and it will still accept it all, also no questions asked. But why do we do it?

We tend to use that generous nature of the white piece of paper, and we scribble on it all of our inmost desires and secrets, jot down all of our fears and hope, write in it our wishes and dreams; and use it to communicate with others of this world. But why do we do it?

Words are magic; civilizations are written in history, and history is written in words, and if not in words, were drawn on walls. Written words are there to stay, to be constant, to always have effect. But why do we do it?


Do you think people are ever afraid to write? There could be a lot of pain or joy that we may never read about. Also why do we choose to read what we do? Is there something that draws you in before, or is it just wanting to see how someone else views the world? For example, why are you reading my blog?

Writing is powerful, it really is. Even just something that is simple can be very moving to someone. Are people running scared because once written those words cannot be undone.

Words can really change to world.

That brings us to my question, why do we write? Do we write, because we have something to say, or do we write because we have too, maybe we write because we have talent to do so, or we write because we just can, I know we definitely write so we can share, share our hopes and dreams, our failures and successes, share our falls and our raise, our defeats and victories, our hate and love, or simply just share our thoughts. Writing is a matter that can be very intimate, like a journal or a personal dairy; or can be very public like a column or an article.



I believe we write because we feel the power of the written words; reading words and hearing them are totally different, when we read the stories we live their worlds, we embrace the heroes, we become the words we read, imagination runs free, not limited by other senses of vision, touch, hearing or even smell. While reading, your world is the extent of your mind, and the mind can cross spaces of time and distance, bend realities and makeup new rules, that we actually can't do. When I read about war, I can imagine my own custom settings of that war, even with all details given to me by the writer, I still can manage to make it my own, while in films, you are limited to what your vision interprets to the brain, if you see a red tank, you cant convince yourself it's blue.
I believe words say and have it all, you can express feelings otherwise unexpressed by sounds, written words are always true, no matter the pretense or the facade been put, you can always find parts of the writer in their own words.

I write these words, to write, because I love writing; I write these words to speak with all you reading this, I write these words to share my feelings.....



So tell me, why do YOU write what you write?

  2. AWESOME POST!
    I write because it's the best way to express what goes on in my head, and it's also just a good way to remember life - to be able to go back in time reading old journals.

    Also, I've found that writing letters to people when I'm angry or upset really helps me release that frustration as if I was really yelling at them, but then I can tear up the letter or delete it from my computer without starting a conflict, and I can just move on with it - or I can recollect my thoughts in a way to approach it more calmly.

  3. I write what I write because my words give me comfort and keep me company, help me make sense of all that is around me and in me, all that I feel and experience, and when I write, I feel good inside, like I did something powerful, like you said, something sacred that links me to my own spirituality. When I don't write, I feel alone, until the moment I can write again. The saddest thing is not writing, but the happiest is thinking that I can write again. Paper and writing are silent companions, a steady means to communicate. Sometimes I write a story in my head even before I can write it down. This is almost as good as writing, but a story, a moment, is remembered if written. It's a bizzare thing, writing. It's beautiful.

  5. I love to write, but I find it awkward to have my own blog. I'm more of a pencil and paper kind of person. On pencil and paper, it's more personal, it's permanent, and it's not subject to harsh criticism like it would be if I were to post in my blog. I like living in an open society, but many people are just a little too open. I choose to be a bit more private.

  7. Why do I write? I write for I am hollow from inside. I write for I cannot make sense of this world and try to explain things so that I can fully understand them myself.I write because I know my lifespan will just be just 70 years,after which I will become part of the very soil I walk with swagger. I write because I simply want to provide an outlet to all the feelings and emotions trapped inside me.Thus, I write not for others but for myself.

  8. I never felt the urge to write anything that I want to show or point out to anyone else, even if try to write something I feel its not of much use to anyone because every word that I have written has a whole new deep meaning for me, different than what anyone else interprets it. I write for my own relief.

  9. Hi Sue,
    I came across your post as I was putting together my ideas for teaching writing in 4th grade this year. Your question is one that I want my students to explore as we write and look at other authors' writing. I am thinking I might have them post the question on our blog and try to get some responses from people on the web. I am hoping this may help expand some of my reluctant students' limited view of what writing is.
    Thanks for your post.

  10. Words are like fire, you can put them out or keep them raising. The words I choose are because they are the fire I need to make a paper filled every vision in my head. I feel as if they are a song waiting to be put together like a cars need gas fuel to get on around. Writing is the only the thing I can trust, but the fire can only keep going if you let it.
