Why I Write

I guess you could say I am a storyteller from way back. If you ask my parents, they will  likely tell you I have been creating stories since I came out of the womb. As a child I spent hours playing make believe alone in my room. The other part of the time, I was telling stories non-stop to my family (thanks for putting up with me guys!). A love of books, well-seeded by my mother, introduced me to authors like Shel Silverstein, Roald Dahl, and Dr. Seuss. I was amazed, floored even. The stories were so clever and flowed so well together that just reading it almost caused you to start singing it. It was lyrical art! I was hooked and began writing short stories and poems.

Life went on, as it does, and I grew up to specialize in marketing, always keeping the “What if I wrote a book…” close in mind. Everything would change when I suffered a rare disorder that affected my spine, making it impossible most times to sit, stand or walk. I would endure this condition for 11 years, spending many years combined bedridden. I am now gratefully recovered, but not unchanged.

So, why do I write? I write because it makes me feel good. I write because I might be able to add a little love back into the world. I write because it keeps me up at night if I don’t. I write because I love words. I write because my great suffering taught me that children are the way. Children come into this world already knowing who they are and the meaning and purpose of life. I believe it is our job to protect this in them and feed it with loving words from all sources. So, here I am, alone in my room, making up stories yet again. Full circle and blissfully happy.
