Why I Write Q&A

Along with other contributors for Unsavory Elements, I was interviewed for the site Why I Write. I talk about everything from how I started writing and how I handle writer’s block to my favorite books and what I’m working on. Here’s a snippet:

Why I write
I think I’m like many writers, afflicted with the urge to share my experiences with the world. But for me, writing is a deeply personal endeavor. I began writing first in journals when I was growing up. Journaling was a way for me, a highly sensitive and introverted young girl, to make sense of the world in a safe space. It was through writing that I found strength, hope and – much later – my vocation in life. It’s no wonder then that I still find myself drawn to subjects that I’m personally connected to in one way or another.

I also write because I see the need for a new perspective on a subject, or even the potential to change someone’s perspective.

You’ll find the full Q&A on Why I Write. And if you love it, share it!

P.S.: Thanks to Tom Carter for this opportunity, and also to Susan Blumberg-Kason for already sharing the Q&A online!

    It was a really interesting read. Even though I’m not a writer myself I do write a blog and from that point of view I really admire the skill you put into your blog posts.
