One of mah buddies, the soon-to-be-published Adam Slade over at Editing Hat posed the question How did you get started? and I answered it. Now he has asked Why do you write? Now I'm answering that. I guess, if Adam asks a question, it seems that I will answer it.
I find my answer is near to his, in that I don't write to ponder some great moral dichotomy or political agenda. When I find themes and symbolism in my writing, I assure you, I'm as surprised as the next person. I've always written what I wanted to read. I love to escape. I'm always looking for the door out of reality. If one opened to Narnia, right now, I'd jump through that fu#@%r with nary a backwards glance, White Witch, Big Scary Minotaur thing or no.
You know what would be really awesome? If there were others that wanted to follow.
Arm yourselves, Fearless Readers! I think I felt a cold draft from the direction of my chest of drawers!!
