Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!
Our Twitter is @TheIWSG and hashtag #IWSG.
Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG Day post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say.
Remember, the question is optional!!!

IWSG November 4th Question:
Albert Camus once said, “The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.” Flannery O’Conner said, “I write to discover what I know.” Authors across time and distance have had many reasons to write. Why do you write what you write?
I write because I love to read. Reading has been my friend and companion as an only child all my life. I learned to read before I started Kindergarten. I started really writing when I began writing Star Wars online role play and creating story for the RPG.
I write for some of the same reasons I read. I write for fun, escape, and the challenge. I write because I love story and have learned a lot from reading authors. I want to share that same joy, fun, escape, and learning experience with others. It made my life better and took me to fantastical places and taught me about art and gift creativity in the daily living. I want to give and share that with others through my own writing.
