Why Do You Write Adveture

Why do you write? Where do your ideas come from?

Today, on Write On! Online, author and Columbia professor Helen Benedict, The Edge of Eden, says:

"I write because I can’t bear not to write. My ideas come from images, sentences, memories. Writing and reading are the most powerful ways we have of flying out of our own skins and learning about other people, other worlds—and of learning how to recognize the human being even in those radically different from us. I write to do that."

Why do you write? Post in comments section below.
