I write because it is my need as a human being to create. I write for the same reason I do wood working or paint pictures or write music. It is in our nature to create, to model God in a way. Because putting one word in front of another is the simplest way I can think of to create my own world, my own universe. It my way of speaking to the universe and the best way for the universe to understand what I’m saying. I write because I have to, because I wouldn’t know what to do with a life without it.
