I have been meaning to write about this for a while now, so I am glad that it is today's prompt.
What inspires you to write?
I write with the hope that by the end I will have learned something. Usually it is something about myself, but not always.
Sometimes I write about stuff other than myself - I do! Look at my tag cloud! - and sometimes I even do a bit of research. Sometimes it is just a rant, but even then, looking at it after it is done, I hope to find insight and perhaps even tolerance. I hope, perhaps, that some of you might gain the same.
Most of the time, I write about my feelings. I write about my fears and concerns and self doubts. I write to let them all out and sort through them. I can't make sense of them when they are twisting and turning in my head. They look less scary on paper or on the screen. More manageable.
I write to learn about myself.
