#WhyIWrite

Surprise! It’s National Day on Writing!

Understandably, you may not have known unless you work at a Writing Center, have an astute writing professor, or follow a member of the writing community on Twitter.

To commemorate the sacred holiday, I wrote this poem:

I write because it makes me a better writer,

which makes me a better reader,

which makes me a better thinker,

which makes me a better listener,

which makes me a better-better thinker,

which makes me a slightly better writer,

which makes me a better tutor,

which makes me a better student,

which makes me a better worker,

which makes me a better job candidate,

which will—hopefully—make me rich

enough to buy cookies and cream, Sharpies, and electricity

which will power my ability to write

a story that will make me stupid rich.

“Why I Write” by A Starving Writing Consultant- October 20, 2016

 

DISCLAIMER: This is not my best work, but I only just saw what day it was (thanks, Twitterverse!) and deadlines are less imaginary than unicorns.
