We write because we must! What does this mean? It means that writing has become a part of our daily lives. How did we get to this place with our writing? Simply said, we integrated writing into the rest of our lives.
Integration is the key to living the creative life. We have been writing since we were kids — does that sound familiar? Poets often tell us they dabbled in short stories and poems in the early grades or as a teen, and put it aside when “real” life took over. Others are inspired by poetry readings or books and feel drawn to the writing process. Whatever led you to this path — keep going. Look around: there is much to see and hear.
Remember: write because you must!
