Honestly, when I first received this prompt , my first thought was “because I can’t draw”.
There are several reasons why I write.
- I have always been one of those people who is good at taking a story and making it fun . (I am not the one you want to be a witness. It would take me hours to tell what I saw for two minutes).
- I like my own spin on things. Even if something bad happens, by the time I write it, it has at least a few lighter moments.
- I like thinking that readers enjoy a lighter version of life.
Actually, I think it boils down to I like to talk and tell stories. By writing I can reach a lot more people than I can any other way.
By the way , I really can’t draw.
