Why I Write: Trisha Wolfe

That is a good, but difficult question. It seems like it should be the easiest, though, for a writer to answer. And I know many, including myself, would say that we all write for ourselves. Which, we do. But I think once you’ve been writing long enough, it turns into something so much more.

I fell in love with books in middle school. Every night I looked forward to a great escape away from the monotony of school, parents, other kids, etc. I would read until three or four in the morning, crash out for a couple of hours, then go to school and do the day all over again. I decided at the age of fourteen I was going to be a writer, and that one day I’d be one the those authors that I looked up to so much. Someone who wrote these great, fantastical worlds where I got lost in. Honestly, that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do. 

So yes, I write for myself. I have to. I’ve been talking (mumbling) to myself since I was a baby, since before I even knew what words were, and if I didn’t have these characters in my head to blame it on, I would probably be locked up by now. No lie. I talk to myself non-stop. It can get scary living with me.

But once I decided to take that leap and put my writing out into the world, and people actually read it, I think I’m considering the readers more at this point. And I think I’m now writing for every girl or boy out there who dares to dream of fantastical worlds to get lost in.

And who hope to see their own dreams realized.

  1. Why I write and why I read...those questions will both take some serious thought! So, no intelligent response from me, but thanks for prodding me to think on these things. Could be enlightening! ;)
