“I write because it’s my lifeblood.”
“I write because it’s the air I breathe.”
“I write because no one understands me but the page.”
That’s stupid. Borderline retarded. You may actually be an idiot. And not even subjectively. By law and regulation, your IQ is probably 12.
Write because you love it. And tell people that. Don’t get all flowery and poetic and “oh poor me I’m a tortured artist love me.” That’s annoying. And I can’t take you seriously. Ever.
Because every single wannabe writer writes for that reason. They don’t care about transmitting the picture from their head to yours via ink. They want attention.
And those answers are for attention.
Why do I write?
I love to write. I love the challenge. I love that I can’t write for days and days, but suddenly something will strike me and I can’t write enough of it down. And then I get frustrated and crumple up the page and toss it in the corner for a few days until I pick it up again and think, “Hey, this might actually make something good…”
I write because I love being angry at that blank sheet of paper, that blank document, sitting in front of me, just waiting for me to write on it. I love the fear that comes when I start the first sentence and scratch it out several times until it’s just right and I feel I can continue on with the story. I love how that little blinking cursor taunts me at the end of the last sentence, waiting for me to write more, because it knows I haven’t done my best. It knows I’ll come back in a few minutes or hours or days or weeks or months and fix it. And it lets me know that.
I write because I can’t live without that anxiety, that stress, that comes when you’ve written something you think is fantastic, and despite your conviction that you’re really writing just to write, your heart sinks to your stomach and you dry heave when no one says anything about your latest work of brilliance. I write for the rejection, for the people who criticize me and say they can do better but never try. Because at least I’m giving it my best shot. What the fuck have you done lately? I may not hit the mark every time, hell, I might not even hit the target, but at least I pulled the fucking trigger.
Write because you love it. And tell people just that. Don’t hide it. Don’t be coy. That shit isn’t cute. It’s bothersome, like that fly that buzzes in the room but you can’t find it, and when you finally do it’s because it’s crawling on your face. So you kill it. You smash it. You render its form meaningless.
I will kill you. I will render you meaningless.
Nice to know celebrities are normal too

Lily & Marshall - How I Met Your Mother
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune—without the words,
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.
I’ve heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
— Emily Dickinson
