Why I Write

Since I have yet discovered the path to earning a living as a writer, I have another career, one that takes a great deal of time, attention and devotion. Yet, that does not change the fact that I have a compulsion to write. There are some days, actually most, that if I don’t sit and write, even if it is simply a single paragraph, my day is incomplete. So strong is that yearning, that if I don’t write, I can not rest.

My stomach will hurt.

My head will pound with increasing intensity. 

My heart will ache as if I have lost a loved one.

I am not at peace, until words flow from my mind, through my hands, onto paper or computer screen. I am compelled to tell stories. It is my hope that you enjoy reading them. 

Yet, even if no other eyes but my own experience my work, I will continue to write. 

When it comes to that burning passion which is to write – I have no choice, I have no free will.

“Who am I?”

I am an independent, self-published teller of tales. I am an author of scarcely any renown. However, as a storyteller, I know who I am, and with that persona, I am both confident and comfortable. I invite you to visit my website,  ShortStoryScribe.com and/or Amazon Author Page, if you are so inclined please purchase a copy and leave a review.

Thank you,
