As you may know, I have been interviewing a slew of screenwriters recently and I’m always fascinated to hear the variety of ways writers go about their craft. Also, too, I have enjoyed researching each writer, reading their scripts, watching their movies, and coming up with what I hope are compelling questions providing informative answers for GITS readers.
But as I was out for my run today, it occurred to me I had been overlooking perhaps the single most fundamental question of all: Why do you write?
I will definitely add that to my list of questions. Moreover I thought it would be a good time to check in with GITS readers and ask the same thing: Why do you write?
Look at this as an opportunity to step back from the whirlwind of your life and reflect on your writing. What are your motivations for writing? Maybe it’s mostly about goals and aspirations. Perhaps it’s tied to the fulfillment you get out of creating something out of nothing.
Whatever the reasons are, I would be interested to see what you have to say, and I suspect the rest of the GITS community would, too.
So again: Why do you write?
