Writing when you’re not a writer who can’t ‘not write’

It’s a convoluted title but it expresses, once you penetrate the layers to get to the exact meaning, something I’ve thought about before. I know a few writers and most of us would say that we can’t ‘not write’ but there must be some who write for reasons other than not being able to not write.

The title comes from a guest blog post by a writer on another writer’s website here.

I think from now, when asked why I write, I’ll say:

I write to find truth and beauty.
