I write to record my thinking
I write to note interesting research.
I write to show love.
I write to remember.
I write to pack away memories for later.
I write to organize myself, my belongings, my world.
I write to communicate with my peers, my students, my friends, my family.
I write to tell my stories.
I write to direct others.
I write to add enjoyment to my life.

So many wonderful reasons to write. I love “I write to add enjoyment to my life.” If only all of our students would find this same enjoyment.

Love your list! My favorites: “I write to tell my stories,” and “I write to show love.”

I write to show love. Oh, I love that. I think I write Slice of Life Stories for the same reason.

I love writing for many of the same reasons you do. I write for therapy too.

It seems each is a great reason to write…writing is giving. Thank you for being generous.
