I thought it fun to do a sort of contest/giveaway thing.
Why do you write?
Answer this question in the comments, or write a post and link it to the post. The prize? A signed copy of Jazz.
And, because it wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t answer this question, I’m just going to plagiarize my self from an old post of mine:
I’m a writer because I write, because being a writer is what defines me, defines who I am and who I was and who I will be. And trust me, I wrote for all the reasons you can imagine. I wrote because I had to get those words out of my head, I wrote for fun, I wrote because I wanted to impress people, because I wanted to make them cry or laugh. I wrote because I wanted to leave something behind, because I wanted a really long Wikipedia article about me. I wrote for fame and glory, I wrote for money. I wrote because I was heartbroken, I wrote because I knew no one was going to write my stories for me. I wrote because I was starving. I wrote because I was alone.
I wrote for the entire world, and I wrote for just one person.
I wrote because I knew my stories would never come true, and I wrote because I hoped they would.
Contest is open until Sunday morning. Anyone can enter.
