Addicted to Tales

One of the things Alex, Amy and I talked about yesterday was writing—a common subject and interest for us.
Alex is transitioning a bit in what he writes, focusing more on what he really loves and less on what he thought he should be doing, which is great.
I’m not changing much, though, nor do I want to. I’ve told people this before, but it’s still true—I love to tell stories. That’s what it’s all about for me. It’s not the physical writing, though I do enjoy watching the words materialize on the screen—I’d probably be fine dictating if I could find a system that worked for me. But I really do live to create tales and characters. It’s what I do. More than that, it’s who I am, which is why I get cranky whenever I haven’t written for a while. I don’t write because I enjoy it—I write because I need it.
The fact that I enjoy it is a pleasant bonus.
