Haha, similar to me. I have a problem thinking too much :lol: And it can be about anything. Sometimes it's an artform (when it's not putting thoughts down or copying notes, well sometimes, just sometimes, those become an artform ^_~). The written word is a gift-it must be used. So, why not?! I've also an affinity with languages and scripts, and writing helps, alot :o Otherwise I can't explain it. :P

lmao. I put to spite Pat Buchanan. That's just hilarious. I've always wanted to emulate the greats of fantasy and create my own worlds. I would always be frustrated when a scene didnt go as I wanted it to, and from this my desire to write was born.

Writing is fun for me, but I put if I stopped, I'd die because writing is my main outlet for emotion. Without it, I'd be a hormonal, emotional wreck.

If I don't get my ideas on paper or somewhere I'll never be able to get a moment's rest.

If I stop, I die. It really is that simple.

I tend to be a pathological liar, so writing is my one way to acknowledge the truth. Express my thoughts without hiding behind a curtain of lies? Sure.

Do you lie to random strangers for no real reason at all? I do that all the time...

Sort of. Mostly, I lie to myself. It's bizarre...

I ... um ... I don't know, really. It's like this big energy release. Or something. Not exactly release, actually. More energy creator. I write and I get so exicted and I bounce off walls and the ceiling and stuff and I have to use up all this energy that just came from NOWHERE.

So I guess that's why.

That or I just like doing it and it'd be too much trouble to change my dreams about being an author now.

Actually, I write both to escape and for fun, but I can only vote for one of them, so I voted to escape.

I had to say "never really thought about it", because I don't know. I just...do. It's like, I can't imagine myself not a writer. It's so weird.
