Kayeleen Hamblin, was the title of my very first blog post here at writercize.
Here is one passage from that entry: I write because it challenges my mind and makes me feel, in my own small way, powerful. Control over what I can communicate to the world is an incredible tool. Writing forces me to reflect in ways that spoken dialogue does not permit, allows me to sift through information and pick out the interesting bits that turn my brain on. I write because it calms and soothes me, because it makes me curious, because I feel accomplished when I read over a statement and know I am connecting.
Since I don't want to just cheat and repeat, I've decided to alter the question slightly and post that as today's writercize.
