Why do you write? What keeps you motivated?

I have been writing for two solid years now and I can't imagine going through a day without writing, my day wouldn't be complete without it. Writing has become my therapy and my outlet. What I find quite interesting is that prior to December 31st 2010, I had never kept a journal or a diary. I wrote only when required to by my school assignments. I knew that I was considered by my professors a very capable thesis writer but I never imagined that I would ever come to love writing simply for the sake of writing and expressing myself. Writing has become a gift to myself, it relaxes me, rids me of my anxieties and de-stresses me just by virtue of filling my computer screen with words and thoughts. Moreover my writing has opened up a whole new world that I didn't know was out there. I have had the ultimate good fortune in making new friends that I treasure, that I would have never met but with writing through the platform of WordPress. My motivation lies in the many benefits that writing affords me and through the relationships that I have developed. I want to stay engaged with myself and the world. That is what writing means to me.
