Why I write/blog/compose poetry/journal

"You better do it now because you know how to write, and you have fingers, and you have this one life, and during this one life, you should put your words down, and make your voice heard, and then let others hear your voice. And the only way any of that's going to happen is if you actually do it. People can't read the thoughts in your head. They can only read the thoughts you put down, carefully and with great love, on the page. So you have to do it, dammit. You have to do it, and you can step back and be happy."  

--Dave Eggers, pep talk e-mail for NaNoWriMo
