I write to understand others and myself, and carefully convey this information to my readers.
Writing forces you to break down your thoughts, beliefs, emotions and feelings; analyze them and condense them back into something more meaningful, and easier to read.
Writing also exposes you to the thoughts, beliefs, emotions and feelings of your characters as you try to imagine yourself in their shoes. You force yourself to experience what your characters are experiencing, so you can understand them, and write about it. That’s why writers are generally more perceptive, about how others feel.
With great power come great responsibility. Writers are responsible for understanding humanity and disseminating that knowledge to their readers. Writers are the encyclopedia of humanity, and our stories help people understand each other.
