I Write Therefore I Am

Everyday Inspiration

Day One: I write because …

Today, tell us: why do you write? Set a timer and free-write for 15 or 30 minutes without stopping. Begin your post with “I write because …” or start it any other way you wish.

I write because I can’t draw or paint, so I make pictures with words.

I can’t sing so I try to write poems and that way I can  lift my voice up as high or as low and with much feeling as I can manage.

I write because the world is full of stories just waiting to be found and to be told. When I write, I feel like I just found treasure.

I write because I want to be heard and understood, I write because I want to listen and learn.

I write because I hope that after I’m gone, someone will find something I wrote and say, ” You know, I think I get her. She was sort of cool in a weird way.”

I write because I the world is full of adventure and mystery, horrible cruelty and sweet kindness and I want to do my part to save those little glimpses into our ‘once upon a time’.

I write because I have always been a storyteller.

Mr Dancey’s Bones

used to waltz alone

on the dusty granite floor of his tomb.


Mr Dancey’s Bones

used to sing alone

starting at Sunset

in his dark and dusty tomb.


Mr Dancey’s Bones

should have been left alone

to waltz and sing alone

in his crumbling lonely tomb.


But you went to his tomb

and opened the door


Mr Dancey’s Bones

won’t be alone

Things I Like

Mark Ryden

Mark Ryden

I like questions

and riddles

cupcakes and science

snow and ice and rain.

I like scary stories and horror stories

and pictures of bones and cats.


I like dark nights and gloomy mornings

fog and pumpkins and sunflowers.


I like the Ocean,

not so much the mountains

and I can’t breath in open spaces.


I like writing and dreaming

and Mozart and Monet

and books written a long time ago.

Day Two: “Street” — Establishing Shot

Yesterday, we asked you to interpret home in your own way. Today, let’s focus on a street.

This is an interesting street.

The Train tracks are on the original street, the street above was built over it.

This is a cross section in the truest sense of the word.

If you look closely you can now see the newer buildings crowding into the older buildings, dwarfing them, hiding them, waiting for their chance to eat the sky.
