This quote by the wonderful Charlotte Bronte pretty much sums it up for me. Sometimes, writing is not about inspiring or being creative. For those few moments in reality, we write simply because we just can’t help it. And for the lucky ones, these moments come more often than sometimes. I know this might sound like a bit of an exaggeration, but to certain writers, writing is akin to breathing. Just as we need oxygen to survive, writers need writing in order to live- you wonder why people say writers are insane. I say if insanity means living a life worthwhile by creating a world unimaginable to the ‘sane’, then yes, writers are insane.
I’m going to keep this post short and say briefly, sometimes, we write because we just can’t help it. And you know, that is answer enough to anyone who questions. On a side note, Charlotte Bronte is a poet and novelist. She lived till the age of 38 when she passed away whilst pregnant. She is the author of the highly acclaimed novel Jane Eyre.
