Why I Write Blogfest

Photobucket

Writing is very much in my blood. My mother was a Librarian, my Dad a Clergyman and Teacher who wrote great sermons. I have always been drawn to this medium ever since I could put pen to paper. I used to write letters and stories, poems and make my own books from the age of 5 yrs old.

I write because I love composing delicious pieces of prose.
I like the reaction I get when I move someone to cry or laugh or feel angry on a character's behalf.

I like how the writing appears on the page hence my websites, my blog and the magazine and book I produced.


 







I write because it is cathartic and helps me see things in a different perspective. I can play around with our rich language.

Why do I write?  Because I love it!

Most recently I enjoy writing haiku 

and Limericks for Madeleine Kane's Blog prompt.

A woman was playing with fire
When her foot was then caught in a tyre
She screamed for some help
Though none heard her yelp
As her body became flame and then pyre



Why do you write?

  3. All good reasons, Madeleine. I started writing at 12 to escape from reality -- and now, probably for the same reason!

    I love your reasons for writing. Writing is cathartic for me, too. I've got lots to explore, so it's a great outlet.

  7. Madeleine, love the photos of your books from age five.

    Clergyman & the Librarian - seems like that would make for a great story (if you haven't already written it!) Glad you jumped in here.

  11. Madeleine, your childhood really does sound like the beginning of a novel :)

    If you don't mind me asking, what is the cloth doll magazine you pictured? It looks like something my daughter would love.

  12. You really started young. I can see I'm going to have to encourage my grandson to make his own books. Does he ever have the stories to tell!
