"Why I Write" Reaction
"Why I Write" by Terry Tempest Williams struck me differently than most literature I read. The passage explains why this particular author writes and what she gets out of writing. It includes a long list of short sentences, most of which beginning with the words "I write". I loved this piece because I felt i could connect very deeply to it. Most of her examples of why she writes i can apply to why I do some of the things that I do. She says that she "writes because it creates my composure". I feel similarly to why I play my guitar, it gives me almost a feeling of confidence; it calms me down. I feel that I could even write a similar list for why I play guitar, but I'll save that for another time.
