Why do I write? More importantly, why should I write? The questions are simple, but the answers aren’t immediate.
Most of the time, I write, not knowing why. I wish I was one to jot down ideas throughout the day to write about later, but I’ve never been that type. I write to appease my professors and employers. It isn’t an act of creativity; it’s a bout of reactivity.
I might not write leisurely, but I continually place myself in writing environments. In my essay, I will explore this—contradiction?—thoroughly. My motivations do not always align with each other, but that’s okay.
For the most part, I will talk about the contrast between my motivation to write for professional purposes and for conquering my challenge of writing. Each has a different purpose, and I value one more than the other. But that’s for you to find out in my essay.
