"Why Do I Write" ~ Cecilia Woloch

Why Do I Write ~ Cecilia Woloch


Such an interesting and impossible question! My first impulse is to steal an answer Samuel Beckett (I think) gave to this question: “Because I can’t help myself.” My second impulse is to say that I began to write, I think, from sheer love of language, of the sounds and images words can create, and from intoxication with the music of language and how the inner life could be made manifest — or almost — in words. These days I’m writing more prose, and there’s a strong impulse to communicate with others,
to tell stories that might not otherwise be told.
