What are you trying to prove?

Why are you writing? A lot of people, at least on this site, write down their emotions. Aside from this, what is your drive to release art unto the world?

P.S. 'For the ladies' is an acceptable answer.

I write, play my music and do art to try and help other people as well as for my own enjoyment and what I gain from it is very rewarding for myself also.

why are you writing?
why do our answers matter?
who the hell are you?
who are you to even ask something as personal as this?
why do you think we have to answer to you what our plans or goals are?
and do any of our answers even matter to you?
do you read the stories or poems of the people here? have you? will you?

do you like stupid fucking questions in your face?


i fucking HATE shit like this and i'm sick of it. i'm so sick of egotism run rampant in this fucking forum.
let people do what they want for their reasons. it isn't hurting you and you really don't care anyway. you know you don't so don't front.

If emotions are overrated to you I do not think you're writing for ANY purpose other than the verb it denotes.

Why can't you make other people want to appreciate things? I don't get emotions from fiction, but telling a good story is its own reward. :shrug:

Wanting is an emotion, I believe.

That would be longing. It's more of a drive, at least how I mean it.

TheNAUGHTicalLife Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012  Professional Writer
In my eyes longing and wanting are both emotions. I think I get what you're going at and that 'drive' was the basis of my question. 'What drives you to write.'

i'm just saying writing doesn't always have to be about emotions to be worth something to someone.

Sure if the writing in question is a peer-reviewed essay. Otherwise writing needs to have some emotional element to it or it's just another Danielle Steel POS.

no really. it sucks to have a forum full of cynical shitheads who do nothing but fucking crap all over everything and act like their shitty opinion is how it is based on one thing they read one time 10 years ago (or never, which is even better. how often do you read romance novels, my man?). i thought you were going to be different. i was wrong. sucks for everyone that you're not better than you could be.

I'm sorry I couldn't fulfill your expectations. I sort of appreciate how you think it sucks for everyone that I'm not meeting my potential. :) Thanks.

I'm not crapping on you at all. I think we might have a disconnect on the connotation of 'emotion.'

I write because I feel as if I have to. I get antsy when I'm in a situation where I CAN'T write. So I always carry things around with me even though I know I'll never use it. I guess it's more to prove to others that I'm more than what they see. I often feel as if there are two types of people in the world. Them and me, and "me" is very separated from "them". I know it's silly and possibly deranged, but I really only ever show emotion through my writing. I can fully express myself and I'm good at it. It's just like talking. I can show people that I do have emotions. I can care. I am a clever little special snowflake darnnit. I don't have to be in the background and I can create something meaningful. It's all flash and vanity really. I share to showoff, but at the end of the day the pieces that really matter and say the most I usually keep to myself even though they're probably the best and everything else is rubbish. Writing is a reminder that I exist even if no one else will acknowledge that.

(geez this is long)
I guess I write just cause I really like to. I want to do everything and writing is a start. I love art and so far writing is a skill I'm a bit better at than other art related areas like painting, music related things, and drama. It's a beginning to everything. Someday I do want to learn a dance, do a bit of acting, perform a song I made myself, but untill then I'll finish one level then move on I guess.

(So many answers, sheesh. This is the top one I guess.)

Every minute aspect carries with it tiny parts of my personality that someone who knows me well would stare at the hypothetical camera and raise one eyebrow when noticing. Enough so that I can say it IS a physical permanent manifestation of at least a general form of myself. Which indirectly could mean that if it becomes, and then still is big 500 years from now, that that's like I became immortalized.
