Some folks ask me why I write. The answer is, "just because." Mostly because I just like to tell stories. But also because I like to connect with people and writing helps me do that. I write a story about my life, my kids, a client, or whatever else is on my mind. And usually in that I try to share something I've learned about life and how whatever I'm writing about has impacted me. And when I publish it there's folks who will call or email or send me a message about how they can relate to it, how something similar has happened in their life. And so by writing it down and sharing it I get to connect with that person and learn something about them. It's kind of like a conversation except it's a conversation I get to have with a whole bunch of people at one time. For me it's almost therapeutic.
Some folks ask me why I print it. "In this digital age," they say, "why not just email it?" Well, the truth is, I'm a little be old school about reading. I don't have a Kindle or any other screen to read books on. I tried that and found that I didn't like it very much at all. The pages don't feel right, and they sure don't smell as good. I subscribe to a couple of magazines, and I get them in print. I always found that when I subscribed to electronic versions I never really read them. I get several hundred emails per day and they just seemed to get buried but I find that if they are printed I will read them. Writing is a form of conversation for me but it only works if people read it. And so I print it so that people like me will read it. There's an electric version right down there, if that's your thing. Or if you're a little bit old-school like me punch in your address and I'll send your copies by U.S. Mail.
