Why Do We Have To Write Today?

Whenever we write as a class, the main question asked is, “Why do we have to write today?” I have created a list saying all the reasons we have to write and why you would want to write.

    To read your own stories.
    To express your beliefs.
    To put yourself into famous stories.
    To plan.
    To release stress.
    Because why not?
    To understand.
    To learn.
    Because it’s fun.
    To relax.
    To write yourself as fictional.
    To be subtle.
    To be true.
    To be original.

    To be immortal.

That’s the list of reasons that you have to write today, and any day for that matter. Anyways I encourage you to think of reasons that you have to write today.

This post is inspired by a post called “Why do we have to write today?” by Todd Finley

Peaceful Walk

Wandering through the woods, he heard the birds chirping and the frogs croaking. The trees were just tall enough to block the sun from becoming a distraction. As he walked, the twigs and leafs he stepped on were merely white noise in the forest. He looked around for any more beauty, and he saw what he was looking for. A little stream trickling is a steady fashion.

The stream was the most prefect creation among the Earth. It was running over shining rocks and under fallen logs. The water was ice-cold to the touch and freezing to the taste. The heavenly stream empties into a little pond, abound with fish. He sat there, thinking. Watching.

Hours, which seemed like minutes, passed by as he sat there watching the water. When he snapped out of his trance he realized that it was nearly dark. He stood up and saw fireflies illuminating the sky. He started his trek home. Stuck in perpetual motion towards home, listening to the sounds of animals and nature. He finally arrived to his humble abode. And when he stepped foot into his yard, he couldn’t help but to think about returning to that oasis.
