We're in a flash mode of communication. We’re connecting to the person next to us with slap happy speed. We’re texting, while eliminating most of the vowels, twittering instead of having conversations, and short posts instead of letter writing.
Someone questioned me about my need to write and my desire to be an author and this was after they were finished spouting the fact they believe books are too long, almost made me rethink my purpose for writing. There are many reasons I write and in the end, it always comes back to one thing:
I write for my grandson, so that he can grow-up and be a man who is proud of his country, thriving and striving for higher achievement.
.I write for my dad who took the struggle for freedom by running, literally. Running from the Klan as he and others stood to fight the segregation of my hometown's college.
I write for those who continue to enjoy reading good books. I write for those who value the struggles many before us went through in order to learn to read. I write because every year, when February comes around I am reminded of the triumphs of my ancestors, I get a small burst of irritation when thinking how the children are not taught about these people and the other great people of all races/ethnicity on the daily and right along with their White counterpoints.
My goal when writing, whether the reader is Black, White or all colors of the rainbow, I write for the future.
What is your reason for writing?
