Mid-way through the March Challenge I came across a poem Betsy wrote on Teaching Young Writers. It is entitled “Why I Write.” There are so many reasons each of us choose to write and to come back and share our writing with this community each Tuesday year-round. When you leave the link to your slice of life story today, consider answering the following question: Why do you write?

Why I Write

I write for myself
so I can express something
relive something
release something.
I write to hear my voice
to feel my words
to value myself.
I write to inspire
to awaken
to see
to reflect.
I write
for me.

–Betsy Hubbard
