This is my first draft. It is… okay. It is something that I would write because I had to for class. I think that is why I was so frustrated and unhappy with it. It is so forced. This is the second draft of my first version for ‘Why I Write.’ It wasn’t until my next draft, a brainstorming draft, that I realized I cannot do this honestly if I’m trying to explain to someone else why it is that I write. I have to explain it to myself.
