Reasons for writing, compiled and summed up beautifully by Margaret Atwood in "Negotiating with the Dead: A Writer on Writing"

Pilfered and picked apart for my favourites of the list by me:


"To record the world as it is...To excavate the past because it has been forgotten...To satisfy my desire for revenge...Because I knew I had to keep writing or else I would die...Because to write is to take risks, and it is only by taking risks that we know we are alive...To produce order our of chaos...To please myself...To express myself...To express myself beautifully...To reward the virtuous and punish the guilty; or - vice versa...To hold a mirror up to nature...to hold a mirror up to the reader...To name the hiterto unnamed...To defend the human spirit, and human integrity and honor...To thumb my nose at death...To show the bastards...Because to create is human...Because to create is godlike...Because I hated the idea of having a job...To say a new word...To justify my own view of myself and my life, because I couldn't be "a writer" unless I actually did some writing...To make myself appear more interesting than I actually was...To rectify the imperfections of my miserable childhood...To thwart my parents... To spin a fascinating tale...To amuse and please the reader...To amuse and please myself...To pass the time, even though it would have passed anyway...Because I was driven to it by some force outside my control...Because I was possessed...Because an angel dictated to me...Because I fell into the embrace of the Muse...Because I got pregnant by the Muse and needed to give birth...To serve Art...To serve the Collective Unconcious...To serve History...To act out antisocial behaviour for which I would have been punished in real life...To master a craft so I could generate texts...To subvert the establishment...To demonstrate that whatever is, is right...To experiment with new forms of perception...To create a recreational boudoir so the reader could go into it and have fun...Because the story took hold of me and wouldn't let go...To search for understanding of the reader and of myself...To cope with my depression...To speak for the dead...To celebrate life in all its complexity...To praise the universe...To allow for the possibility of hope and redemption..To give back something of what has been given me."
