I Write To Understand Why I Care

It’s My Way of Making Sense of Things

I’m very easy-going.

I’m also very values-driven.

When something goes against my values, I become very fierce.

Inequality, Injustice, Unkindness, Unfairness all go against my values.

These behaviours make me angry.

I’m not an angry person.

Writing helps me to work through that.

Writing helps me to make sense of what I’m feeling.

Writing helps me to understand why I care.

Writing helps me to write about why I care.

Writing helps me to put my thinking out into the world.

Writing gives me a voice to say what I want to say.

Writing is my way.

Writing gives me my way — Always.
