e.g, making money, being recognized, having fun. What drives you to write.

Seeking inner peace. Everything goes around and around without stopping or giving me a break. If I talk about it it give some reliefe, and of course sleeping is always good, but sometimes writing is the only thing that can get my head to shut the fuck up

not that what I write or think is any good, but its better than nothing.

Why does this affection of a Southern drawl make me immediately assume a slightly insane, plus-sized woman with "quirky" glasses & a red polka dot dress is typing it from her studio apartment in Portland?

I've already given up on becoming rich or famous. Even though I share most of my writings online for free, not many care. I guess I just want to leave some proof behind that I existed, that I tried to create something different, instead of just being wagecuck number 903816478113.

Hatred. I want to put my perspective on the world into words so that other people can read them and also be miserable.

>> No.15054828

Mostly for self enjoyment/stress relief. Don't mind the idea of someone relating to my writing

>> No.15054853

I enjoy playing with words. Researching them (say, etymology), arranging them, rearranging them, evaluating the quality of the various patterns that can be formed. I constantly do so in my head, perhaps to make up for the fact that I can't form any mental images, am a terrible painter, and can't competently play an instrument; words are all I have, my sole source of stimulation and aesthetic pleasure.

I don't want recreational sex anymore. It makes you miserable and it's never satiated. Best tiers are self mastery or limit it to monogamy.

I find it the best way to explain the way I think about things, and I find a lot of humor in pointing out absurdity.
Also, I fucking hate reddit-tier writers and journalists.

This + owning my high school peers who I haven't seen in 7 years and who surely haven't thought about me lol

>> No.15055432

>>15055392
Fuck me this. I've long moved past daydreaming about performing the song I'm listening to in front of my high school, but whenever I write something I can't help but imagine myself meeting some old high school friends and saying "what up, I'm now a writer ;^)" while they list all of their boring wagecuckholdry. Why am I such a delusional egomaniac

Jesus the cringe, I used to do this too man. I used to pretend the songs I was listening too and I was now this big rock star who came back to school to perform at the assemblies, don't know what you Americans call it. But now 7 years has passed since graduation and I still dream about randomly meeting all the key figures, the bullies the hot girls the Chads, and owning them with how much of a success I am. Sad thing is I barely moved on and they, as far as I see on their social media, are having a good life. Not fair considering all I have is PTSD that has left me a socially stunted NEET

I believe that along with music, writing is the closest humans can come to creating something out of nothing, and therefore closer to godhood

>>15055454
I'm not even american bro, I'm starting to think the "playing at school" trope is a recessive meme inside most of modern youth (and almost certainly before). I still fantadize about perform the song I'm listening to, but at least now I'm in front of a normal audience at a club/festival, maybe on tv if it's something very poppy

I've been writing since I was in middle school, so it has some sentimental value for me. I get an itch when I avoid it for too long.

>> No.15056412

On one hand, I just feel like I need to contribute my writing as if it were something that’s built-in to my nature. On the other hand, it’s a desire to do something for a living that I don’t find completely detestable.

My official answer: Self-actualisation. That I may more fully realise the drama of our lives by translating it to page, and in doing so, understand it perhaps one percent better than I had before.

My real answer? Fame. I want to be recognised.

>> No.15056521

There's a lot here, I'm afraid.

Self-esteem.
Escapism.
Winning the fight in what's becoming a constant struggle to finish my work before long-term effects of hypoglycemia damage too much of my brain.
Nostalgia; Trying to rejuvenate and preserve the magic of my childhood.
Also, a lot of ideas bouncing around in my head that just won't go away, nagging at me to manifest. I can't stop thinking about my work. It makes other people's books, videogames, movies, whatever, look like shit to me. I'm very troubled.
