Why Do I Write?

Here is a personal piece, on Huff Post today:

“…Why do I write?

Because I have the right.

When the question with its permutations and accusations ‘why do you write…’ is not asked of me or others, I might decide that I can lay-off it, still being happy amongst the mothers.

Even then, I will probably write between the times I read, knit and mother my children – my loves, my light.

Because although, when I write, I do not claim to speak for everybody, I know that when I speak for myself I speak for somebody.”
