1. I have written for as long as I can remember. Even before I was gifted a keyboard, or learned how to hold a pen I have always been a storyteller. I would tell a story over and over because they get better with age, the editing process involved watching my audience's faces, and feeling the words on my tongue. Even when I learned to write, it was illegible, even to me, and so oral storytelling remains my prefered method, even in the face of a keyboard.
2. Writing is therapeutic. As a child, my mom would say "it's not about whether you win or lose, it's all about the story" and it was. She could turn the worst tragedy into perfectly timed comedic relief, and as the story is told and edited, it becomes easier to tell. The crushing weight of the feelings are lifted by the sounds of laughter. Writing is how I find my peace.
3. My ultimate goal with writing would have to be to keep doing it while it's fun, and to stop when it is not. I am not trying to write a novel or become a millionaire, I write for me. I joined prose because life has become so mundane, I needed some new prompts, and I was looking for a little laughter to lighten the load.
