Writers Grow on Trees : Forum : Why do we write

Why do we write

12 Years Ago

I was reading your profile and you posed a question: why do we write.
I have the same answer as you. I don't exactly know. I could easily say I love to write but what is the reason why.
Everytime I get a new idea for a story or something I work on my fingers tingle and I just have to write it down. It's like being hungry and then being fed except I'm hungry for writing. Lol. :) 
So other group members. Why do you like to write? (And don't just say because you love it, give some reasons!)

Thanks for reading my profile, and the same kind of thing happens to me, only my fingers don't tingle, I just can't sit still. I always carry a note pad around with me in case I have tho write something down.
And for the ''Why we write", I think it is because some of us were born to do it. I was watching the movie Hugo the other day, and It brought up a good point. Everyone is like a gear in a machine, there are never extra gears. We must be on this planet for some reason, so why not improve it with Writing?
