I write because I always proofread and correct others

but am afraid to be corrected myself.
I write because correcting others is so unappreciated.
I write because I once heard a visiting medical exchange
student tell me his goal in life was not to become a
doctor, but to become a writer – it took him 9 years but
he did it.
I don't write poems because I have never been able to
appreciate poems.
I would like to write a book about signs with typos and
funny expressions which I have been collecting all over
the world.
I write in Swedish because that is my mother tongue.
I write in english because that is the language of
my dreams.
I write in hebrew because that is the language of God.
I write using cloud computing because it gives me the
feeling of being in the sky close to God.
I write in order to be understood.
I write because I am a second generation holocaust
survivor imbued with the notion that you must write in
order to be remembered.
I write because Anne Frank wrote a diary and that’s why
everyone remembers her today.
I write because I would like to try to understand how
man can commit such unspeakable crimes as the
holocaust, the Ruanda and Cambodia massacres,
and 9/11.
I write to still the hunger I feel for books and to get the
books out of my system.
I write because I don't understand what I think until I
write it down.
I write out of love for writing and out of love for
being loved.
I write because I love language.
I write because words make the world spin.
I write because I hate white space.
I write in black and white because my sons are partly
