Why write?

I love what Erica Funkhouser says in an interview published in the Boston Globe: “I think I don’t really know who I am, or what I think, or what I believe unless I’m in the process of writing. That’s where all of my discovery takes place, that’s where all of my confrontation takes place — I would say not just with my own interior life but with the exterior life, the rest of the world. I wouldn’t know what I thought, or who I was, or what I cared about, or what was going on in my imagination if I weren’t writing. That’s how I find out.”
