V is for Verily

I love the sound of that word. Verily.  Veh-ruh-leeeeeeee. Oops, sorry, got carried away for a moment there. Won't happen again. I think. At least, not for this post. *crosses and then uncrosses fingers because it is difficult to type*.

Hi.

I'm late with this week's letter.

That's mostly because I had a lot of things to think about and have I mentioned that midterms were going on? I didn't? I thought I did. Oh well. Now you know, even if it is after the fact. Yay for you.

This week's letter is V and I say that V is for verily. Did you know that the definition of verily stands for truly and certainly?

I didn't. I just knew that it sounded really cool and I loved the way it rolled off my tongue. Don't get me wrong, I had a general idea of the word, at least when used in context and I decided it was worth looking up to share the joy with the rest of the world.

Mmmhmm.

Yeah. I was probably kind of frazzled when I was thinking today. Go figure.

Today is actually "Why I write" day sponsored by the National Day on Writing. Did you know that? I didn't either. LOL. That's great, I hate being alone in these sorts of things. So, would thou verily like to know why I write?

I'm sure I've mentioned it a thousand times on this blog, but I can't pass up the official day to do it, so here we go! ^_^

Why do I write? 

Simple. Because I want to.

And that's all there is to it.

If you want the more in-depth answer, then consider this. I only had to write one thing to realize that I really loved writing. One thing. But in writing that one thing, I learned that I couldn't stop there--ever. Writing is not my whole life--believe me, there are a million other things I do and certainly things that I am required to tend to, but in between of all of it, I write. I do it because I want to, because I love to and probably because it's downright fun.  (and there, I used 'because' three times in one sentence. Whew!) My writing is far from coherent and perfect, but I like to think it is somewhere in between and that I am working towards that coherency and perfection. So, tell me. Why do you write?

Oh and of course, my nano plug : Twelve days to NaNoWriMo 2011. What are you waiting for?
