Why I Write Fiction by Sarah Davis
I am delighted to welcome bestselling author, Sarah Davis, back to my blog to talk about why she writes fiction. Thank you for your time and incite Sarah.
Once upon a time, a young girl lived near the Badlands, blissfully unaware of the challenges of adulthood. She read books about toads and frogs, told stories about princesses and horses, played with her dogs and cats, and dreamed of growing up and traveling to wondrous and distant lands. Because of this, as she grew older, she studied hard and worked harder.
Because of this, she learned many things and made money. Because of this, she traveled to distant lands and took on more work. Through it all, she made mistakes, won and lost, loved fiercely and laughed without restraint, suffered heartaches and heartbreaks, and grew into the person she is today. No one label can encompass her. She is everything to some, nothing to others. She is simply herself. And that is enough.
It’s hard to say one reason I write. There are many stories in my head that refuse to leave me alone. I have always been excited to create things, to draw or paint or quilt. Now, I continue that creating, only I draw, paint, and quilt with words.
I have a lot of hobbies. My husband once said, “Sarah, you can do anything, I just don’t think you can try everything.” Although he is right, I still tried my hand at many things. When I started writing my debut novel, Inside Voices, it was like the floodgates opened and all these stories that were patiently waiting for their chance could at last reveal themselves. And now they won’t leave me alone. Perhaps you could say the voices in my head are making me write.
Why does anyone do anything? Essentially, I write because I want to and because I can. It brings me joy. Writing also brings challenges and frustration, but then again, so does life. I’ll write until there aren’t any stories left in my head.
My debut novel, Inside Voices, is available on Amazon. It is a survival story of a young woman with PTSD studying polar bears. I would be so happy if you gave it a chance.
