Time For The Why

 


Here today we are going to ask why. I guess that would mean I am going to ask why. Or that would mean I am going to ask why that someone else asked. I guess why is just getting passed along. Why do you have to be so fickle why? Why am I talking to something that will never talk back? Unless Skynet comes into play and then why may talk back. Hmmm that probably still wouldn't work. I guess why is still crap outta luck. If there was such a thing as luck. Why must humans make stuff up? Why aren't I getting on with it yet? I better, huh? But why?

Albert Camus once said, “The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.” Flannery O’Conner said, “I write to discover what I know.” Authors across time and distance have had many reasons to write. Why do you write what you write? 

This one is easy. I write so the aliens will see I can spin a good tale and keep them entertained. Then they will only beam me up and not probe me or disintegrate me. Then they will see they are so good that they will give me ever lasting life and then I will bide my time and then wait for the right moment and then blow them all up. Except for my alien wife and our half alien babies. I'll save them. Then we'll steal a ship and go cruise around space for a few billion years. After that I may write a new book or two and come back to Earth and see if humans came back around again. 

So there you go. That is why I write. Not something is simple as because I have 1000s of stories in my head that want to come out. Nope. Never. It is all to survive the impending alien attack. I've got plenty of tinfoil saved in the closet just in case it backfires though. 

Why do you write? Why do you blog if you don't write? Why wouldn't that count as writing? Why must why ask so many questions? Are you ready for the aliens? Hey. No more make believe than luck. You won't be laughing when you are being probed. What? I'll go write another story now.

Enjoy life, forget the strife.

  4. I enjoy the blogger community, that’s why I write. Plus, I always loved reading and writing in school.

  5. I think the aliens will look at us and keep on moving. I enjoy writing my blog about what I create and movies. You never run out of ideas which is great.

  8. I'm glad you're entertaining the aliens. Perhaps that little diversion will keep them away from our doors a well. Keep up the good work.

  11. Entertaining the aliens is an important reason... I thank you!

  12. That's the best answer yet. Keep them entertained, no one wants probed or disintegrated. I think I write because when I was growing up it was forbidden to express yourself or have an opinion. Now no one can shut me up, not when it comes to my writing.

  13. LOL! Would we expect anything different from you, Pat? Got to keep those aliens entertained ~ being probed would be so unpleasant. I love your new header, and I'm thrilled to see sweet Cassie is not forgotten. I often show Terry your Instagram photos of the Westies. They make us laugh when we really need it. And the twins, who melt our hearts. It's beyond time for the next generation in our family to start producing more babies!!! Be safe, my friend. It's good to know that the Atlantic Bubble is hanging in there.

    1. Bad enough having a finger or light or whatever go up there lol truly probed would suck indeed. Old Cassie girl will always linger indeed. haha well the pups are good for fun and the rugrats are too. I can't comment on that as I have produced any babies yet hahaha behind the curve I guess.

  14. Now we know it is the aliens that is your motive for writing :) I thought it had something to do with the cat :) I like to write just to write. I like to put words down on paper I guess.

  15. That is a great plan. If you entertain aliens with your writing and stay on their good side, then you'll be safe AND get an alien wife and children as well as keep everyone laughing. :)

  16. Hmm, sounds like a Pat Hatt story in the making to me:)

    ReplyDelete
  17. The reason why you write is very convincing. Yes, because, alien, of course :-D

  18. Hey Patt, as always your posts are beaming with positivity and love! I write to let go. For the past few (read a lot of) months, I tried experimenting and 'not writing', to see how things go. Only to realise that, oh, you know, I gotta write to make sure my heart is not getting filled up. I am so glad I found all these beautiful writers here in this blogging world! I am always ready for aliens, if they're like cats and dogs, even more so! I don't think we'd have to fight them or anything, more like they'd treat us as cute dogs or cats. Haha.

    Have a great week ahead!

    1. Guess there is a little love in there lol Yeah, not doing it sure can make one a bit more meh overall and filled with the need to. Cats and dogs and aliens too. Be quite the zoo.

  20. Ten years ago I started R&W as an outlet. I was surprised to learn that there was a community and really enjoyed the interaction. Even made some good friends! I write because it's a great way to release energy. Even as a young child, I would have composition notebooks filled with my rants because I needed to vent and get it out. Regarding your future alien life, why don't you just slap them away? Why? WHY?! :)

    1. Yeah, sure met a whole bunch of people one never knew indeed. Good to get the rants out as well lol the cat understands that. But but slapping isn't very ummm nice hahaha

  21. Thank you for your public service in keeping the aliens entertained so they won't destroy us lowly humans.

  22. My ex-husband was a writer. I think writing picks you, not the other way around. It seems innate, and more of a need, or integral part of who you are than anything else. He'd write on everything too, napkins, little notebooks he carried around, scrap paper, post-its, whatever was close by when he wanted to record his thoughts. It was nice to see the gift. It's nice to know your calling. I think writers do.

    1. Yeah, it does seem to be a part of who you are. I've learned to control it a bit more though. Don't want to spend all of life doing it, need to enjoy real life too.
