There really doesn’t need to be a reason to write, as Nike says, ‘Just do it!’
Even when inspiration is yet to strike you can still start writing. Just let it flow and see what happens. Once you are writing you’ll often be surprised by what starts to flow from your brain to the pen or the keyboard.
Now why don’t you start your entry into Umoja Writing Competition 2015. You only have to write 1,000 words with the theme CHILD. Everyone must have a story in them about CHILD. If you’re a school child you’ll be young enough to write about how you felt as a child. If you’re older you can draw on your love of a child you know or met. You can write fiction, essay or travel article, so there’s plenty of scope for all sorts of writers.
So what have you got to lose? Nothing and the orphanage has plenty to gain by your entry. Thanks you.
