Why do I blog? To note down ideas/websites/thoughts as much for myself as to share them for other people; as a form of discipline but mostly as a way of being part of a community of other writers I admire - there's a certain energy, enthusiasm, humour, openness about blogging writers for the act of writing that has nothing to do with publishing contracts, W H Smith placements or bestselling lists and I value that. I could just read them, I suppose, but I like taking part in it all too. John Baker has been asking bloggers just that question. Worth a look.
And my writing prompt today is ... the question why.
