A Pursuit for Writing


A Pursuit for Writing

By Bryan Ricardo Marini Quintana


Why do I write?

Perhaps to forget

Perhaps to remember

Why do I write?

Like Odin fears losing Huginn and Muninn

Likewise I dread forgetting Thought and Memory

Why do I write?

Maybe to forget my reality

Maybe to preserve my dream

Why do I write?

Either to preserve Myself

Or to preserve Culture

Why do I write?

Either to bloat with my ego

To not be forgotten

For my figure to be remembered

Or to shrink with my humility

To be forgotten

For my art to be remembered

Why do I write?

To allow an audience to experience my art

To allow an audience to criticize my art

Why do I write?

To find my story

To aid others find their story

Why do I write?

For my figure to be forgotten

For my art to be remembered

Why do I write?

To unchain art from my binds

Freeing creation from my confines

Allowing imagination to transcend from my grasps


Angelica Kauffman, The Artist in the Character of Design Listening to the Inspiration of Poetry, 1782
