Why I Write: Pam Houston
In this essay Houston talks about the different reasons why she writes. She writes because she loves to she loves language, how the words can fit together. The different ways that the words can rhyme. She also writes because it is her way of escaping the outside world. She writes because she doesn't believe in anything else "I write because i don't believe in truth, in non-fiction, or history, or biography or anyone who says "this is how it really happened."(Houston) I like the way that Pam Houston wrote this, she is saying that she doesn't believe that things can be perfect. She also somewhat believes that some people are wrong about what they write because they wrote or said this is how something happened. Her love of writing really comes out in this text because she writes about how writing really makes her feel like.
