Interview with Will Bontrager

Published 2020-03-08.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
There are things in my head that I must let out. The way I do that is to write.

You see, I've been around a while. Many, especially younger people, would look at me and see an old man.

Well, this old man's brain got full.

There's no more room. Some of it must be let out so new things can be stuffed in.

My joy of writing is two-fold:

1. The loss of pressure from what was an overstuffed brain.

2. An ecstasy when learning new things.

Learning new things was my key reason for leaving the Amish family where I was raised in order to make my way in the non-Amish world.

Learning has always been a joy. Until not long ago, when my brain got full. Overstuffed full.

Writing is my means to bring the joy back. Lots and lots of writing.
