As a writer, nothing quite compares to ‘getting in the flow’ and just writing.
Sounds obvious? Well, maybe.
I mean, there are different forms of writing aren’t there? Novels and novellas, short stories, poetry, limericks and even writing in a journal.
They’re all expressing yourself through writing, even a gratitude journal which is a great form of (cheap!) therapy by the way!
For many people, including me, writing is a way to sort out my headspace, to sift through the million and one thoughts, ideas, concerns whirring through my mind.
Sometimes what translates from my head to paper/screen might be nonsense. But that’s okay. Because it’s my nonsense!
It’s like my writing tool is my chance to defrag, just like a computer.
As a rule, I prefer to write, actually write with a pen. Sometimes a pencil. Rarely do I sit and type.
On my blog you won’t find much raw material. It’s usually been edited, polished, fine-tuned. Why? Because that’s my perfectionist side. For me, the writing has to flow by using punctuation and the correct rhythm for the stanzas for a poem. I really should be a proofreader because it takes a few criticial eyes over my work before I’m ready to publish.
So, why do I write?
For my readers…
For my never-resting creative brain!…
I hope you enjoy my writing here on my blog.
Now, over to you!…
