    So today I got assigned to write about mental

    health and the stigma around mental health. I am really interested in writing a spoken word or poem but I can't even get my brain to a place where I can even start. Any suggestions? I would really appreciate any :)

    I don't really enjoy it

    but I'm good at it. Plus it's a wonderful way to get my thoughts down. Rather I'm angry, sad, mad, happy, or indifferent I can write down how I feel better than I can say it. Verbally telling some one my feels is hard for me and something I need to work on. Sometimes I get...

    Writer With Writer's Anxiety

    Perhaps it's my depression, hopefully when I start some anti-depressants soon, I'll find my voice again. I write a column that I'm very proud of and I get paid for it as well. In the last two years that's as far as I've progressed as a writer. I want to write a book but in...

    Whenever I don't feel like talking

    or can't explain what I'm feeling I like to write because in my journals I can be who I am and express what I'm going through without worrying if what I'm writing makes sense. I can say exactly what I want.

    and excitement of writing. I find that I can really express my emotions through the details of the people I create in my stories. Sometimes, I find it easier to write and speak to people. Anyone else feel the same way?
