I Express Myself Through Writing

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 27,827 People

    Most of the time, I find it humiliating to

    verbalize my thoughts, since they are intellectual or have to do with inquiry of a person, event or idea, so i write on paper and computer. Writing gives me a chance to put out all of my ideas, since I find it hard to actually talk about my ideologues to people in my life...

    For the past few days I've been thinking,

    writing IS the best form of expressing yourself no matter who you are! You can put all of your thoughts in your writing without fear and it clears your mind! It helps you go through tough times and helps you relax in a moments notice! I've used writing for years and for one...

    Anticipating to smell the scent of your skin.

    ....So close that your heart will not be able to differentiate between a soft kiss and my freedom to exert my olfaction all over you.

    I Like My Work.

    Someone asked me what I do for a living. The following is a letter I wrote telling him a little about my work history. He told me it is a  great story and would make a good movie. I laughed and said that it would gross fifteen cents at the box office. I said I could prove it. I...

    I think there have been two different

    approaches, throughout human history, to the unknowable. Two different perspectives concerning the things of life we don't have an answer for, the mysteries we simply cannot solve. The two approaches are as so; Modern man is frustrated with the unknowable. Ancient man was...

    I am the jailed and the jailer.

    These walls were built with my own two hands. They're calloused and cut but they are a part of me; Each gnarled splinter of bark a peice of the tree. With heavy fists and a light heart you came knocking, Shattering the bricks made from my ribs. Freeing me and hurting me is one...

    JK Rowling once said

    that writing was essential for hermental health. I agree with this as writing is something I love. It doesn't matter what it is about, personal experiences, thoughts, opinions or just the need to get my inner feelings down in words, I feel it's an essential part of my well being...

    Her tongue flicked across the temptationplaced

    so desirably before her.Luscious sensation flooded her sensesand created a ravenous thirst for more.She craved, needed. Hungered for more..To feed her, fill her up, satiate her fully.

    “I have forced myself to begin writing

    when I’ve been utterly exhausted, when I’ve felt my soul as thin as a playing card, when nothing has seemed worth enduring for another five minutes… and somehow the activity of writing changes everything.”

    My Forgotten Passion

    I had lost it somewhere, between here and there.  The words no longer came like they once had. Maybe I was lacking the passions I once had. I missed writing and the passion it brought out in me for my love, my life, and my existence. My whole existence numbed and became merely a...

    I wrote the story that features partially in my

    ... At least I try. I am not any good at small
