    I used to blog, write poetry,

    short stories, started a novel even. That feels like a dream, not a memory. I can't do it anymore. I lost my ability, my spark. It's like that part of me died, er, I killed it. maybe I did. I survived but I am not whole.

    I Need To Prioritize

    I hardly write anymore...I make many excuses, no time with family, work, etc., but really it's because I don't make the time. Honestly, I easily can make time to write if I make it a priority without neglecting any of my responsibilities. When I do write, it's calming to me...

    I don't write nearly enough anymore, but being on EP has helped me tremendously in that regard. By writing to people, writing experiences, stories and blogs.

    and I need to write them all down, but I don't know why my hands won't move the pen. It's very weird. Like I don't know how to start, or how to organise all the thoughts in my head. :/

    I used to write so much before.

    Every day, journal entries, stories, experiences. These days I mostly write essays, but over the past year I got several stories jotted down for the sake of my sanity. These stories were mainly written in states of anger and sadness as a way of coping. I remember my style...

    Day And Night.

    I wished I could write day and night and that I didn't have to stop for anything. I write almost everyday, but usually only for a few minutes. I need writing in my life, and I need it all the time. Except when I am reading or watching a movie or show that will help me write...
