    Whenever

    I write when I am happy, sad, depressed, excited, loved, hated, and let's face it I write no matter what the mood.  I love to write every day as it is therapy for my soul.

    Mental Health

    I'm far too quiet and spend far too much time in my head.  Writing helps get some of the words out...and getting the words out helps me clarify my feelings.  So yeah, daily writing is a good idea for me to maintain something resembling good mental health.

    my thoughts and feelings. :-)

    It doesn't matter what you write,

    even if it's only your name, the goal is to write something.

    Why Do I Procrastinate?

    It always feels good to write and yet I put it off.  Something ALWAYS seems to come up, yet it is the singlemost important thing I need to do in order to foster creativitity within myself.  It's hard to remember to do it every single day.  I will try to...

    It's Cheaper Than Therapy

    Yeah I have paid therapists a lot of my hard earned dough over the years and they can't hold a candle to how much better I feel just getting these stories out for people to be inspired by. It's crazy how good it feels!

    My roommate says I'm getting addicted to EP

    writing and correspondence. Its probably true, he's good at sorting things out. Maybe I should allot my time and stick to it. Everyone else has texting phones, smartphones but my dad's laptop is all I have. Was the same in HS. No problem, use to it. Don't have much in the way of...

    My head will literally explode

    if I don't. I write what I feel, my day, about my dreams, my relationship and friends. I love to grab a pencil and just write on paper. It's my way to vent without bothering other people.
