    Writing It All Out.

    Often my head just gets so full of things, I feel that the only way I can make sense of it all is to write. It's like therapy without the bill at the end of the session. It's very much my way of coping. It leads to freedom and allows me to view the minds clutter from a...

    I Believe This Helps

    I have written a lot of stories here lately. Also gotten a little sassy chatting here and there. They say if you want to write, do it every day. I always found that difficult. But only needing to write short pieces of my own choosing has motivated me. I really believe that...

    Using My Words To Touch Other's.

    Sometimes I sit down to write and just want to get a whole lot of jumbled thoughts out of my head. When I write like that I'm doing it souly for own sanity. Other times however I want to connect with other people. I want to take a memory, an emotion a reflection and see if other...

    I Love To Write

    And it started because I first liked to read. Then, I'd get books confiscated in school (for reading too much), and so I'd whip out some sheets of notebook paper, turn my imagination loose, and write about the adventure in my head. Then, if my story got confiscated, I'd read...

    Writing Away

    I'm always trying to improve my creative writing. Also, the technical side. I never got great marks in grammar but I try to learn from my mistakes as I figure them out.

    Unforgettable Memory

    Writing About What Matters

    I sometimes wonder where I would be without the freedom  to write. For me it's a way of clarifying my fleeting thoughts and emotions. It's a way of grabbing hold of fragments of time. It's a chance to say,'This was important to me.' As I get older I find time moves so quickly...

    A Class Is In My Future...

    It's my goal to find a creative writing class this summer or fall. I love writing, but find I am stifled a bit in my vocabulary and creative ideas. I think being around like-minded people will help set a fire under me and make me want to write again.
