    I Write

     I write to let out all the things that are bothering me. And when I read about the things I write, it doesn't seem that confusing anymore and I can make sense, if not understand it. Also, writing is very liberating.

    I Write Because

    I write for the catharsis of writing.  The feeling that what has been bothering me is no longer weighing on my heart adn is encapsulated within the page is reason enough for me ot write.  I also have a great love for the art of writing, reading a well written narrative...

    Nonjudgemental

    I write because, unlike people, my journal is utterly unjudgemental.  Unlike people, my journal will never tell me I'm being stupid.  It will never tell me to shut up whining, or that other folks have it way worse than me.  It will never storm off in a huff and...

    I Am Me

    Writing gives me the opportunity to drop all of the masks and cloaks and everything that I've been carrying around with me the entire life. Writing is just me and a piece of paper or me and a computer screen channeling my emotions through a pen or a keyboard. When I write I can...

    Writing excersizes my cognitive, gives me a chance to really say what I feel or how I think or my views or a opinions as compared to talking doesn't for me. I have a hard time expressing myself through speech and I actually don't speak correctly. That could all be in my head, but...

    I Write So I Can Breath

    I know that probably sounds stupid and that it most likely doesn't make any sense, but that doesn't matter, I write so I can breath. There are so many things going on in my head: so many thoughts, emotions, memories, voices, that sometimes i just feel like i can't breath, so I...

    Why I Write

    I write because it sets me free. When I was in the second grade, my teacher who later moved up and became my 6Th, 7Th, and 8Th grade teacher introduced me to it. She made it so fun and so imaginative, like I could do anything with words if I put my mind to it. I began having...

    To Make Sense Of My Chaotic Mind

    I'm serious.  I am probably one of the most random people that one could ever meet.  You wouldn't know it, though, if you were to meet me, as I'm usually that quiet, anti-social girl sitting apart from a small group. So I write in order to try and analyze exactly why I...

    For Therapy!

    I am bipolar with manic depression thrown in for good measure. The only postitive aspect is that I'm very creative, so writing is my outlet for all the manic that goes on in my head. But the downside is that if I'm not being creative, I get very destructive...so I try to keep...

    It Is a Gift...

    I write because it is part of who and what I am here for, during this lifetime.  It is our responsibility to allow ourselves to be a "voice" for those who cannot or will not speak for themselves.  Did you ever wonder why an idea pops into your mind and will...

    Why I Write

    When I write, I’m at home with myself.  Sometimes when I’m out in the world going through the motions of living, I feel like I’m schizophrenic, like I’m multiple people or that I need to be, to please those around me.  When I write, It’s...

    I'm A Slave.

    Why do I write? Honestly, I simply can't stop. I get this scene in my head, a dark knight off on his stallion to murder his brother. BOOM! Right there, it sparks my fingers to scribble down theses words of perfection. It's like my mind has a mind of it's own, it sees what it...

    It Frees My Soul

    I write because I love the writing, because I feel well, one, two, three, several words, poems, phrases and texts. I need words that can help me to find the space between my thoughts and feelings. It transports me to my world of imagination and dreams...dreams that come from my...
