    I'll spend weeks writing something just to look

    it over again and decide it's awful. When I look back at it years later, I see it's potential and realize it was genius. My criticism is far from constructive. Sadly it hurts my writing more than it helps and writing happens to be one of my favorite hobbies.

    take a literature class which required 18 page papers on a novel Aura and how it pertains to certain philosophies. Now don't get me wrong, I read the novel and really had to dig deep in my "make up big words" side of my brain to fill 18 pages up and cited (MLA of course) but I...

    I write songs as a form of escape.

    I've been dealing with a lot lately, ranging from family issues to moving to a new state and much more. But I've been dealing with the craziest writers block. Could it be stress? I've been struggling to articulate my thoughts on paper and it's driving me crazy!😤😕

    There was a time where I felt like writing came

    to me at an ease. I had short stories published, and essays used as samples in test booklets. Then I fell into a "depressed" state, and set down the pen. I stopped writing for a while, even though it had been a comfort and passion of mine. I abandoned it. I have picked up...
