I Write Compulsively

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 79 People

    All My Life...

    I've written all of my life;  Loving the images that float through my mind as I write and read.  Loving the texture that the words add to the image that paint, ink, canvas, paper, or anything can't do.  I've always wanted to be a writer, but I can never stay...

    Writing Compulsively

    Sometimes you have to find it. You're not sure if it's in there then slowly it trickles out, oozing forth and consuming like a growing wet spot that suddenly tickles your rear end. Sometimes you have to bargain and coax it out of you to sit there and make it happen. No excuses...

    Notebooks Filled With Thoughts

    Ever since I wa 13 I have written down my thoughts on notebooks and in them. Some are little descriptions I like while others are stories. Whenever I have an idea that pops in my head I jote it down. I must have nearly 30 note books not all of them filled but almost half are.

    I love to write. I keep a journal and I write everyday. It's a great stress reliever and paper doesn't judge you. It always listens and is always there.
