Looking Back...

I remember when I first learned to write. It made me feel so grown up. There was so much freedom I had in expression that I could never get out by talking. I'd even write my feelings down for my mom when I had problems. I always enjoyed writing stories for writing assignments(research paper not so much) but I'd be too embarrassed to read them out loud. I'm not the best speaker, although I'd like to think my speaking skills have gotten a little better. I'm only comfortable having conversations with one, maybe two people at a time, and even then I have trouble breaking the ice. As for speaking in front of large groups, it feels like I'm having a nervous breakdown. With writing, I don't stutter, I can't mumble or speak too loud, and if there's a mistake I can go back and fix it. I can express myself perfectly without fear, because I know I can get my point across. Even if people don't agree with my opinions, as long as people understand what I'm trying too say, and so far its only through writing that I can really accomplish this without making a fool out of myself in the process.

I can relate to that. Its easyer for me to write whut i feel or thinking. It comes out so much easyer. Good job

I agree. Listening to music and writing go hand in hand. Its so easy to get lost in my train of thought. To bad I can't find any of my CDs. Plus the sound on my computer doesn't work.

same here! I feel like massive weight being lifted off when I write esp. when I listen to music and write at the same time. I can write for days.

So can I!
