The Highest Form of expression.

i write. when im sad, happy, confused, angry..

any emotion can be expressed through writing.

i write blogs, diary entries, stories, song lyrics...

it is the best way for me to get everything out.

i write best during random flashes of inspiration.

i'm not sure if i'm the only one who gets these flashes.. if you get them too, please comment and let me know!

sometimes it'll be when i'm watching tv, or in the shower, or most commonly when i'm in bed. when i'm trying to get to sleep, or have woken up in the middle of the night. if often (but not always) happens when i am in a state of heightened emotion, be it anger, fear, happiness, or sadness.

random song lyrics or story ideas just come to mind, and demand to be written. i quickly learnt that if they werent written down rather quickly they'd later be forgotten.

when i get these flashes.. they cant be ignored.. and i like to think i can write rather well during these inspirational moments.

..then there are times like these, when i just sit and write. stream of consciousness style. and begin to question whether what i'm writing even makes any sense.

but for the most part.. it doesnt matter.

because i write for me. i dont write to put it on display for the world, i write simply to express my own emotions. my blog was set to private. no-one has ever seen my songs. it will probably stay that way.

i find any form of writing to be an amazing outlet.

CestMoiLauren: Glad to see you also have random flashes of inspiration. It's amazing, isn't it? But yeah, I tend to write my best during those flashes, or when, as you said, I just feel like it.

I think it's amazing you've written two novels.. Well done! I've always wanted to write a novel.. Perhaps I will someday!

And yes, 'free writing' is pretty cool. Hard for me to do on paper though, cuz my thoughts move way faster than my hand ever could.

Good luck with your novels!

thats really cool! I do it too actually. I love writing and like you, do it after random flashes of inspiration or whenever I just "feel like it". I tend to post some of my things and I do have 2 novels waiting to be put through the ever so excruciating editing process by a real editor.



As for the streams of consciousness...free writing.

I LOVE FREE WRITING! It isnt supposed to make sense at all. You dont have to worry about spelling or punctuation and nothing has to have an order, you just write what comes into your head. I love it!!
