I’m to start this writing blog off with a topic of why I write, this is in regards to a month-long process of writing 101 and I hope to read some good stories from others in this same starting group for November. So here it is.
I write because… To be honest, because I don’t know…
May I start with a few years ago, around 6 I do believe, I used to write but only a little. This bizarre and extremely foreign occurence would come to me whilst in an extreme upset mood, yes I’m talking about wallowing in a sheet puddle of tears due to what i believe was a form of depression (that is another story, that might not get told). I would write, yes write, poems to be exact. I wrote poems that only I would see and they would be written about the events that led me to be upset, it would be brief but complete. 10 minutes and I would have one written out with me left thinking “how the hell?” but also with me feeling better like the ink on paper slowly draining from pen was carrying away my sorrows from within and leaving them there on the page.
Fast forwarding to now.
I write (type), currently, to perhaps produce a novel. Whether it becomes published or not I don’t care, I know it will not be good enough and that is ok because practice is all I am after. I write because I don’t want to be apart of the young world filled with mobile phones glued to face and fingers, a personality of a stick and the social skills of a cat (we all know the use humans to get benefits those damn cute little felines). But mostly I write because I know it will improve me as a person, vocabulary, happiness, true friendships not based on a type of blind social status thought up by bad sorts, to tell stories for all to enjoy, the list could go on but i think you understand. I want to improve me, I want to be clear on improve and not change, I’m happy with who I am but I want to be the best me I can be.
For those who have read this, I do thank you for your time and I will be following this month process closely (I hope I can keep up) and by then end I wish to be at least a chapter into my book with the kickstart of my artistic mind to habit a day-to-day writing procedure to incorporate in my life.
Wishing you a good night/day,
