To some, writing is something they just do. For others it is something they feel. To me, it is like exercise for my brain and food for my soul.
If I am having a bad day and take time to sit down and write...even if it's just 100 words... I feel better, more focused and almost revived. I've heard people talk about writing 'taking so much out of them'... for me it actually refuels me and makes me feel alive!
I love the excitement of creating something from nothing and then being able to escape into that world.
So, it is not something I just do to pass the time. It is not a silly hobby or a waste of time. It is WHO I AM!
Writing is a part of me just like my hands and feet are a part of me. Sure, I could live without writing ever again... but I would not be the same person I am. I would be an empty being.
Writing gives me joy, it gives me a sense of propose and most of all it is my chance to share a gift with the world.
How about you? What is writing for YOU?
