Most people always wonder why I take my time to do something archaic and out dated like writing. They see writing as a waste of time, something left to people who do English and Literature.
PSA! One, I am an English and literature major and two, I am a writer.
Okay, so you may be wondering what type of writing I am talking about. Well I am talking about thew good old form of writing, the one where you take a pen and a paper and pour your emotions out.
Sounds like something hard? yeah. right.
It’s hard because most people prefer to bottle up their emotions.
With the invention of modern technological ways of writing like typing which makes work easier, writing your thoughts on a paper can become something tedious for most of us.
Personally for me,
I knew I was gifted child when it came to languages especially English when I was around 7. My interest in books was so great that by the age of 10, I had read so many books that I couldn’t remember some. Funny huh? Not really. It happens.
Anyway, fast forward into adulthood, I came to appreciate the beauty of writing.
Writing is the only form of art that keeps me sane. That exhilaration that comes from seating in front of your computer and being able to literally BLEED is totally awesome.
Most writers can relate.
Through writing, I find a voice. I am able to speak about things I normally can’t say out loud.
Writing helps me be myself. It helps me embrace my true inner self.
Through my stories, I travel all over the world.
Yes, my mind is a place full of ideas.
Writing gives me a way of expressing my emotions without coming out as needy or attention seeking in this world full of egocentric assholes.
Whenever I feel sad, I find it easy to grab a book and create a character that’s undergoing a situation similar to mine than calling a friend and talking about it.
Yeah. I know. I know. Most of the times we need friends but then again, the people we need the most are ourselves.
I can go on and on ranting about why I choose to write but all I can say is writing is the only way we can show our true selves without letting our guard down.
I mean, nobody likes heartbreaks right?
