I love these writer’s explanations about why they write.
I love to put a good quality pen to an intoxicating scented paper, in a thick notebook. Or, open up a blank page, colour it up, or give it an inspiring background and get tapping away.
Through my endless words I work through my dreams, fears, elation and they are between just me and the page. I can tell it anything and it will keep my deepest and darkest secrets safe. There’s no need to feel embarrassed, or guilty. The page does not judge. No need to try to find the right words… this is a place of no censure… a place of quite literally freedom of writing.
Finally, when the words and emotions have been poured on to the page, they can be destroyed; so as not to offend an unintended reader. A bonfire with your words completes the exorcism.
But, how about you? What compels you to write and what do you write?
- Do you keep a diary?
- Or do you write to exorcise your internal demons.
Thanks for dropping by and have a great day… writing.
Until the next time.
