I write because it helps me channel my thoughts and fine tune the messy jumble that they are in my head, into something more refined and worthy of writing down. For today’s post, I’m going ahead and sticking to my “shitty first draft” because that is the essence of my authentic self.
I write because I want to connect to other people in a way I’m more comfortable with, where I don’t have to worry about my social awkwardness or anxiety, I can just be myself and show my personality with my words.
I write because I want to create something new and write about things that can spark a discussion. I want to write about meaningless things that can be funny or completely out of the blue.
I write because it makes me happy. It’s a way I can express myself, no matter what mood I’m in. If I’m angry I’ll do angry writing. If I’m sad, I’ll write sad writing. Same thing goes for happiness writing too.
I write because it’s a part of who I am and maybe, just maybe, I bleed ink underneath my paper skin.
Hi everyone! Here is my first post for Writing 101, just a short drabble to get the juices flowing. I hope I can stick to this course until the end! Thanks for reading 🙂
