How does your writing make you feel?

    When I write I vent, I re-group and I feel calmer. But mostly it helps me realise how I truly feel about things. Turning it into the written word makes my thoughts less muddled and more coherent. Well at least to me!!!!!!

      I definately vent. No doubt about it.

    I often find that I tend to express myself better in written form. How I feel about changes from time to time.

    Sometimes, it's burdensome and glad when that particular one is done and published.

    Other times, it feels really good because I might be writing about something that could really help others.

    And yet other times, it's fun.

    It just depends on what else is happening in my life.

      We have the same thought.

    Depending on what I'm writing, I can get different reactions. If I'm writing about an event that happened to me, then I tend to express myself and get all my feelings out. I totally feel calmer and less stressed. If I'm writing fiction, getting a good idea for a story can really make my day. I automatically get happier and things get to me less.

    However, it's also a double-edged sword. If I'm having a hard time coming up with something (writer's block, anyone?) then I'll be down in the dumps. If I can't come up with a decent idea or my mind is too muddled, then my day is shot.

    When I write I start to see clearly. I am an introvert so it is easier for me to express myself that way rather than talk. If I come across a subject that is fascinating to me, I tend to get so immersed in it, I feel almost as if I am on fire and burning with desire to create and then share my thoughts.

    Writing for me is like going for a walk instant of driving the car. You notice more of your surrounding.
