I'm interested in the answers I might hear to this question. I write because sometimes something wells up inside of me, wanting out, wanting a voice, wanting acknowledgement, and writing is one of the ways I've found to let it out.

Of course! I love the way you write and have since I joined HubPages. You should pursue it further. You were one of the first writers I started following. And I agree about things not lost and forgotten. Thank you for answering.
I like that answer, but who knows this is as close? "In a New York Minute, Everythng Can Change." I'm off to read one your hubs. Thank you for answering.
Perfect answer. And you're the first who's mentioned insomnia. I think if I could sleep like a normal human being, I would likely not write. And like you, the outlet for the creative urge is so important. Thank you, Denise.
I know the insomnia experience very well. Some doodle, some watch the boob tube, some do crosswords-I write. Or, I write about what I'm going to write about, haha.
Good to hear that quote; it's been a while. I think it does help us define ourselves and perhaps even discover new parts of ourselves. I like the answer and I thank you for answering!
Although it makes me sad to hear that your MS is interfering with your writing, I admire your perseverence. I have always enjoyed your poetry and hope to benefit from reading as you "get it
all out." Wishing you many blessings.
I think calm happy life might have to be sacrificed. I think of the "flow" that you're talking about as a kind of channeling. You're lucky if it happens often. Thank you for answering!
channeling-- I've heard this before, wonder what other people think of this feeling-- for me there is a total difference between writing a considered essay and writing a stream of consciousness essay. Both are good, but I know which is more fun!
I'm glad you can relate to my "welling up" feeling. And like Freddy, I'm sure you should not stop dreaming. And I understand conflicting thought. Mine's my Methodist indoctrination batlling with my own intrinsic beliefs.
