    How does writing make you feel?

    I write poems all the time about family or about how i am feeling. When I am writing about a family member i think of their character and make it funny. If I'm sad I'll sit down and just write and look back on it later. It's a good way of off loading emotion.

    if writing is put upon you as an assignment, it can be one of the worst things that can happen.  akin to taking piano lessons if you REALLY don't want them.  conversely -- if writing flows as tho a song from your lips or the strings of a guitar, then it's a wonderful thing.  like all things in life, there is NOTHING that is other than 50/50.  there is no ALL GOOD and there is nothing that is ALL BAD.

    Like the alleviation of holding your breath underwater and finally coming to the surface; writing is my art form.  I feel like I'm in a valley of aromatic flowers, being embraced by the love that I'd lost instead of the love I currently have.  Only more orgasmic is an orgasm itself than being able to say what I need to say, say what I want to say and express myself without the fear of being judged.  Those who'd judge my writing have no right to read it.  I write to perforate my emotion and escape the cruel, crushing reality that is my daily routine of mediocrity; surrounded by ignorance and a plethora of vomit stains that superficially live out their lives. 
    Writing makes me become whoever I want just as reading makes me become the character I'm reading about. 
    Writing is my art form, and I will do it whether it is appreciated by others or not.

    Writing makes me feel free, focused and blissful.  It is my escape from reality, while also my touchstone to overcoming what sometimes feels like too much reality.  It can be everything from a trusted confidant to a jealous lover.  My writing both feeds me and at times destroys me when I "fail" to achieve what I hope for in it.  Overall, writing frees and nourishes my soul.

    Writing is the most relieving, self-redeeming, and mind-releasing freedom for me.  It gives me the opportunity to let out emotions that I otherwise may have held inside to keep from hurting others or myself.  Sometimes, my writings are things that I've wanted to say but had no one to say them to.  There's always a reason to write, if only there was always TIME.  I have 4 children and a wonderful husband.  My husband supports my writing and loves that I spend time doing so.  I can't tell you how inspiring that it for me.  I'm inspired by so many things, like you, especially by family members.  The feelings, emotions, I feel that day seem to come out in my writings.  I, too, write poetry and love to escape within it.  Writing is the greatest escape from reality aside from alcoholism or drug use... Writing is my  personal heroine.  I love it.. it's my addiction.  If that's wrong, I don't wanna be right! wink  You're right on the mark when you talk about "emotional writing"... you just keep writing!

    Well usually my hand gets pretty sore, especially if I'm going old fashioned with pencil and paper. Man, those were the days huh. But to be quite honest, writing is not so much a stress reliever for me as it is a conduit of my thoughts and energy. While it seems like putting these on paper would aid in clearing the mind, when I sit down to write, a thousand more thoughts and tangents flood my head. Every thought has only one exit point and they're all trying to break free. It's like the pen becomes a lightening rod and I have to guide the storm. It's exhilarating and frightening and strange all at the same time...and I love it.

    i feel alive, free and young.  I feel like I am giving birth to a human, male or female, helping this new born to grow into the man or woman i want him/her to be.  to take and make a complete tale of some one's life from an over heard comment is a heady feeling.  The supposes and the could bes are infinatly endlessly invigorating.

    Writing makes me feel alive. When I am stuck with ideas, one of the method which I do is I read other hubs such as this wonderful question and answers, where I feel having the same common feelings as the others, which gives back our energy, stamina and inspiration to write whatever that is in your mind. Having the same kind of hobbies regardless of the reason, writing is a therapy for me to keep us alive and communicate and share each others feelings and experiences through writing and reading other hubs in this borderless global internet community.

    I simply must write. Ideas and characters in my over-active imagination plead with me to let them live. I must give them bodies and a voice and set them down on earth, planet, dimension or dream and let their stories be told or part of me feels like it will die.

    Writing is my breath, my food, my reason.

    I like writing because i can say anything i want . . . even if in some cases it will get me some sh*t from someone.
    What's even better is knowing someone has READ my writing!

    I'm with Alladream74 and just about everyone else here... Writing makes me feel empowered and stronger than my physical self. I, too, as several have said, feel part of the world and more alive. I especially like being able to see the scores showing that people ARE definitely reading what I write. :-) That makes me happy. No matter what else is going on, I know that writing things down helps me focus and regenerate--even if it's simply writing a shopping list.
