For me when I write I place myself in the position of the person I am writing about. It's as if I feel their happiness or sadness.
Or if it's about nature it's like I am where I am writing
My mother once asked me how I came up with my writings
which some people call poetry but to me they are my intermost feelings.But anyway I told her that once I start writing,they play over and over in my head kind of like a record until I am satisfied with the way they sound.And I joking told her that I write them down and then take the hillbiily out :) ( I'm from Tennesee) which she thought was really funny'
It gives me a satifaction that is hard to explain.Does this sound wierd?:)
