Join us if you blog Challenge~ Brainstorm 10 reasons why you feel the need to write now.
This is a really great prompt. I'm not sure I could come up with 10 reasons why I write. Sometimes I honestly don't know why I need to write I just feel this intense need to put words down on paper or on the computer. Sometimes it doesn't even matter what I'm writing - I just have to write. Sometimes if I don't get the chance to write I feel like I'm going to burst if I don't get my thoughts out in words. Growing up I always loved English class and writing but it was just classes I was taking. As I have grown up and especially since my panic disorder started writing is a release for me. I don't write for other people I write for myself - it is like a release, so comforting to me. When I am feeling depressed or panicky the act of writing makes me feel more in control. It makes the panic less intense. Like I said, writing is just something I have to do - I can't always explain it but I NEED to be able to write.
