I write because it frees up my mind.
I am one of those who has always been able to communicate better in writing than orally – of course this is with everyone else excluding my few closest people.
I usually observe a lot of what’s happening around me.. this gets me thinking. Writing about my thoughts helps me get another person’s view of what I think… I have always found this refreshing.
I have always found writing to be a way of venting out my feelings..Both good and bad. This helps me be at peace with myself. It’s like all extra thoughts are thrown out and only the rest stay.
I guess being an avid reader since childhood also created the urge to write somewhere. At various points in time I have tried maintaining a journal, entering writing competitions in school and such.. All this ended abruptly when I started graduation and work subsequently. After a long break, now I seem to have found my liking again through blogging.
There are times when I miss the old way of writing..the feel of a pen in your hand… how the ink flows as your thoughts come out on paper.. but then, maybe the e-media is better…atleast it doesn’t fade out, right.
Over the years, writing has become a part of who I am..atleast now that I have restarted after so long I want to write as much as possible for a long time to come 🙂
