How writing can make you happy
Updated: Nov 5, 2019
Writing helps you to put your thought to paper. It provides a place, a tangible space for you to let yourself go, let your thoughts go, let them fly...
In my Shitty poem, I talk about how writing makes my fingers tingle, till the words fly like an eagle through the landscape of my mind, as it flies by that last thought and, into an epiphany...writing for me feels just like that.
Writing allows you to express pain and stress into a formal release that is wrung out in every word you commit to paper

I used to be ashamed of my thoughts, my life experiences. I would write and erase and write, then erase my words and comments. I used to be ashamed of my thoughts, I used to think that no one cared to read them. I believed that I was just a whisper in a din of voices and so I would erase my contribution for fear of being irrelevant.
I'm not doing that anymore.
