I have always been a writer. Ever since I learned to hold a pencil and form words, I have loved using words to express myself. I have always loved to read books, also. There are many reasons why writing is so helpful to me. Have you ever thought about a conversation you had and wish you had said this or said that? That is me. When I write, I can keep looking over what I’m saying and edit it to make sure it says exactly what I want to say. I can also make sure I don’t leave anything out.
Through the pages of a book, I can visit places I have never been, experience history, or become a part of someone’s adventure. Through writing I can create my own adventure or fantasy, or share information.
Writing is a solitary journey. I don’t mind being alone. In fact, I enjoy the opportunity to just let my mind soar and explore. I love to daydream. You may not think I’m accomplishing very much, but in reality my mind is creating a story or reviewing knowledge.
