When asked why I write...

I have honestly no clue as to why I write...I never have. I've always been a language child, and I guess that's because words have fascinated me. The moment you put them together, they can become beautiful like two people in love. When two lovers get together, they make a baby, and that's like my words and I. Writing is just a way to release my thoughts to see if anyone thinks the same way that I do, although what I think is never expressed in my writing. I can write better than I can speak, which is fairly ironic and backwards, wouldn't one think? But it's true...when I speak, it's like I'm tongue-tied nearly all of the time, but when I write, someone else takes over for me, and before I know it, I have a beautiful product before me. I used to actually watch TV and write at the same time. I would have pages of stories when I was really young, and I would stop doing them because they didn't seem worth it any more, but when I showed my mom, she wanted to keep reading. I can't control it, but it's just who I am. My favourite saying (of my own making) these days is, "I draw through words." I suck at drawing with a pencil and paper, and a lot of my friends are skilled artists. I used to envy them, but I draw through words. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but my words are worth pretty much. My words can make you feel like you are inside of the picture instead of just looking in, and I love being able to transport my reader when they would rather be anywhere but where they are. Giving them something to feel, without knowing what they're feeling. I guess that's why I write.

Hi there, friends...newest update, after months...I'm sorry I haven't been on in forever.  Really.  Forever.  I've been busy, and naturally am about to become more so.  I'll be on more, though, to avoid the pile-up of awesome notifications.  Feeling blah atm, but I guess I'm in that stage of authorhood.  At this time, I am going to be (at least) pushing pause on the collabs that I'm participating in, because it's just too much right now to be taking on.  Thank you for letting me join you. In other news, I'm planning on making an e-zine by writers for writers, and if you wish to contribute or if you would like some more information, feel free to message me!  As usual, I love you all so much.  You've always been supportive and awesome :)  Talk to you soon...
