I write because I don't have many friends, and feel alone. whenever I write, it makes me feel closer to some divine force or power, and it makes me feel loved. and to have people read my work makes me feel even better. my writing is what kept me alive a few years ago, when I was almost suicidal. Writing allows me to get away from all the sadness and fly off somewhere else on a plane propelled by my words, so I can escape long enough to feel a bit better.
