Writing makes it all better (IWSG)


I think I’m a magnet for all kinds of negativity. No matter how positive I try to be, bad things still happen. I think that’s just life. One can’t have things your own way all the time. But, one thing I have noticed is that writing is always there for me. When it feels like my heart is being ripped apart, I can channel it into my writing. Writing is my safe place. It is my home. Even if I write one word for the whole day, which is what I’ve been doing the past few weeks, I feel better for writing that one word instead of not writing at all.

Yes, I suffer from depression. Yes, I’m a pessimist. But writing balances me out. Writing makes everything better even when I think my writing is a form of torture sometimes. Writing enriches my life. I can’t imagine not writing.

How about you?

The Insecure Writers Support Group was created by the talented Mr. Alex J. Cavanaugh so that writers can share their insecurities and/or encourage others who need support with their own. You can visit Alex Here, or if you want to join us in discussing our insecurities on the first Wednesday of each month, you are welcome to join by going Here.
