Why Do I write?

Standard

Oh, I love writing and I am short of words to describe how much I love it!!. There’s always a sense of thrill and accomplishment whenever I write.  I love to write because it makes me feel invincible like superman flying high with my words where all the dreams are possible. I love to write because I feel like a mother giving birth to a newborn baby whenever I write/create something new ; the universe cease to exist. And at the same time I feel like this new born baby taking his first deep breath, soaking in the atmosphere knowing he/she’s alive.

Sometimes, writing can be a quest for self-discovery, that’s why I write mainly for myself and for my sense of existence. I love the following quote by Charles Bukowski:

“Writing keeps you alive because it eases the monsters in the brain by moving them to paper”.

Writing helps you eliminate any feelings of sorrow, regret, anger, stress, or guilt. All those bad feelings can be washed away when you start picking up your pen and start writing.  Writing can serve as vehicle for expressing and sharing our experiences with others. You never know who you might affect with your writing; for all you know your writing can light someone’s darkness.

To my readers

Standard

To my readers, I wonder if you’re like me; you sit alone at night fascinated by the darkness, that’s the exact moment where my mind begins to spread its wings like an owl searching for heartbeats and eyes stirring with provocative ideas attractive as an action of flesh that ends in wakefulness. My fingers play beautiful music with my pen.  Writing has helped me to make sense in this fanatic world. There are days when I don’t know what to write, and I have to admit that there is so much to learn about writing. I’m not afraid of criticisms. I’m my own worst critic, trust me. Sometimes there is a thick cloud of confusion swarming around my mind and I can’t find the right words to write. Then negative thoughts will start whispering in my ears things like: “this is not good enough” “this is not the appropriate word” “this is not creative enough, it looks boring”, etc and I just sit staring at a blank with million questions roaming inside my mind on which is the best way to start writing this particular piece? Recently, I come to a conclusion that it is fear that is holding me back; I’m learning to start believing in myself and in my work. My advice for you is to start to give yourself some credit, don’t stop writing (there are no limitations or rules when it comes to writing), and push away all your negative feelings.

Dear readers, I just want you to read me from the pages of your hearts.
