I think there are many meanings when someone says they’re a writer. There are many different ways that a person can be a writer. It means something just a bit different to everyone.
For me, being a writer means I have an easier time fleshing out details and my feelings when I’m writing them. Talking has never really worked out well for me. I find that my words get mixed up, or I forget the right words to use. I end up struggling and often sounding uncertain or unprepared. Sometimes I come off as if I’m clueless about whatever the topic is. It can be very frustrating.
When I’m writing though, that issue isn’t there. The words just seem to flow out smoother and make more sense. I don’t have to put as much thought into it, as if the feelings travel down my arms and connect with the keyboard. It’s as if the keyboard has been waiting for me to touch it, so that I may get the rolling thoughts out.
It all sounds a bit crazy, I’m sure. But when it comes to me, this is my brand of crazy. I’m okay with it. After all, there has to be at least one other person in the world who feels the same way as I do when it comes to this. There are over 7 billion people in the world, there is no way I’m all alone.
Now, if you think of this as like a bit of a random post I don’t blame you. It’s been more than a while since my last blog post. In my life things have been… evolving for the lack of a better word. I have a senior dog, named Sammy, who turned 13 earlier this year. Over the last month or so he’s been slowing down a bit. Needless to say, I’m not taking it so well. He’s been my life for over ten years, and I think of him as my oldest child. I’m struggling a bit with the idea that my puppy is getting old. Writing seems to be a great therapeutic relief for me.
Is there something you do when you just have to get the rolling thoughts and worries out of your head? Writing in a journal? Unleashing in a blog? Maybe spilling your guts in a vlog?
Thanks for listening guys, you’re all awesome.
