There's a lot of things I like about writing, but what do I like most? I'd have to say how it releases my soul, how putting words on a page in whatever way it comes out frees me of the pain/challenges I'm going through. Writing has become my escape, my best friend even because it is the one way I can be completely me without worrying about what anyone is thinking of me. Even with my real human best friend there is a certain uncertainty I feel about 'truly' opening up, not that I don't trust him but my heart.. my soul just doesn't feel safe with 'people.' Whereas with writing I fear nothing about allowing my emotions/my heart run wild with the words. To fuse words in such a way that it helps me, heals me. And hopefully in the long haul it touches the readers.
That's what I like most about writing, the freedom to be me.
It captures all the thoughts, ideas, images from my mind I need to express and do not want to forget. It gives me freedom to let my emotions wander on the paper and hide them between the lines, so that someone can find them there someday.
What I like most about writing is that it is a powerful medium in which people can truly feel connected to each other. It's through writing about our deepest and darkest moments that we realize that we are not alone. And as a writer, nothing feels better than when a person reads my poem and says, "Wow, I know exactly what you mean."
what I love about writing is that you can live a million lives, see a million new places, you can be anywhere, you can build a whole new world, and before you know it, a blank piece of paper goes from 1D to 3D
I actually thought of this awhile ago, comparing writing to drawing, saying I'd always love writing just a little bit more because, it seemed to me at least, the point of drawing is to depict something exactly as it is, while the point of writing is to describe something as poetically and uniquely as possible. For example, when you draw a tree, it's still a tree, but when you write about a tree, it's up to you how you describe it, which expressions you use and which aspects of it you focus on. You can give it a spirit, a back story, describe things that are hidden, and even talk about how important it is, for example, to one person. You can paint a tree exactly as you, and consequently everyone else sees it, but how a person describes a tree is as unique as the person themselves. Like, how you write about something depends on how you interpret it. If sunrises, snowfalls, animals and other seemingly ordinary things have a special value to you, have meaning for whatever reason, they'll become far more than simply sunrises or snow when you write about them.
