Writing: A Habit I Cultivated In Dark Moments And What It Means To Me
I have stated in previous times that I developed my writing habits due to the early unfortunate emotional crises I've been through. I started the act of writing through diary keeping. This was because I couldn't trust anyone to keep my secrets so I communed with my journal as though it was a human and the feeling was quite relieving.
Writing is my best form of self expression. The things I ever want to say are better penned down than voiced out because letting everything out as they are in my head is never Justice enough.
Writing is a form of self improvement to me as well. I'm an English student so I do a lot of letters and review writing. Through Hive, with all the writing contests and personally drafted posts of mine, I see myself improving daily. Unlike in the past where I was usually afraid of writing, it's not so anymore. I see writing as a big part of my life, something I can't run from, something that's mandatory for me to do.
Writing to me is a hobby, it's something I do for fun. I sit down and write fictional stories, poems and whatever it is I feel like at the moment. I hear a line of something that makes sense to me and decide to build on it and feel fulfilled and happy when I do this.
Writing is a means of communication and criteria for understanding me as a person. I read somewhere that a book is a window to a writer's mind. I'll put it that my writing is an avenue for people to get to know me better. That's because the things I put down are what I think, how I feel and my stance on certain issues.
Ever heard of Wordgasm? The thrill and pleasure one feels upon reading a new piece of writing or having a new and amazing writing idea. I love words and we can't talk about writing without words. As a matter of fact, words of affirmation is one of my love languages and this is why writing means a lot to me. I like to put down what I think and feel and I like it when people write to me about how I make them feel as well.
In conclusion, I'll summarily say that writing for me is a passion, a hobby, a means of self improvement and expression, a habit I never want to put a stop to. Writing is everything to me.
