I Am A Writer...

You've got this world trapped in your mind that you feel the need to share with the rest of the world.

I Am A Writer...

I have to remind myself that writing doesn't always come to people the way it does for me. I have to remind myself that writing is a skill set a lot of people lack and realize the value in such a talent. From one perspective you just see someone sitting down in a chair or laying down scribbling words down or typing hastily or not so hastily, nonetheless, you see these simple actions. You would assume it doesn't take much effort. However, it does. You see these simple gestures going on outside this person. However, that is just the beginning.

When you're a writer, journalist, blogger, whatever you are, you are more than just a person with words on a laptop or paper you made up. You are those words. You are those stories and blogs you create. You may be a person sitting in a chair or laying down on a bed but your mind is not really there is it? The people around you see this physical form of you but you're not really there, your mind is wherever your writing is. You're in a forest, a city an abandoned house, you're where your writing is. You're anything you want or whatever you want when you're a writer, your story never ends.

The life of a writer is a lot different than the life of an ordinary person. You're constantly writing something in your head, watching ending after ending go down in your mind. Everything you do you, not necessarily overthink, but you break it down and make it into many different possible endings. The life of a writer holds a lot of responsibility. You've got this world trapped in your mind that you feel the need to share with the rest of the world.

Writing for me gives me the chance to leave all the things going on in my life and enter a world that I have control over because that's the thing most people hate about life is the lack of control and when you're a writer you hold the pen, you hold the ability to create and end and start over. That's the most exciting thing about writing is your ability to control the people and events going on to make your characters stronger or give them a lesson. Writing is a beautiful thing and to express one's feelings and even others around you is a wonderful thing that should be appreciated more.
