This post is inspired by a new and valued fellow blogger…
Many of us write as a way to survive, to tell truths we feel others may not hear. This is my response to that post as to ‘why I write’.
Why do you write?
I write to know what my heart is saying and my mind too to externalise it onto the page
I write often in response to having read something that makes me think of the first line, often my prose poems start like this.
As a child I wrote because I did not feel heard or that anyone was listening or if they did only to tell me I had it wrong and didnt shouldn’t, couldn’t feel like that.
I write because I love the feeling of it and it keeps me company
I write as a way to connect with the passion I have and feel for certain subjects so close to my heart such as emotions and emotional healing
I write hopefully to connect with others and to touch another’s soul as my soul is so often awakened, inspired and touched by another’s writing.
I also believe that writing keeps my sensitivity flowing forward and nourishes my spirit in all kinds of ways
