“Writing did not save my life, but it has continued to do what it always has done. It makes my life a brighter and more pleasant place.”
― Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
My response today is as much as my answer to Sadje’s Sunday Poser yesterday, Why do I blog.
I love to write. I enjoy it, and it gives me a means of putting forward my point of view without fear of ridicule or judgement.
It is also a release of frustrations, worries, concerns, even anger, which is put down on paper (or a screen) and then entirely up to me if I publish my thoughts. Often I have prepared something that is on my mind but not published immediately, waiting for my hot head to cool, or to get my head together as I did all those years ago with my Moan Book.
Whilst writing may not save my life, it does help give it some order, and in turn peace of mind.
