Write for five minutes. Don’t think too hard. Just write. Then share over @thegypsymama. There’s only one rule. Visit the link before yours and leave a comment.
This week the word is write.
Why do I write? I write mainly because I have a lot to say and no way to say it. I have trouble with verbal communication. Writing allows me to think very long and hard about what I want to say. When I write, I can edit. I can proof read as many times as I want to communicate exactly what I want.
I write because it’s therapeutic. I have a lot of stuff I buried deep inside for many years, a skeleton closet that goes as far as Narnia. By writing letters to God, I’ve been able to release so much I was never able to release before because sharing my story out loud is just too painful for me.
I write because it’s fun to entertain others with my adventures, which are really not that adventurous, but never the less fun. It’s a way to be connected. Since the advent of the internet, writing has lead me to friendship I never found anywhere else on earth.
And so I write. Hi! My name is Michelle. I am a writer.
