Bloganuary 6 – Why Do You Write?

I write to let out all the thoughts that are constantly running around in my head. I am a lazy writer, I write in my head but the words rarely make it to being written down. I have this almost constant flow of words and thoughts, most of them worries or just questions, that sometimes distract me from whatever here and now I am in.

Most of this internal monologue is what I would say if I were actually a vlogger, there are several that I regularly watch, so my head-voice sounds a lot like their content.

My mom used to say that I should have become an editor, with all the reading I did, but I would rather write. I go through bursts of activity, in middle and high school I wrote poetry mostly, but also short stories and once I started a script for a popular tv show. I used to journal as well, but I stopped doing that when I arrived in Italy because my friend sneak-read my journal and then had the chutzpah to chastise me for not sharing with her so she wouldn’t have to sneak! She actually wrote this IN the journal. I had never had anyone read my personal journals, it never even occured to me that anyone would really care. I wrote journals for Creative Writing in high school, so the teacher read those of course. Anyway, I stopped writing for a very long time.

I am trying to get back into writing, my grammar and spelling are all over the place and I am out of practice, but I am exercising those muscles and hopefully will produce something that I can read later on and not cringe too much.
