Writing Magic

It never ceases to amaze me my lovelies, just how much I actually love writing. It always seems like such a chore until the laptop is sitting in my lap and a well-used word file is open with those familiar black letters scrolling across the page, waiting for me to add to them, stretch them into something beyond themselves, awaken and bring them to life. It’s a magical thing really. Whether you’re writing a poem, a novel, a journal entry, or whatever calls to you, there is something utterly fulfilling and unexplainably thrilling about putting words that reside in your mind into corporeal form on paper (or screen) and watching a story unfold. Words are life, with them we tell our stories –real and imagined– and know with them anything is possible. As writers, we can create worlds, give life, taste love, paint pain, and color sadness. As writers we can live eternally in the worlds we dream up, with the friends who know us better than anyone else ever could.

    • I’m the same way, sometimes it’s just there, other days it’s not, and then some days I just don’t feel like sitting down and writing like I should. I actually forget that I like writing sometimes lol 😀

  1. That pretty much sums up writing and drawing. I feel the same whenever I’m creating a picture, too. It’s kind of like feeling more alive than you would have without those words or that art. 🙂

  2. I’m compelled to write, if I don’t I start feeling ill. I need to get everything I absorb out somehow: experience, thoughts, and emotion. I’m not sure why it ended up being writing and not something else. Perhaps a fascination with words is in my blood, haha.

    • Are there other writers in your family? It seems like a good half of my family writes in one way or another lol. And I know what you mean, writing just calls to me, especially when I feel really emotional. Needless to say I got tons of writing done during my parents’ divorce (which sounds so horridly cliche I know lol)! 😀

      • No, not that I know of. They’re all painters or crafty in their artistry. Hehe, well, we draw from what we have, right? It’s the tough experiences that provokes the inner writer more easily than happy memories. 🙂
