Day 141: Writing Is More Than Creative Expression

Writing is therapy.  It allows us to deal with our emotions and situations that are difficult to deal with in any other way.  I write poetry to deal with depression, frustration, and anger.  I write prose to let my thoughts run free without any constraints.  It’s liberating.  And, if it gets me published some day, then good for me.  Writing can serve a multitude of purposes.  It can get your ideas across to others.  It can make people laugh, cry, think, learn, and see other viewpoints that are different than their own.  It can raise awareness or hide the truth.  It’s a multipurpose tool.  It can be used for good or evil.  It can change the world or it can be pure entertainment.  So if someone tells you that you’re wasting your time when you write, tell them that you are most definitely not wasting your time.  And then, sit down and write something that proves it to them!
