Why YOU Should Write Too 

Calling all writers! And non-writers. 

Everyone is always going on about how you should find yourself and know who you are (I myself believe that I am a few different kinds of people, depending on my mood. But that’s a story for another day).

A great way to know and understand yourself better is by writing. Writing can reveal truths about ourselves that we would never have discovered any other way.

The primary duty of literature is to tell us the truth about ourselves by telling us lies about people who never existed.

We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones.

-Stephen King

It doesn’t matter what you write, who you show it to or what you do with your work. Isn’t it crazy? With just a pen and a blank piece of paper you can create worlds; you can make people laugh, you can make people cry. You can make people feel; you can motivate and inspire.

To me that’s the closest thing to magic we’ll get.

Writing is very personal, I believe this is why writers find it so scary to share their writing with others. It is a piece of themselves that they are putting out there for others to judge and rip apart.

Still, I want to encourage all writers to share what they have written. What if people don’t like it? But… what if they DO?

7 Billion people experienced this day in a different way. Your story deserves to be told. Who knows who you might be helping, inspiring, teaching?

Write beautifully, write brutally, write anything, write everything. Just write.

I Killed Myself

Hello You. I’d like to share one of my secrets with you:

A few days ago… I killed myself. 

No, I am not writing to you as a ghost from the other side (that would’ve made this blog very interesting). Scrolling through social media during one of the last few days of 2015 I found a quote that inspired me to do something a little crazy.

If you want to kill yourself, kill what you don’t like. I had an old self that I killed. You can kill yourself too, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop living.

I happen to love quotes and I am starting to love my new self.

Life is too crazy to put into words but I like to try and capture some moments and feelings in the form of fancy wordplay. Or sometimes not so fancy wordplay. Some of the things I write come from the days where the darkest parts of my mind take over; others from moments where inspiration strikes and I simply have to write. My soul will not have it any other way.

Either way I hope that you can take something from every post I make, even if it is just that being crazy is okay.

All this coming from a girl who lost her mind.
