Stress and Writing

So some people get really (and I mean really) stressed out about writing. They worry about this and that, nitpick over details, and generally drive themselves crazy. I actually find writing relaxing. Therapeutic almost. Ever since I was a young girl I have been able to express myself through writing a million times better than speaking. Writing gives you a freedom you can’t grasp otherwise. Whether you choose to share your work with others or keep it to yourself, you have no boundaries.

I remember how much fun I had writing my first book. I burned down a house! It was the best. Obviously I would never go burn down a real house, but doing it to a figurative one rocked. So to those who freak out about their writing. Chill and enjoy it. It’s your imagination your living in, and your being your own worse critic!

  1. Spot on! Sure there are times when the ideas dry up but I write because I love the stories that come out of my head.
    As the wonderful Sir Terry Pratchett says: “Writing is the most fun you can have by yourself.”
    My novel ‘The Tale Of Findo Gask’ was all about a thief doing lots of the things I’d love to do but am not brave enough to do. Enormous fun from the safety of a desk.
