Just Write: Writing about Writing

I missed writing and linking up last week. I had thoughts swirling in my head. I wrote bits and pieces of things in my head as I went through my days. I never slowed down enough to write them though. Or if I did, I judged them unworthy of publishing. Silly, since this exercise is all about just putting the words out there, rough and imperfect.

It still startles me that I can miss writing. I've never kept a diary or journal. I've rarely felt a build up of words, waiting to tumble down and out. But lately, they are there. Unformed, vague, but thoughts that want looking at, that want release.

I love reading other entries, seeing what has sparked a stream of words for someone else. I seek inspiration and encouragement. Sometimes just a feeling of "me too" or "I have been there" and less isolation.

It's all still so new to me, this writing thing.

  1. I love that you posted this.

    We all get it and yes- that feeling of, "me too!" is a lifeline.

  2. i know exactly what you mean. and there it is again...that me too thing :)

  3. I like how you put it: Thoughts that want to be looked at, released. So very true.

    I'm not a writer, either, but I have sure found that I enjoy writing! And it's good for me...these thoughts that need extra examination!


I'm dying to know what you have to say, so talk already! Thanks!
