Writing 101- I write because…

Posted on

“Why does one begin to write? Because she feels misunderstood, I guess. Because it never comes out clearly enough when she tries to speak. Because she wants to rephrase the world, to take it in and give it back again differently, so that everything is used and nothing is lost. Because it’s something to do to pass the time until she is old enough to experience the things she writes about.” – Nicole Krauss

I write because, well, frankly when I read other blogger’s post I find it very fascinating that how people write so easily. Ideas and expressions come so easily to them. It irks me  that why I’m not able to do that.

There is so much boiling inside me struggling to come out but words don’t come fluently or easily to me. Expressing me is a big problem with me. I’m not much into talking and I found that writing is better than talking.

Once you say something, words are out, no correcting them. They might hurt someone or the fear is always there that I’ll be misunderstood, because in writing you can always correct them.

Moreover writing is like a therapy, cleansing you. When you come out with thoughts simmering inside you, mind becomes light and happy.

You can always edit what is unnecessary to publish.

I always join Writing 101 or 201 course and leave in the midway. I feel guilty about that.

This time I’m determined to write every day, not bothering about whether it is a good piece or bad, knowing well that my friends will correct me, inspire me and encourage me.

 

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  3. You are right about writing to express our emotions and you are also right about not always being able to find the right words to express our feelings – I guess it happens with all of us. I think that writing is a skill that can be perfected through practice. That does look like a valid reason for writing – to me at least.

  4. Oh I agree its cleansing. Just giving all thoughts to the paper or screen and it feels like a weight drops from your shoulders

  5. Hooray for you! Now, you join the rest of us who have finally figured out that we can’t write perfectly, always have that chance to be misunderstood, and find out who our real friends are – those who stand beside us and say, “What did you really mean there? I did follow it…”
