I bet we’re a lot alike, you and me.

We both love to write.

We have always loved to write, and I am sure that it is because of the effect writing has on us. It is a way for me to express myself and my thoughts in ways that I cannot do verbally or with other art forms. I like how there are no limits to what you can say or even where you can go with your thoughts when writing.

Writing is a safe place for me; if I could not get my feelings out through writing, they would fester inside until I exploded in some way.

It also helps tremendously that it is something that anyone can do from any location at any time — which appeals greatly to someone who is a self-proclaimed introvert. This means that I can be alone and in solitude but still achieve something positive.

There is nothing else like it to me, and that makes writing an extraordinary thing.

One of my favorite things about writing is how powerful it can be. It can genuinely move people from their current point in life into an entirely new level of existence, or at least one they did not think was possible before. I have had that happen to me many times over through certain pieces of work that I have done and those of others. It brings us together; we all share this passion for freedom by bringing our inner thoughts out free from any rules or limits we might feel are imposed on us.

Free thinking is a beautiful thing, and I revel in it, which is why I write to share what comes out of this head of mine with others who might be able to relate or resonate with it.

I am sure you can agree that writing is a powerful tool, no matter who the author may be. This power stems from simple things like inspiration and passion and from others such as hope, fear, and nostalgia. It’s pretty easy to tap into these feelings and bring them forth into your writing when you do not feel confined by rules or norms set out for us by society or the world around us.

That’s why we have all termed people such as writers, poets, singer-songwriters, artists, and the like the “outsiders” of society; they can see things…
