Why write? What it's all about...
This is the moment when I tell you all about writing from my personal experience.
Quite simply - it's the best!
You only need a pen and paper and you're away. Of course it's nice to have lots of other stuff, computers, laptops, folders, files, pens, pencils, books on writing, magazines and classes to attend - but you can't get away from the simple fact that all you really need is a piece of paper, a pen and, most importantly of all, you.
Because you are what your writing is all about. And we all deserve a bit of time for ourselves.
We all love discovering things about ourselves, and writing helps you to do just that. When we write we unleash a part of ourselves we didn't know existed. We begin with a blank sheet of paper and twenty minutes later, lo and behold! it's covered in writing. Did you know what you were going to write? Probably not! So you've brought out a part of yourself you didn't even know existed.
When we write we create our own world. We create characters, maybe unlike any other character that has walked the pages of a book before. We are in control - we create the plot, we decide what will happen to those characters. We can make it all as beautiful or as mysterious as we like.
And we don't just write for ourselves. The pleasure of producing a piece of writing that someone else enjoys is insurmountable. It's great, fantastic and makes you feel a real sense of achievement.
And all this with just a pen and piece of paper?
Yes. Go for it. Do it now!
