Why I write…

Today is National day on writing with the hashtag #WhyIWrite on twitter.

The simple answer is I write because I have words inside of me aching to get out.

I write to inspire, to engage, to resonate, to share, to understand and to create understanding.

It might be a word, a sentence, a phrase, a poem, a song, a story, anything that creates intrigue and inspiration.

Words bring joy and happiness.  They cleanses the body with tears, they move you.  With a simple smile, a deep thought, inspiration and healing is found. The best words, poems, songs, stories resonate from within. They pull and tear at your heartstrings until you feel as if you almost can’t breathe. They can take you to anywhere you want to go and to anywhere you have been capturing your mind, body, spirit and soul as a whole.

Writing heals.  Creative arts heal.  It is not only healing and therapeutic for the writer it is healing and therapeutic for the reader and the viewer.  It also gives us a sense of who we are deep down.
