Writing is my Life, and It helps me to express emotions I might normally suppress.

Writing is My Life

Most people have hobbies, indeed I do. I am an active person, and still enjoy walking,swimming, and playing badminton. But my greatest delight is putting my thoughts into words.

If something amuses me, I want to share it, and if something troubles me, I need to get it off my chest. Writing gives me the licence to express that. In fact at my darkest moments of despair, I have found writing very therapeutic, better than any pills or medication , once my thoughts are out in the open, I feel better, and can try to move on from it.

Emotion plays a great part in creating a very readable story, It draws the reader in, they need to experience the emotions with you, and feel like they are a part of the story. It gives credibility to the plot, and when I read books by other people, I always go for one that has plenty of that in the storyline.

I try to write something every day, if there is an injustice, I will express my dismay, if there is something to be proud about, such as a fellow Brit winning a race or a gold medal at the Olympics, I will high light it, by writing about them. My writing is my voice to the world, and I hope that some people have time to stop and listen to it.
