“I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.” ~ Flannery O’Connor
I savor writing.
It makes me focus, is therapeutic, and helps me relax!
I find myself so in the moment that I often neglect other things because I am soaking in the pleasure of the process.
The way my fingers fly across the keyboard as I share my private thoughts.
The swivel of my chair as I sit back and critique what I have written.
I get so totally immersed in what I am doing that time slips away, other thoughts disappear, and I just can’t (don’t want to) stop!
Why do I write? I like the way I feel when I write. I can often see things more clearly and can grasp life in ways that might otherwise escape me.
Even though I have much to learn about writing (and can only dream about becoming a real writer), I consider it such a treat to sit at my desk and actually savor this process.
