Writing

"I do not like to write. I like to have written." -- Gloria Steinem

I found this quote the other day and thought to myself, "Truer words have never been spoken! She understands me!"

Part of the reason for starting this blog was to help me learn to enjoy the writing process. I'm getting there. But writing often feels like giving birth to me. I stress, I agonize, I sweat, I yell, I don't ever want to have to do it again. But then it is over and I'm exhausted, happy, proud, and can't wait to get started writing something else. :-)

  1. I completely agree. I enjoy the writing process because it's how I have learned to express myself in deeper, more meaningful ways, but also because it is cathartic. But then again, there are moments where you loathe typing those first few words in Word, then backspacing, then rewriting, etc.

    I think of it as like Photoshopped pictures: they look so flawless and perfect, but then you realize that it's after a ton of editing and airbrushing and so on. And that's a lot of WORK!
