“Writing is like thinking through fingers.”
It is the best way to relax. Especially nowadays it is effortless for things to become messy in our minds. When we write things down, organize our thoughts we realize that things are not that serious. If you just start writing then you realize it is difficult to stop.
Writing in a journal or diary is like talking to a friend whom you can trust with anything. Writing a story is also a stress reliever, when you make up characters, situations, etc. You can make up your own little world in a story, make a character as perfect or as annoying as you want. There are no rules; it is your story, let your imagination flow. It’s like creating a world where anything is possible because it is you who are controlling it all.
You can put down your entire life on paper and make it the way that you want, minus all the problems, adding all the fun and excitement you want.
Making up your own characters is the most magical part of writing — people flying around, people who shoot lasers with their eyes, animals that talk; the possibilities are endless.
There will be someone who will like it, someone in the world who can relate to your characters. Your writing can be life-changing for someone. You don’t have to write for others; you write for yourself, write down all your problems, and for people who are reading it, it is just something the character is facing. If they face the same thing then relating to the character is one of the best help the person can get.
After writing, you will realize how refreshing it feels. You feel like all your problems just disappeared as if you left them all on the paper. It is truly magic!
