Writing is good for the soul! You can express yourself by writing and it releases built up tension. I write because I love it, I have so much to say and it is a way to free and empty my mind. When I was young I always wanted to be an author, and I was always wrapped up in a book. Books can take you to another world and you do not even have to leave your home. Writing is the same way, you can bear all. Your thoughts, your emotions, your problems can all be written down into neat little paragraphs and eventually it becomes a book, your book, your life.
