Writing helps you to express your deepest feelings. Once you can express yourself you can tell the world what you want from it or how you would like to change it. All the changes in the world, for good or evil, were first brought about by words. --1980When I read the above words I thought about what it is that I really want from the world. I feel insignificant and incapable of changing THE WORLD, but what about my own little world that I live in every day?
I do write in order to come to an understanding about my own emotions, hopes and desires. My husband hates it when I write him letters (you know the "you hurt my feelings" kind. He likes love letters), but when I write I can take the time to delve deep into my psyche. When I try to verbalize my emotions I make a really big mess of things. It is hard to take it back once it is said, but when you write you can always edit and revise until you get down to the kernel of truth you were seeking for.
What do I want from my world? Understanding, love, acceptance, cooperation, friendship, romance, silliness. What do you want from your world and how does it slip into your writing?
