I write to express thoughts, feelings and emotions. Do I want to write a love story so I can try to explain how wonderful and complex and awful love is? Should it have a happy or sad ending? Should the story be about a high school couple finally getting married or maybe about a mother and daughter struggling to co-exist with each other? Or do I want to write about a fantasy world to try to express the need to escape from the trails of this life and try and find something a little more easier to handle but harder to explain?
Words start to form on the screen as my fingers dance across my keyboard. Words become sentences, sentences become pages, pages become chapters and soon I feel fulfilled. My stresses melt away and I can feel more relaxed when I see my characters interact with each other. Their lives are just started as mine feels like it's ending.
