Writing is therapy. For me. Is it for you?
Like right now, instead of sleeping, I'm feeling all these feels and they're keeping me awake. I could take a pill or get drunk or watch a movie or cry into a pillow, but I know that the feels won't go away. They will get suppressed. And yet, if I write it out—everything that I feel—it will be gone. As simple as that.
So in a way perhaps Ello is giving me a solution to this. I'm too tired to get up now and write a blog post, but this I can type in my phone. There, I feel better already. Because I know what's bothering me. Anxiety over starting Draft 4 of The Badlings on Monday. Amazing how I had to write my way through to this understanding. Do you have the same? Or am I the only weirdo that has to write things down to make sense of them?
