Writing because I need to.
Writing because my heart feels like it's going to explode.
Writing because I'm lost.
Writing because it's healing.
Writing because it's often how God and I communicate.
Writing because my world is dark.
Writing because I feel like I'm missing something obvious.
Writing because I'm sad.
Writing because I hurt.
Writing because . . . I just don't know what else to do.

So many times, I've felt that I process my life by writing. It's so therapeutic.

I've always learned best the holes in my knowledge by talking, and writing is talking in my mind. I get this list.

I tend to turn to the pen when I'm hurting too. Keep writing Robin we are listening.

Writing is SO essential to the process. I'm in the final stages of editing my memoir about my experiences with our 17yo daughter with moderate cerebral palsy. Writing is cheaper than a therapist, for sure! (from Sharefest)

Writing is so amazing, isn't it? That's what it's here for, I think ... so yay for you for getting it out. And hugs for whatever hard is happening right now.

Writing is my answer to the questions in my life. Writing is my therapy. Writing is cathartic. Thanks for the blog. It will get better. Keep writing. Hope the shadows in your eyes will lighten up for you.

{Melinda} I've always thought my love for writing was such a gift. I have been able to process more joy and more pain and more confusion through my writing. It has helped me to release and sometimes make sense (or at least peace) with circumstances all my life.

I'm so glad God has gifted you with that talent and passion.
