IWSG - Writing Therapy




Founder




 Question - How do major life events affect your writing? Has writing ever helped you through something?

Consistently. The truly personal is hidden but it’s there. And yes, it’s helped. Writing is therapy!

  1. I always say writing is cheap therapy. Unless you count the cost to my waistline. LOL

  2. LOL to Elizabeth's comment. Writing therapy comes at a cost for sure.

  6. Writing as therapy doesn't really work for me. I use it as an escape away from my problems instead.

    1. Either way it's a help. We all need a break from reality once in a while!

  7. Glad it's been therapy for you. Once I get through this last busy time, I'm hoping to escape into my writing.

  8. Yes indeed, writing is cheap therapy. And I don't have to drive across town and sit in a waiting room! Happy writing in October.

  9. Writing does take us out of the mess we're in and allow us the sense of control. The day is better when I write.

  10. I do encrypt my life in things that I write. Sometimes its all been easily deciphered by people who know me well who have read my writing. I'm much more careful these days--I don't let those people read my writing anymore. More than once I've poured my life onto the page and I guess it made me feel better for a while.

    1. I don't think anyone recognizes me in my writing. But I could be wrong. Doesn't matter, it's therapeutic!

  12. Hi Renee - my blogging keeps me learning and thus positive when others around me are negative or in 'dull' mode! Cheers Hilary
