Writing

Writing has always been an addiction for me, in a way that I sometimes try to avoid it. It's something that brings me joy, sometimes it's liberating and cathartic even...but, at the same time, it's a bit dangerous because I get caught up in the things that I write. If I'm writing something that means anything to me, I get involved, I think about it, I plan what I'm going to write next, I get frustrated when I don't know "where to go" and somehow the characters gain a life of their own. There was one time when, out of nothing, a character I had created appeared in my dreams! It was amazing :)
After all this thinking about it...when I don't write I miss it because it can be exciting, challenging and sometimes a struggle, a good one.
And when I don't write for a while, it's harder to get back on track. I stopped for more than a week because I needed to study harder and, when I wanted to get back at it, it was difficult. Now I'm almost finishing something I was writing (at least for now) and it almost hurts to let go of that. I have no plans for writing anything else after this so I feel a little lost. Plus I have no idea of how it's going to end, maybe because I really don't want to end it.

Are you me? Languages, writing, playing guitar, loving music, doing psychology? I'm starting to worry I may have created you in my sleep or an altered state of consciousness, lol.

Good luck again for Friday (if I don't catch you before then), I'm sure you'll do fine :)

LOL Really?! That's funny! Well, the guitar was just a thing of the moment - I probably won't be playing much but the world hasn't lost a great musician. lol
But all the rest, yeah that's me. :)

Thanks, I need that good luck :)
