I have always found writing to be a wonderful way to get things off of my chest, venting I guess you might say. Like many people, I used to keep a journal. However, over time I realized I would use it more to keep a record of things rather than using the journal to record deep secrets or things of that nature. I did find solace in writing when I was frustrated and angry; I also enjoyed writing in other ways as well. It did not matter if the things I wrote were very dark and angry or not; nordid it matter if I expressed goals or explored my imagination. The point is that when I could not express myself verbally I could with a pen, even if no one was to see what I had written and I would get so lost in writing.

I would write rambling pieces about worlds I had completely made up. I started telling those stories to people including teachers, friends and family. Those people encouraged me to endulge and indeed write more. I would do so; in fact I think I have written something every day in some manner, since I was a child.
I have been a writer on various online sites now for quite a few years. It has indeed been a new and interesting experience for me. It adds to the knowledge I posess and certainly teaches and instructs me in new ways or styles of writing. I write mostly for Expertscolumn.com and Bubblews.com. I enjoy writing for the sites pretty much although I am writing articles not really fiction which is what I prefer. Do not worry though, I am indeed sometimes working on other projects and other things as many another aspiring writer tends to do.
