anybody here into writing? I use to love writing but my depression kicked but so hard and it was hard to get into it.now I'm slowing getting into it and even doing nanowrimo
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Anxiety (Including GAD)
If writing music/poetry counts then yes!
ofc it does! I write music and poems also! Well...more like I use to...I want to get back into it.
I love writing poetry, and eventually want to write songs as well! Im currently trying to get myself to continue writing. My depression has really been hitting this past week and it’s been making me feel discouraged about continuing to write.
same for me..I'm going to try hard to get something going
I'm a novelist and indie author. It was really hard making traction for the first 10 years or so, but I found my flow. Writing is also how I cope with a lot of my trauma and has been good for my depression.
Nano can be tough, but don't get down on yourself if you struggle with it. Writing is better than not, imo.
ohh mind if I message?
Sure, I don't mind
YES, but I don't write like books, I write things like scripts since I plan to animate some of the things I write
Same thing happened to me. I love writing but now it is connected to trauma
I love writing but never have time
would you like to be in my writing server? I'd be interested in what you write.
I mostly write fanfics but ye
would you like to be in my writing server? I wouldn't mind seeing some clips.
I also just need writing friends
count me in ^^
I resonate with this! ❤️
what do you write?
I'm no novelist, but I like to journal! I like to meditate and write down my thoughts, which helps keep me centered and no so focused on thoughts that are more intrusive. I also keep a positivity log so that I have something to look back on when I'm not feeling great.
this sounds awesome! Keep at it!
I love Journaling, it's so calming and relaxing to me, but also like writing erotic type stories. ❤️
journaling is very fun.
Would you like to join my writing server?
sure I would give it a shot!!!
I was a slam poet (competitive spoken word poetry) . Absolutely loved it!
poetry is amazing. I was never in slam poetry but I was in poetry club and have read my poems in front of hundreds of people at a random place. Didn't know that many people would be there.
I’ve written even like fake poetry as a really young person, ya know like rhymes and what not. In high school I made it into a book which put a fire under my belly and in college I heard slam for the first time. I switched my style and was all the better for it and am a much better writer now too! And yes! People love spoken word! And slam/spoken word is also so engaging, expressive and full of raw emotional power. It is liberating and feels like freedom. Chicago has something called Louder than a Bomb every which is a a competition for kids of middle school age to college. And kids who grew up in it still are a part of it after graduating. The culture is amazing and people get down and dirty and go wild! Anyway, your post has created a spark in my mind and I may do some free writing. Thanks!!
I'm writing a book so I'm not sure about poems or songs but when I can't write for awhile I rewrote what I already wrote. Kind of like editing, I basically rewrite what I already wrote but in a different way to see what I think flows better or just sounds better. I think it also helps improve my writing in general
I definitely understand this and it does help! I have books I started at age 11 I still rewrite. It's very helpful and also fun to see how your writing develops.
Would you like to be in my writing server? You could share some of your work
thank you but I just write for myself. I don't plan on ever sharing it with anyone
I’m trying to get back into it, I used to write constantly as a kid/teen and I wanna get into writing comics, it’s just really intimidating for some reason 😅
I understand. What type of comics?
Also if you want to join my writing server your more then welcome too
YESSS i write a lotttt poems, and just writing in general. it's my favorite thing.
I haven't written anything except for school in a long time. I used to think I was good but idk anymore
I like writing but it can be hard to focus even if I want to write 😂😊☺️
I'm trying. I have so many stories to tell. Just can't motivate. I'm an excellent writer. I just want to fall off the earth when I think about writing now. I know it's cuz I'm overwhelmed with emotions and writing brings them out.
I love writing poetry!
I write. I struggle with a lot… I also get lost in editing and revisions and perfectionism and RSD. It’s hard to finish writing.
I love writing but I'm blocked right now
