Getting what's inside of me OUT.

It teems, it tickles, it roils, it inflames, it delights, it enchants. It yearns to burst free.

It's greater than me.

If I don't write, I find my creativity manifesting itself in other ways. One winter, I made tons of bead bracelets. One spring, I took up belly dancing. Now I'm not saying that beading and belly dancing aren't awesome things that I love and still want to do. But I am saying that I noticed that while I was doing these things, I was NOT writing.

I've learned that I need to focus, and that when I do, it feels awesome. (less)
