I write all the time. Mostly thoughts and feelings I don't want to forget. I like to describe them in terms of tangable objects to remember them better.
There was this senior girl in my homeroom who wrote novels, and I always thought it was the most remarkable thing. How could she possible write an entire book? One of my biggest regrets is that I never found the courage to ask her about it.
I think I may want to try my hand at writing something. I have bits and pieces, and writing helps me project what I'm thinking. Maybe It could be beneficial, and who knows, maybe it may be halfway decent.
