I have what I would call writer's disease. Unlike most diseases, it's beautiful. It's as beautiful as a newborn baby in a mother's arms, the first time you ride your own horse, the cry between two friends when achievement is reached, and the most beautiful view on plant earth. The symptoms of this beautiful disease: writer's block, three million ideas swimming in your head all at the same time, not being able to do anything but write at a moment, and having someone describe it again so you can use it in your next story.

Writer's have a special gift of capturing emotion in their own unique way. I've never met a writer who writes the same as another, similar but never the same. Sometimes we like to tear apart a piece of
writing, criticizing the writer for being so stupid. Those are the moments a writer knows they have captured emotion. A story without emotion isn't a story, but a text book. Text books have no emotion, they are to inform. Text books weren't meant to capture your emotions in a twisted and unimaginable plot lines.

Write like it's going out of style.
Write like you're going to forget the next line.
Write, at 4 in the morning, when a story is stuck in your head.
Write to complete
you are.

Write because it's a way to express something beautiful.
