Writing has been a big part of my life. I’ve kept a journal for the past 7/8 years.
When life’s been difficult for me, I didn’t know who to talk to or when I felt like I had no-one my journal felt like the most important thing to me.
I went through a time in secondary school for a few years when I was very down and unhappy. I always felt like there was no one who would really understand.
At the time I thought I needed someone but instead I found solace in putting pen to paper. Writing was my outlet.
Being 17 now, its almost scary when I look back on the things I wrote remembering the way I used to feel.
That is the theme for this month. Each week I’m going to write a piece and share it with you. It might be a poem, lyrics or just a story- sky’s the limit.
If you liked this post I hope you’ll be back next week for ‘Writers March: Week 1’.
