I write for the enjoyment of it. It is a way for me to let my creative juices flow, to share stories with my internet friends, to get things off my chest. Writing is an outlet for me. I love it.

The main reason is my own ego. I like recognition. Of various sorts. I had read thousands of books, magazines, etc. in solid form. I began reading stories on an online a site, came to the conclusion I could do as well, tried it, and I am now a writer. I'll keep writing as long as I have readers. I don't write to store my work away without being seen. To me that would wasting my energy. Just like acting and dancing would be wasted if not performed for appreciate audiences. Even so simple as an audience of one. Creation must be shared.

All I'm saying is you've never seen me crying and eating tacos at the same time.

I used to write to let all my emotions and thoughts out onto a page, figuring if they were here or on deviantART, they couldn't hurt me too bad.
Then I wrote strictly for awareness reasons on subjects such as eating disorders, depression, ptsd and various other disorders, not to mention diseases like the various cancers that are out there.
Now... I don't write often, but most of my writing pops out as a musing or a rant about something or other, though I am working on the sequel to Tomorrow right now. I have yet to decide whether to share it here. If ever I find it worthy of publishing, it should probably have never been publicly available, correct?
I still write for awareness occasionally and every once in a while I'll need to get out a few anxious thoughts, but most of my writing now is centered on a story I started previously.

Check out my website The Wandering Squirrel

Working on a new draft of Tomorrow and a first draft of a dystopian-ish novel. We'll see what actually gets written, lol.

I have been a reader all of my life. I worked with a playwriter when I was younger, after figuring out that the actors didn’t shape the story arc. I took up writing just recently when I was laid up for an extended period with no human interaction. Being incredibly lonely, this offered me a release of the thoughts / ideas / anxietiesrushing through my painkiller fogged head.

A story unread, may as well not exist.

My wanderer series
