For the past couple of days, I have been feeling kind of down. You see, I am at the time in my life where the great majority of my friends are getting into serious relationships, and even getting married, while I have been single for a while with no real hope of finding anyone in the near future. I know what you may be thinking: what does this have to do with writing, or being creative in any sort of way? I promise though, I do have my reasoning.
“Creativity is like electricity. We don’t understand how it works, we just use it.” – Maya Angelou
I identify with this quote a lot, especially when it comes to writing. Three semesters of writing classes and I still couldn’t tell you how to write. I couldn’t tell you how I write. Writing just seems to happen. The creative process is different for everyone. Everyone writes differently.
