Is Writing Your Outlet?
Many of us write because we love the creative process. Other like it because we get to play god and manipulate the worlds and lives of our characters. We can experience a fictional first love, first kiss, save a dystopian universe. And of course, we can get lost in the hope of becoming published, a powerful force of motivation.
For these and other reasons, writing can be the ultimate outlet and escape.
Or are you one of those people whose writing is so intense, you need to escape back into the real world to run away from the pressure of imperfect plotlines, creepy characters, and a gazillion revisions?
Which camp do you fall into? Do you need to escape to your writing, or escape from it?
