On This Journal

Why create a writing journal? This is a question I've been asking myself for quite some time. Believe it or not I have been thinking, for quite awhile, about dedicating a journal just to writing, just giving my personal muse a place to express itself. I've never done it before because time, or school, or work, or simple laziness have gotten in the way. But I need to now.

I want to write more. I haven't done any writing on a regular basis since high school, and that's a shame. Ever since I got accepted to that special school arts program, and to an extent the journalism program at my university, people who know have told me I'm a gifted writer. Then I entered university, and the muse got poured into journalism assignments and essays. I want to be creative again. I want to rediscover that power that so captivated me when I was younger. That made me sit for hours in my room, characters and plots pouring spontaneously out of my head.

To some extent, this magical muse has been blocked by depression since those years. I now know that, and I am now unashamed to admit it. I want to unblock it. I want to write again. Whether this happens in fanfic, in drabbles, in poetry or in prose, is immaterial. The important thing is that I do, indeed, rediscover it.

That's what this journal is for.
