Writing is like Sex

Writing is a powerful emotional experience. When everything is clicking and flowing together, it can be an awesome, amazing experience that leaves you out of breath and craving a cigarette. It can be this insane amazing release of emotions and passion. When it comes down to it, it’s an exposing experience that can really bring you closer to your readers and leave you feeling warm and fuzzy and contented. When done right, it will leave you feeling satisfied, powerful, and all that jazz.




… Also, you shouldn’t do it until you’re a responsible adult in a healthy committed relationship.

He’s tasted a little bit of everything the Midwest has to offer, ranging from meth-tweaking rednecks in massive underground cave complexes to those legendary amber waves of grain. When he’s not writing, he spends most of his time screwing around on the internet.

    I’ve always thought of writing as throwing my soul down on “paper” for all to see – especially my poetry. It’s hard at times and yet – immensely rewarding. And other times, it has this catharsis we so desperately need.

    That’s a good analogy and explains why blogging scares the f— out of me and why I go through long dry spells. You said it, Brotherton.
