There are some things I can’t write about in my life. So instead of talking about my life, I am going to put my energy, my feelings of being lost and my various emotions that I can’t talk about here into a novel.

I came to this decision in therapy today. I’ve been thinking and talking about mental health so much that I forgot first and foremost that I am a writer.

What I want to do is tell stories. I am going to pour my guts and soul into this novel.

That’s the wonderful thing about writing fiction: freedom. I can say whatever I want because these are my characters and they are real to me. They are like actors in a play or better yet puppets that I can tell what to say.

Writing is freeing.

I want to be free.

I have been trapped inside myself.

Finally my voice will be heard.

I am excited to start.
