Troubled Times

Writing is the perfect treatment for unhappy times. If you are worried or tense about the unavoidable bleak patches in your life, then writing saves you a lot of hand-wringing and pacing about.

When you write, you inhabit another world. As I said in my last post, you are 'there'. You can take on a fictitious set of troubles. There's no better way to unburden yourself of your own real ones.

So, instead of banging your head against walls, trying to untangle your own dilemmas, you can take pleasure in sorting out someone elses's. Who knows? When you return to the real world, you may feel refreshed enough to see a solution to yours too.
