Write to Relax

Did you know writing is a form of relaxation, mentally?  Yes it is! The reason why is that writing down creative thoughts and ideas about a subject helps to eliminate excess words and information in our minds. Now, these written down creative thoughts and ideas are clear and concise. Once we are clear about our thinking let’s say a desired goal, when the creative idea is in front of our face (written) , then we can relax. Acknowledging the creative idea or thought is more than being abstract (thought)——its objective.

Writing is a hobby for some people and a lifestyle for others. Since it’s a hobby, it can be relaxing to write poetry——sonnets, haiku’s; short stories and inspiring ebooks. Journal writing allow a writer to take a deep look into a problem and analyze the challenge through their words. This may bring solutions to the situation, therefore, the writer can relax. Writers that write for a lifestyle may find a story in their heart to write about ——somethings they always thought about. They happily write this story,book, and ebook to release their creative ideas and at the end they are relaxed. These ideas may help others more-so, it helped the writer.

Writing is therapeutic. It allow writers new and mature to express themselves further than what they ever thought about. Creative ideas and thoughts are written, but feelings can be expressed in words, being descriptive according to how the writer feels. Releasing of old thoughts and feelings can inspire new thoughts and feelings to form. Practically, when it comes to writing for therapy, everyone is a writer so everyone can just relax!

Writing to Relax Now: Mental Relaxation for Writing that Masterpiece, by Ann Shannon is an ebook that helps new and mature writers to write with a relax state of mind. The topics written in the ebook are relaxation, breathing, meditation, and creative visualization. The ebook is available on (kindle)Amazon.com.

A Writer’s Voice

Are you aware that every writer has their own voice in writing? They may naturally write horror, suspense, romance, fiction or creative nonfiction. They write a style of writing because this is what feels comfortable for them to write. Most writers that love their writing are happy people who succumb to a long life of writing.
A writer’s voice is unique , simple, and creative. I believe for an author or writer to know their voice they need to continuously write and write different genres and styles. The best genre of writing that is most comfortable and easiest to write is their genre. Once a writer is creative with their genre within time they develop——their voice.  Really, the writer’s voice makes you and I unique from the others. I have the pleasure of reading romantic novella that’s romance with some light suspense. I became mesmerized by the intensity of the plot—-love and suspense. As I read the book my interest grew in fiction writing. In the beginning, I wasn’t particular about reading a fiction book, I like reading nonfiction books. Later, I had completed a fiction novella book that may spark some one’s desire to write fiction and I created my writer’s voice in fiction.

There are numerous writers that write similar stories, books or ebooks, but they all different because of the writer’s voice. The voice can range from funny, historical, sassy, loving, scary, mystical, and it can keep going. No two writers write alike because of their certain style of writing. When you hear certain literature from a particular writer, you know  it’s there writing. Certain readers are attracted to a writer’s style and they will faithfully purchase their books. These people are used to the voice and the genre this author writes. Writing is a form of creative  expression with a writer’s voice intact.
