I write because not writing isn’t working for me

My name is Smiley Yearwood and I am a writer.

This is my second Writing 101 and I’m for the sense of community, the daily prompts and the motivation to keep writing. For the longest time I have been suffering from depression and it’s only recently I have been officially diagnosed and started to leave denial behind and start moving up, moving on, moving forward.

I’m working on my first novel but it’s so easy to get caught up and weighed down by life and the novel gets nudged a little further into the future while you deal with the here and now.

Writing makes me happy.

You know when you have a draw packed full of stuff and it jams the desk? Till eventually you yank it open and empty EVERYTHING on the floor? Then you  work out what was jamming up the works and then put back in everything you need and throw away the stuff you don’t?

That’s me and writing. That’s why I write

  1. You might say the same for life itself… sometimes the “drawer gets so full of stuff that you have to stop and try to get it all to fit – somehow.

    Please keep writing – it will help you, I know it does that for me – AND it will help others!

  2. You have been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by William Chasterson. This is an award created by Edge of Night recognizing bloggers from all over the world for their hard work. It is meant to recognize bloggers, give them encouragement, motivation to continue blogging, and basically just let them know that they are loved and appreciated. Being a blogger is not as easy as the silly name suggests and many times we get discouraged but this award serves as a reminder of why we started blogging in the first place.
