Writing can heal

This beautifully written post by Christian Mihai – a prolific writer and one of my favourite bloggers – is a true description of how some of us writers feel about our art. Some of us write to escape. Some of us write for our sanity’s sake. Some of us write to heal. Enjoy!

Or they write because they simply want to move on.
