NaBloPoMo - Favourite Part About Writing

What is your favourite part about writing?

Freedom and expression. I'm not very creative when it comes to arts & crafts, and I'm no good at sports (I think if I was a little bit healthier that might be different) Writing is my way of expressing myself. I'm shy in real life, I'm no good at small talk and starting conversations... where writing gives me a barrier between me and the audience. In writing I can be anything, anywhere and with anyone. Some times is distracts me from my "poor sad life" sometime I use it to express how awesome my life is. Writing (blogging in particular) allows me to show my real side, no masks, no hiding. In real life I find myself adapting to my surroundings, not talking about the things I really love, because I know people would not understand. Online the people that read my blog and writings are people that found themselves here because they like the same things I do.
I don't think I'm a very good writer. I'm getting better over time. I still have trouble getting my thoughts onto paper (or screen). I'm a little bit of a Grammer Nazi :) I try to make sure that the fullstops and commas are in the correct places, Capitals in the right spot (not like that :D) and that I use the appropriate words... don't get me started of Where, Were and We're or Their, There and They're!!!
Writing is my expression tool. When I'm sad I write... I can sometimes be found awake at 3am surrounded with pages of scribble. It's my way of getting everything out, out of my mind so I can sleep!

I'm hoping that NaBloPoMo will help me develop my writing skills. I'm looking forward to the prompts and I hope you're looking forward to reading my posts. Stay tuned!
