Writing Heals

The act of writing heals, is a treatment to becoming a better you.

A need for writing therapy, treatment, comes from experiences of people involved or have been in the military service. The writing heals technique aids when you're ill, received low college grades and/or lost of a job.

This isn't to say that the medical profession should be ignored. Writing comforts when the medical profession can't quit reach you, or you may want an alternative to healing.

The re-telling of what happened, often, is hard and uncomfortable. It's easy to jot down what happened, how, in a comfortable place.

The actual time could be during dawn, for example. Or, your thoughts flow more before bed? There's no one to compete with, or urge you along. Move as slow or fast as you like.

Writing gives you the opportunity to heal. It's therapy. The writing can be a journal, poems, songs, fiction or non-fiction.

Simply, write. You see the words. Read them. See your experience. Let the words be a treatment. Distance yourself.

Now, it may take more than one time or one treatment.

The first time scanning through the words may be too hard. Stop. Put the words away. Let a few days go by.

Return to the words. Take a deep breath. Relax. Embrace the words. Allow healing through writing to begin.

About Me

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
