    Poetry and stories

    Just out of curiosity, does anybody here write poetry or stories as a hobby? Do you find it helps your frame of mind?

    I never set out to write poetry but it just started coming to my mind and I too find it very therapeutic.

    Yes. Weaving a personal story into the fabric of a short story is therapeutic for me.

    I have written stories and poetry, I also jounal. I do find that stories and poetry give me the opportunity to address the most traumatic events in my life in a way that makes me feel less exposed while also expressing how vulnerable I was and am. With a story or a poem you can demonstrate how you feel and what you have endured without specifically eluding to your personal self.

    That's so interesting AJ. I find it easier to write about my own stuff (usually journaling) than to actually make a story, fiction or otherwise. But I do find writing therapeutic.
