I have been writing as far back as I can remember, and the more pain I went through the more prolific my writings were. I think that is how it is with most of us who find an outlet in the pen. Before I could even put the words on paper, I was creating great stories, and commentaries.
I write like I think, so maybe the words are meant for myself, to justify certain feelings in time. Yes, this is how it should be. You should be able to look back at your life, chronologically through the stories and musings, and remember and reflect, and inevitably share, and leave behind, so that something will say, "I was here, I made a difference".
