Writing as an Escape

Writing helps me create a different world that I can escape to.
– Ashwin Sanghi

It’s no secret that the world kind of sucks.

A better kept secret is just how much we let the suckiness of the world affect us. As a writer, that comes out in words, in the characters that come to life and live the adventures we wish we could if we weren’t bound by the utter crap that can be life.

It’s not always that bad, though. There are lights in the dark, like baby animals. I mean, look at this baby otter and tell me that it’s not at least a small bright spot in your day.

That’s what writing is too – the bright spot in the darkness. Whether you’re good at it or not doesn’t really matter because editors exist for a reason. There’s just nothing quite like writing for yourself.
