Sometimes the weight of life, yours and others is heavy.
Sometimes knowing what others are going through or doing pulls you down.
That’s one of the reasons I write. To put down the load, give it to someone else, someone fictional who won’t mind it and who will find a way to deal with it. As they find a way, so do I.
It’s easier to share the burden. Even if it’s with someone imaginary.
Do you ever write to ease a burden or work through a problem?
