I can’t tell you why I need to write…

Or why there’s nothing I enjoy more than reading and drinking coffee for hours on end.

I can’t tell you why I live for highlighting those sentences and phrases that are… Perfect.

It’s an ecstatic feeling to see something that I’ve been wrestling with put into clear words. To see my brain organized neatly on the page before me.

And when those kinds of electric thoughts hit me, it pains me — like, on a physical level — to not write them down and share them with everyone I can.
