So what do I get out of writing? These days, it is not about creative expression; I canít tell you the last time I wrote any poetry. It is a place for me to clear my head, to stop and think about what is going on of any true significance or meaning. It is my own personal therapy session, where I can vent or work on an issue, try to understand what is going on, the whys and wherefores of a situation or my reaction. I often write more than 100 words, then edit it down to the core essentials.
