Writing As Comfort: A Short Post

Don’t worry, this is going to be brief.

Last night, I was talking with my wife, and I said (this might not be a direct quote, but anyway),

You know, one of the things I really enjoy about writing is how much it is helpful for my mental state. I could have a long day or maybe a stressful day at work or somewhere else in the world, but when I’m sitting down in front of the computer, all of that goes away. It’s what I look forward to at the end of the day, resetting myself for the next day.

She replied (also maybe not a direct quote – anyway),

It’s like when I go work out, when I want to relieve my stress. That’s how it works for you.

I love her. And I love writing, too.
