LOL - no, I am all set with therapy, but yes it does get my creative forces flowing.
Of course! Though, I usually don't realize it until someone points it out to me.
Yes, writing is a form of therapy I think, as every urge and feeling requires expression and expiation. Some choose action as their vehicle; my vehicle is the written word.
No. Not therapy for me .... although I may need therapy if I am ever stopped from being creative through writing and through painting!
Oh, yes! Therapy and conflict is the stuff of Drama and we can escape reality with Fiction.
I write because I feel compelled to I could no more give up writing than I could stop breathing. So if that's a form of therapy then yes it is.
Writing is definitely a form of personal therapy. My writing expresses grief, regret for what actions could have been taken, joy for actions that were taken, and the general embrace of everything that makes up our lives. My internal conflicts have certainly made it to the page - and serve as excellent fertilizer for a garden of creative ideas and storylines. People often tell me, "I'd love to write, even if it were just to express my feelings." I always ask them what they're waiting for. Write - it's cheaper than a therapist.
conflict can only happen if there is something in common.
i am humanity, there is a common between me and the audience which is the world.
so yes, the shared part is what creates the energy to write.
Yes, definitely. For me, writing emerges out of the inner world of unspoken conflict, emotion, and fantasy. It's a kind of dream world where things make strange sense.
Writing can be an excellent form of personal therapy. Internal conflicts could very well drive a creative force. As far as I am concerned, an internal conflict does not need to exist to be creative.
Not really, no.
Definitely. writing them down helps me to resolve them.
If it is therapy I'm in a lot of trouble. Creative force? Inner conflict always helps, as do exterior ones.
Yes, I think there is a therapeutic aspect to writing some of the time, though it becomes tiresome if that is the only motivation. Writing is a narcissistic enterprise in as far as the writer is in a position to control the content, but there is a fun and strange manner in which the characters take on lives of their own and surprise you as you start listening to what they are offering you the writer.
Internal conflicts sometimes spark creativity, yes.
No.... but there is no better place to excape than to the pure joy of storytelling when the world tosses harsh reality your way. We become fabulous writers when we truly 'Live... not merely survive'.
