I enjoy writing for two main reasons. First, it gives me the opportunity to express my thoughts. As a mixed introvert/extrovert, I don't always express my opinions verbally for various reasons. Writing allows me to comfortably give voice to my thoughts.
The other reason I enjoy writing is the creative process involved in it. As a child, I gave all of my dolls, Barbies, and stuffed animals personalities and backstories. With writing, I'm still able to do that through the creation of characters and plots. Writing has become my "creative play."
