How does writing make you feel? Here are some primer questions you can respond to as well:

Is writing a natural process for you, or a forced act?

Do ideas rush out of you, or are they constantly stuck?

What benefits do you get out of writing?

We will publish these responses to our writing community on Read Write.as.
