Can writing heal the soul?

Can writing heal the soul?

Every day someone puts out another self-help book, article or e-book. We all browse through them at a bookstore or even online. I'm thinking of writing one about my journey from a healthy, busy schoolteacher to someone at home on social security with Lupus.

I write short stories and poems all the time. A lot of my writing has to do with my life and experiences. So, yes I belive writing heals.

As I struggle through my illness (which has taken a serious turn for the worst in the past two months) I find writing, blogging and sharing is about the only thing that makes me feel I am healing within.

MY ADVICE: Go with your heart. Write when the need arises. For me, that means daily.
