“The Writer” by The Writer

(In which the writers address themselves, by writing.)

 

Anima Digitum

“Words can be heard differently but rhythm and rhyme are timeless; I write so that my unsightly nigh frightened voice which does not speak can speak. I write so secrets kept are not demons I feed.”

Meursault

“I write to dispel the generated myths surrounding my self. I write to dispel the fiction I shrouded myself within.”

The Judge-Penitent

“I write for every moment I have concealed, perverted, distorted, mutilated or deceived myself. For every moment I have been guilty, ashamed or afraid of who I am. To undo every moment where I failed others because I failed myself. To forgive myself, to love myself. And in this repentance for unjust penitence, by my writing I hope to forgive others for the suffering inflicted into them. ‘To wash away with my love, all the sadness you’ve known'”

Filàk Dupèrre

“A decadent dandy who writes for his own amusement”

Epiphaneotos

“I write because I’m scared. I’m scared of these thoughts I can’t see, these thoughts surrounded by darkness. That’s why I put them on paper, offering them to the light, so that I can look at them. And while I’m trying hard to award them the tangibility I think they need, I finally understand the beauty of their abstraction. And then I’m scared again. So I write more.”

Vikare

“I write for the years I have not, the lost expressions of things come and past, the lost vocalisations of experiences vast. The moments that were missing, not captured in time, and those that shall not meet the same fate. To relieve, to drain the butt of suppressed emotion into something that I can feel pride within. I write for myself, because I can.”

Dionysia

“We are the stories we tell ourselves of who we are.”

Secvndvs

“I write to move further, to leave behind that which should be discarded and hold dear that which is worth keeping.”

E.O.

“I often don’t, but I should write to be understood.”

And so it went…

“I was originally a dunce and remained in the lowest sets for English throughout my academic life. At some point, something changed and I began to realise that I was able to place my ability to talk on the written page. Since then I’ve become an addict; I could think of worse addictions.”

Scarlet Rouge

“I am speechless. I write.”

Ossídio Gaspar

“I am continuing to be the writer I once was.”
