This is constantly on my mind.

I wrote this piece here in the Writing Cooperative about the same issue. Writing has definitely been therapy for me as well. The usual advice is to use a pseudonym or write thinly veiled “fiction,” but so far I’m just staying away from some stories, as there’s plenty else to write about. But I dream about if my parents didn’t know about my writing, how freeing it would be.
