I have been asked many times “Why Tyler do you write” and this evening if you have been on twitter you would have noticed that lots of other people have answered the same question.
You see when I first started I thought it would end up being some sort of journal that I could post on when ever and no one would notice it. It would be a way to vent out my frustration without pissing off people. THEN AUGUST HAPPENED!
If you do not know what happened because you never saw it, or this is your first time here, I did a MASSIVE post about how bad I thought Brighton pride is. What I didn’t expect was that people would read it. Then I didn’t expect that it would get to Brighton Pride. It did. I have received some back lash from it, and 99% of them are from the people the post is aimed at. Honestly when I first wrote it, it was just going to be another post that was going to be locked away.
Writing became a fucking drug then. WordPress had caught me in hook line and sinker and several months on I’m writing three post a week minimum and have started advertising the shit out of my content.
It turned out that people actually wanted to start hearing from a dyslexic potty mouthed non-binary trans person. People wanted to know how I felt about issues and events that went on in the community. People started messaging me thanking me for the stuff that I was posting. PEOPLE WERE THANKING ME!!! How weird is that? I’m just posting how I feel about things, and my own experiences.
I then realised that there was other reasons why I am now writing. Reasons why I’m up at twenty past two in the morning writing posts and responding to tweets in the late hours of the night. I’m doing it now because I NEED TO WRITE.
I started writing to make myself feel better. It was a way to get out what I couldn’t without a therapist. I started writing to get out the demons and thoughts that plagued me in the early hours of the morning.
Why I write now is because there are 100s of people who are going through the same thing that I am. I write so they can read these thoughts, these ideas. I write now so I can become a better writer in the future and help so many more people. I write now because there are people who cannot write or express their feelings. I write now because its improving my mental health and I know that’s a good thing. I write now, because what else would I do at 3 am.
