Actually, since I was a child, I love to write a diary. The most stimulating times of writing is, when I was starting to fell in love for the first time. It was when I was aged 23 years old, it was my first love. When I came back to Bandung a few months ago, I still found those that diary of mine that wrote at the time. There are funny stories and sad one. Even though it was old diary, when I read it, it still tucked away some silly things that make me laugh.
Not long after my first love ended, I started writing a blog. In the past I did not understand what a blog is. But it turns out, there was a lot of people who have blogs. Well there, I started to fall in love more with the art of writing.
Menulis memang tidak mudah. Apalagi kalau ditambah kita juga tidak tahu apa yang mau kita tulis. Ada beberapa orang yang tidak dapat menuangkan secara verbal maupun tulisan. Saya saja yang masih mampu menulis, masih dapat mengalami depressi atau stress, apalagi mereka yang tidak dapat menuangkan dengan cara apapun.
I think writing can be a mirror to one's personality. For me writing is a romantic thing, of course it depends on the language that we used. But on average, each person that can write (to write anything) they usually had a romantic side that's not owned by everyone. Because writing sometimes should come from the heart, and it's honest.
I sometimes can't understand when someone asks my opinion about if the authors of the news is romantic or not, especially if it's a hoax. But IMHO whatever the writing is, whether it's a hoax or not, at least they have some kind of an imaginations to create that story. I cannot judge them right or not. Because everything that's written by someone (whoever they are), must have a purposes and reasons which makes the writer writing it. Right or wrong depends on the eye of the beholder.
So.. balik lagi ke hal menulis, saya seringkali saat sedang melakukan apapun tiba-tiba ingin menulis tentang a-b-c-d. Bahkan terkadang saat sedang mandi, saya mulai terpikirkan untuk menulis sesuatu. Entah itu quote atau puisi atau tulisan apapun. Saya tidak berharap orang-orang menyukai tulisan saya di blog ini. Tapi setidaknya saya menulis apa yang ada di hati dan kepala saya.
Just recently I made a quote about what is writing, IMHO. When I made the screenshot of my quote into my LINE messenger display picture, my best friend Evelyn says "why does it makes me sad ya..?". HAHAHAHA ... Well, maybe the soul of a Scorpio like me, is very mellow and fragile. But that's a Scorpio women for you, most part of her is a tomboy and the other is a feminim.
There are some writer’s quotes and poems that I like. Beside the author Nikita Gill, there's also Shakespeare, JmStorm, r.n Sin, Clarry Marie, Kahlil Gibran, Rumi, Segovia Amil, and Christy Ann Martine. And for local Indonesian writers, I like the poetry from AADC2 movie which is M. Aan Mansyur writings, Chairil Anwar and also W. S Renda. I'll try to discuss about them in my future posts.

Kalau dari lokal Indonesia, saya suka dengan penulis puisi untuk Film AADC2 M. Aan Mansyur dan Chairil Anwar, juga W. S Rendra. Tentang mereka saya membahas di post saya berikutnya ya.
Bagi saya, menulis benar-benar sangat penting ketika hati, pikiran, dan mulut kita tidak dapat mengeluarkan sepatah kata pun. Terlebih bagi seorang Scorpio yang sebenarnya kami ini lebih banyak memendam, ini (menulis) sangatlah penting. Menulis bukan berarti orang tersebut pintar, tetapi setidaknya mereka cukup jujur dengan apa yang mereka pikirkan dan rasakan. Terkadang membaca emosi atau perasaan seseorang dari tulisannya, akan dapat membuka karakteristik orang tersebut sedikit demi sedikit. :p Paling susah buat kita itu kan jujur terhadap pikiran dan perasaan kita sendiri. *wink*
So ... for those who cannot express their feelings verbally, you can start now to learn to write. At least it will enable you to express what's in your heart, as on my case, it was quite a relief, and also not mention that this is a very positive activity, especially if your writing can inspire a lot of people. I also did not write all of my writings on the blog, I still have a personal diaries which were kept very privately. LOL
