If you’ve a tendency to over analyze your feelings, why you feel so intensely and why you have to analyze that feeling…well, you get where this is going.
You’ve likely always journaled at some point in your life. You have old diaries or various journals dotted about with your feelings and general observations written inside, or ideas you’ve had.

When you haven’t written in a while you feel the lack, and when you finally do, you feel happy and free.
You need lots of time to sit and think. You prefer to do it solo, and you like to think of it as an Olympic sport. You enjoy it and intentionally set yourself the task of “thinking”.
You believe all the best writers have to suffer. If you haven’t suffered, really what is there to write about? You want to share the human experience, but you often feel in order for people to be happy, they have to have suffered. It’s part of the experience.
You prefer being alone in order to process your experience so you can write about it. It’s difficult to process something if you have to experience it with a person first.
