To write. Just write. - the little lioness

To write. Just write.

I used to put pen to paper, pouring out my thoughts. My raw emotions. Just train of thought stuff. Usually to poor Rish. Who read my letters for years and years.

SEPT2011 201

Now I’m much more able to ramble out my thoughts in person. To the right people. Sometimes I need to prepare, with a letter, a text message, or a look.

Sometimes I don’t realise what I’m thinking about until I start talking. Same with the writing. It doesn’t come out until I start.

I’m going well. This has enabled me to look at some things a little more. Think things through. Think about what I want and how that fits in with the rest of what’s going on for me now.

I still can’t just write any more. Not really. It doesn’t flow as well.

Maybe one day.

    It will come back…..and then you will not be able to STOP writing :)

    Sometimes it comes back when you least expect it. At least, that’s how it’s been for me this past year. Suddenly, I’m sitting at my computer and then there’s stream of consciousness, poetry, tangles words on the page, and I save them and hide them away, but feel better for it. xoxo

    Writing doesn’t have to seem like an uphill battle; YA author Maureen Johnson recently compared it to a fun run downhill… as you chase a wheel of cheese: http://bit.ly/tolj7S

    Sometimes it’s much easier to write than it is to talk – there’s no “listener” as such of whom you need to gauge their reaction. And it’s easier to form sensical thoughts, whereas I find I ramble and stop and start when faced with a person.

    Well, it all depends on the topic and the recipient, doesn’t it?
