writing is


I know this first hand. When it gets a bit uncomfortable, which happens often, doing something else, of equal importance, of course, can take your mind off of the uncomfortable process for a few… years. Excuses you tell yourself have the same effect. It’s a brilliant way to let yourself off the hook. In my experience the itching doesn’t stop, you know the itching from having a story you’ve decided to transform into writing. The only scratch that helps is the sound of a pen scratching the paper, or that of your fingers dancing over the keyboard.

I have a number of unleashed stories within, I’ve done everything in my power to avoid unleashing them, now the itching has become intense. There’s only one thing to do about it: I must challenge myself to do the challenging work.

This is a fraction of what this blog is about,

the main purpose is to explore the many faces of the writing life
