am i writing or is it writing me?


I wrote today while they were gone and the house was more than quiet, it was empty, vacant like a bomb had gone off somewhere and people were extinct. Even the soi dogs had slipped into the nooks of gnarled trees to escape the noon heat. I forgot that sometimes I didn’t write because it hurt to write.

writing is the teeth that gnaw on my bones.

    Yeah, sometimes it’s a pleasurable task. Sometimes.

  2. Hm, sometimes I feel that if it doesn’t hurt then I’m not doing it right (write). 😛

  3. Always therapeutic though. You are lucky to have some quiet time to write on the weekends. The weekends are always the hardest time for me because the kids are always around disturbing the creative process. I look forward to weekdays when I’m alone at work, ha, ha!
