I write things down. Obviously, although they don’t all appear on the internet. When something gets to me, I write about it. Whenever I read about that as a stress release type of thing it always says that writing something gets it out your head and makes it become physical and therefore you have a type of control over it. Well I write so I don’t forget. I’ve never liked losing things ever since I was really young and wouldn’t throw away sweet wrappers, whether that thing be a thought or something physical. Maybe that’s triggered by my Ascroft gene which doesn’t allow me to throw anything away, fearing that one day it may become of use.
I also don’t necessarily write purely in prose, which I guess is an admission of writing poem / song type things, which isn’t too much of a surprise really when you consider I am attempting to learn two instruments, albeit unsuccessfully.
Anyway, I read something that meritted me to grab a pencil and add some scribbles to something I’d written a good while ago (I’m talking years) when something similar happened. And then comes a song on iTunes that I downloaded about two months ago which is virtually exactly the same and I swear I’d never heard it before.
You may also have noticed that I like to talk around issues, being vague enough as not to give too much away but leaving enough there for someone to ask what’s up even if I don’t want to say.
