I didn't even know I could write!
Isn't that funny? No one thinks they can write.
Well, no one thinks they can write well.
Actually, no one thinks they can write well *enough*
I suppose there's something about exposing your thoughts on paper
for the whole world to read that is just so intimidating
As Hemingway once said, "Write drunk, edit sober"
They do call alcohol "liquid courage"
While it's a disgusting habit, it does have a way of loosening the tongue
loosening the mind
The thoughts flow freely and you feel as though every word
is an emotion
and you smile
because suddenly everything you write is okay and there is no room for judgement!
No room for feeling insecure!
You write and you write and you write and it all pours out
like the gin from the bottle
and as the gin flows so do your thoughts until you can write no more
and you fall asleep in a content slumber
a dreamless slumber
dreamless because the thoughts that plagued you have now been exorcised
they are now on paper, on Microsoft Word doc,
and they can not hurt you there.
