That’s story writing for you.
I started writing because it came easily to me, my grammar had its feet in all the right places and I found it cathartic.. For someone who’s rather particular about organization and planning, my writing tends to be freewheeling. And sometimes, the wheel runs out of sight.
A few lines of prose or poem would be just the cure to a hormone-riddled head that was only halfway through making sense of all around it.
As a kid, I simply felt and wrote. That’s what people do, I’d think. But as years rolled by and I treated myself to written work of much greater complexity, befuddlement was a constant companion.

I am reading and reviewing like a madman since it allows me to actively observe the book’s content and judge it, than simply stuff myself with what my eyes can steal.
This is not even a proper blog post, but hey, see my forehead crumple like paper.
