the key word is love. you have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something to live for.” -ray bradbury
now i’m sure that’s a smart guy and all, but i disagree with him on this.
i don’t always love what i write. i write about hard things. probably more often than i write about things i love. this quote here makes more sense to me than that one up there.
“thoughts disentangle themselves when they pass through our fingertips.” (i can never remember who said that, but it’s good stuff)
i deal with things by writing about them. i’m not good at getting hard feelings out with spoken words, or even thinking to myself in my head.
so i write, and i write, and i write.
and eventually, i understand them. it’s like free therapy. half the time, i don’t even realize how much i feel about something until i start writing.
maybe this is why i know myself so well(see two posts ago). i teach myself about how i think by writing what i think.
and too often, i do this instead of sleeping. but tomorrow is monday, so for now it’s okay.
just a thought.
