So you may have noticed that I read. A lot. Roughly a book per day, very occasionally it takes me longer. And we all know that I write, it’s why I’m here. What you may not know is how I live amidst all of this literature.
I live everyday in a storm of emotions, many of which aren’t even mine. I fall in love with the characters, I feel what they feel. I feel what I write. If I didn’t know that most of my emotional turbulence was borrowed, I would probably have myself committed. I have an emotional response to how the words are put together on the page too.
Today, I want to know about you. Artists see people for the shapes that they are made of; writers see their words. Show me your words. Tell me how you live. What do you live for?
