  • It's hard to write.

    It feels like I have all these words in my mind. All these stories I want to tell. But I don't know where to start or how to put it all together. Sometimes it flows. Other times, when I really want it to flow, it stays stuck somewhere between my fingers and my keyboard. I stare at the letters and wonder how to form my words. My thoughts. They're all there though, I think. But they wont come out.

    Not yet anyway.
