Snug

Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?


Story is marked as mature.

Sometimes I imagine being wrapped up tightly and completely by denim or canvas, enveloping me entirely. Bye, baby bunting. And then I would be stored away for a rainy day.

In light of the last one and the potential trigger warnings on the tags, perhaps I was wrong. A month late feels like too much but I feel compelled to ask if you're all right. Without the tags, I didn't take this as a sinister piece, even with the second line. I thought of it more like there's a time and place for everything combined with the idea of a bear hibernating or some such. I know that I'm not fully available to my friends and family all the time.

Oh my gosh Robert I'm very sorry to have left you hanging.

I have not been very well, to answer your question, no. Quite bad emotionally and mentally, and I had a couple of rounds of surgery as well, but for me, the mental stuff was the most notable and the most hampering.

I guess the social anxiety has been the main reason I haven't been on here, but also, I have had very few inspired moments ever since last September when the play I was producing at school began rehearsals.

I have two or three plays on back burners as well as a big song and a lot of other unfinished projects, but I can't get a word in edgewise...not because of others' interruptions as much as because I just can't find any words to write.

I get that. I come and go myself both on here and in real life. Not trying to rush you into working if you're not ready but I believe that you have a voice and a unique point of view to this life that we're all living.
