Great post here! Reminds me a lot of myself and some of the thought processes that I have when trying to think up writing gold as opposed to when the gold finds me when not even trying to be creative.

Waiting Outside of Parnassus

This doesn’t happen to me anymore.  But through my latter years of high school and my first few years of college, the one time I was guaranteed to be inspired was when I was driving.  I’d switch lanes and suddenly a line pop into my head.  With one hand, I’d pull a pen from my purse, and whenever I stopped at a red light I scribbled, as quickly as I could, on my arm, praying that the light would not change.  At those moments, I seemed to catch all the green lights.  When I arrived home, I transcribed the words scrawled across my skin, desperate to find that spark I felt when I was getting off the freeway.  What I was able to save seemed to die on the page, in that rush to catch the muse’s words I missed something and that magic was lost.

For some reason he’s male because it feels right. This is not the time to interrogate my instincts, so male he shall be. If later he feels insistently feminine, I’ll switch him.

In any case, his gender is insignificant compared to his problem.

This problem is the touch-paper waiting to be lit and I understand it very clearly. At the moment…

I have had the unfortunate task of having to mourn the loss of my father recently, and then two months ago I lost a long time friend and brother from another mother after he commit suicide. Shortly after that I ran into a spot of trouble at work and had to prove my innocence after a disgruntled car park attendent decided to tell malicious lies about how was supposed to have hit him with my car no less than 5 times…ridiculous I know!  (more…)
