midnight musings

Saturday, July 20

-I love being so excited about a new part of a story you're writing that you can't sleep at night.
-I hate being so excited about a new part of your story that you can't even write it down because thoughts are coming too quickly and too powerfully.
-sometimes i get scared to write because I don't want the first draft to be bad. so I just don't write.
-that is no good.
-memories sting in the best of ways, don't they?
-as cliche as it is, I adore Hamlet
-I can't decide if my master's degree should focus on creative writing or literature.
-that scares me.
-when it rains i feel more focused
-when it rains i feel more lazy and ready to cuddle into being unproductive.
-i like sitting in empty bath tubs after the water has drained. The porcelain stays warm long after the water has left.
-when smells sneak up on you, nostalgia burrowing into your soul, you go numb for a moment. 
-i love going numb.

  1. sometimes when i'm stressed or whatever, i just go sit in the empty bath tub. it's always so cool and quiet

    1. I do that too. I do my best thinking in my bath tub, empty or full. I am literally in my bath tub right now. It's empty and I'm just wrapped in a towel writing away.


  2. I love this collection of thoughts. Just found your blog via as far as the eye can see and I'm so glad that I did.

    Also, Stephanie, I love that advice and am really going to keep it in mind for stressful times.

    1. Thanks for the blog love! Your blog is amazing and I was seriously so honored to be mentioned on as far as the eye can see. Seriously my favorite blog.

  3. How weird is it that smells do that do us? Just take us straight into another time. Rain helps me focus too. What is that?


Thank you for your words; they light a fire in my heart. You are lovely.
