Have you ever been lost for words and then suddenly ~ *poof* ~ there's a flood?
Sometimes I'm so overwhelmed with emotion that I feel the need to express myself on paper. I find solace in writing.
At times I use a light-hearted approach which can mask or overshadow more pressing issues while, other times ~ I like to add unpredictable twists to my plots.
Metaphorically speaking, I see untold stories as festering wounds that need to be remedied through expression ~ Must be the nurse in me!
I have always been comforted by words that capture and isolate runaway emotions ~ Emotions originating from my book of life.
I enjoy reading novels by Virgina Wolfe, Daphne Du Maurier, Jeanette Winterson and Chinua Achebe (to name a few)
