I am currently doing a short writing course called “Unlocking your Creativity”. This course is designed to have me stop thinking so much about why I shouldn’t write or can’t write and just do it. Am loving it so far and here is a piece I have written as part of the week one exercises. I am sharing it here so that you get to see the progression of my writing as I learn more and write more. Enjoy!
I can’t remember anything. Well, that’s not completely true. I do remember bits, just snapshots really. It is like my memory is a series of odd photographs (yes I did say odd, not old – although some of them are old too). They are all out of sequence, flash into my head whenever they like and make absolutely no sense.
A few minutes ago I saw a small girl, standing alone on stage with a microphone then click, she’s gone, replaced by this hot young guy with the most wicked blue eyes I have ever seen, but click again and he’s gone (a shame really as I could do with more shots of him). Then it is all dark for while and I am left wondering when the next shots will appear – 5 minutes, 20 minutes or will it be hours this time. Oh, how I want them back, I hate the darkness.
The doctors don’t know what is wrong with me. They can’t explain how a normal, healthy 23rd old can just wake up one day like this. Nor can they tell me if this is my new forever.
Can somebody please tell me whatever happened to happily ever after?
