A few nights ago as I am laying in bed with only a sheet to protect me from the rolling chill of an eerie evening I felt my stomach drop. Coming from somewhere in the dark blanket of night that was encompassing my room I heard an echo of footsteps walk across my floor.
The noise escaped from the shadows which were crawling over one another in a frantic slither that makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand to attention, this is the moment when fear paralyzed me.
I try not to breathe too heavily, hoping that I am invisible to this creature of night I have seemingly conjured up from the corners of my mind. My eyes stay open even though I am telling them to close. they search throughout the shadows, seeing faces and eyes that I attempt to tell myself aren't really there.
Born from this fear, these moments that petrify me are stories that I can tell. A monster that I had yet to meet (and don't know if I want to), magic that could save me, an mayhem that is just waiting to unfold.
This is one of the things that I find to be enchanting about being a writer. I get to create worlds and creatures and lives that are desperately waiting to be lived. Those nights when I watch one horror movie too many, or when I hear a noise I couldn't have possibly just heard my mind instantly weaves together a million possibilities that ignite an urge to write about what is going through my head (if I make it through the night that is...;).
This past week has been a crazy one, one of my best friends Sophie and I were almost abducted by aliens (true story bro( life sure likes throwing those curve-balls at me) ), I sent off over eight submissions and I worked at both of my jobs, and through my hectic mess of a life I still found the time to write some how.
And luckily I did otherwise I would have most likely have lost my mind by now.. Or have I already?
I feel like I might be rambling so I will let you all get back to your own crazy hectic lives!
See you all in the future.
