Stationary

I’m the first to admit I probably own too much stationary, but then, to a writer, I don’t really think there is such a thing as too much stationary. Non-writers in my life often don’t agree with me, especially when it comes to my notebook collection. I’m happy to agree to disagree. Stopping isn’t something that’s likely to happen. They’re something I need, for my job and my hobby, so I’m going to keep buying more. All I have to do is make sure I keep them in order.

At school there was always one path to be taken – finish our GCSEs, go to college, and then move on to university. Getting away from school, for me, was wonderful. I’m not going to say I hated school, because I didn’t. There were a number of subjects I truly enjoyed, English being one of them (in part thanks to one of the best teachers I’ve ever had – Mrs Ziegler), but there were far too many things I wasn’t enjoying. One of the big ones was having to learn for exams. I’ve always been pretty good at exams, so in some of my subjects I definitely got better grades than I would have done if there was more coursework involved. Coursework was one of my least favourite things.

How I Write

I’m not a planner. I literally can’t plan, because, for some reason, my mind thinks of a story as being done if it’s been plotted out. There’s nothing I can do to convince it otherwise, so I just write. Most of the time I have no idea where the story is going. I always start with an idea. Some of them are awake ideas. I get them from prompts, from images, from songs, and numerous other things. More of them are asleep ideas. I have the most active dreams, and a lot of the time they get turned into stories. Occasionally they’re a little too much to turn into stories. I have a whole list of things I’ve got from dreams still to work on. If you want an example then there was a dream I had about stepping through a door onto another world, and on that world it was winter all the time. That moment turned into a whole collection of stories – the World Walkers.

Over the years I’ve read about devaluing myself, and my writing. I’ve thought long and hard about what I want from this site, because there are so many different paths I could have taken, and I did take a couple of them before I made certain decisions based on what was most important to me. That’s why I created a place like this in the first place. It was somewhere I could focus on doing what was important to me. About a year ago I made the choice that I wanted everything here to be free to read. I’m not going to change my mind about this any time soon, and there’s multiple reasons for that. One of those reasons are certain laws that have been put into place that made selling digitally much harder than it once was.

To be honest I don’t know where to really begin with this, but it’s something I want to talk about. For a long time I’ve dealt with anxiety. It’s one of those things you do, mostly, get used to, but that doesn’t make it an easy thing to deal with. Especially at the moment. Recently the anxiety has become more of an issue, with it affecting me on an almost daily basis, with today being one of those days. Working out what could be causing it can be difficult, because there are often times when there doesn’t seem to be a reason.
