Get back on the horse, they said. It’s the key to success.

Don’t know about the success thing, but it sure is key to being a writer. Pen to paper, keyboard to screen, all that jazz. You have to write to be a writer and that’s all there is to that.

Is it messy sometimes? Sure it is. Sometimes it’s a train wreck or a volcanic eruption or that freaking girl from that freaking movie puking pea soup everywhere because she’s possessed. But sometimes it’s beautiful or moving or cathartic.

Bummer is you don’t know what’s what until you’re done. How ya liking your pea soup now?


Linda hosts Stream of Consciousness Saturdays. This week’s prompt is “key.” Use it as a noun, a verb, or use it metaphorically. Have fun!
