Maybe I am a writer.
But alas, my laziness!
I have the urge to write
a spillage of thoughts
where my mind is the cup runneth over
and I must
catch these thoughts,
every last drip,
before they are gone.

But that, you see, is work.
The effort of seeking bowls
and towels
to capture these drops
is great
and so I sit here,
my cup runneth over,
and I will each drop to remain.

who gets me? any of you ever creative and too lazy? x]
laziness, passiveness.
ah, the effort it takes to find a pen, and a paper, and the strain of deep thinking!

McDevitt - thank you! yeah, I was working off this little image I had in mind. Believe it or not, I actually got this picture when I was in my bed at night so I ended up writing this on my phone as a text so I wouldn't have to get up and, ya know, write xP

I feel your a great writer with a powerful ability. I think that your laziness shouldnt be the main factor of your defeat. I loved when you related rain drops as your thoughts and idead, and a cup as your mind captureing thoes thoughts and putting them on paper. I think that the story was well written. Great story and you will be a great writter.
