the reasons why

today, i heard someone ask themself the question: why don’t you write?

  • because i am scared of my own writing and its reflections mirroring me to me.
  • the idea seems and feels hard.
  • i make it harder by refraining, running from it.
  • i have issues with the .doc format of MSWord. and now with (though, wordpress + email windows have been inviting mediums)
  • procrastination.
  • it is easier to read. or so i tell myself.
  • traumas that linger from the 3rd and 4th grades.
  • lack of practice, practice space.
  • running from the people who have nudged me to write more.
  • because it has not been the time for me. check that, had not been…

now, is that time. morning pages and more.
