Thoughts on Writing
Before I decided to be a musician, I wanted to be a writer. I always hoped to someday publish a book or a collection of poems.
I have so many ideas for stories.
But I don't want to write them...
Most of my ideas come from real-life experiences... and in order to write them I will have to remember them.
Writing means to relive the pain... to relive the memories - memories I've spent so long bottling up and hiding away, trying to forget.
Many of the world's greatest writers drew inspiration from real-life. No wonder most of them suffered from depression and alcoholism - their entire lives were spent with memories...
Memories are dangerous.
Writing scares me because memories scare me.
