I, absolutely with out a doubt, suffer from "mind-speak disease", meaning that I tend to be one of those annoying people that says what I'm thinking while I'm thinking it. If you also have it then you know what I'm talking about...hearing yourself saying something while screaming in your head "SHUT UP! WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU??" then casting out the line to try and reel the words back in before they fall upon horrified ears ;) Fortunately, for my and everyone else's sanity, I've learned to curb a lot of what I say, though I still find myself wedging my foot in my mouth quite a bit of the time (shoe horns come in handy for those types of situations ;) ).
Writing is kind of my vent for the wayward thoughts that I DO manage to keep from tripping off of my tongue, and, surprisingly, there are a lot of them. I am not a great writer, but there's too much responsibilty that comes of being great, so I'll settle for just being entertaining :) . It's therapy and it works ( and it's A LOT cheaper than a psychologist ). I'm the first to admit that I'm a drama-queen, though as a teen I suffered from that almost required teen-angst that we all seem to go through at some point. As such, most of my "early" works had that dark, near delusional edge that troubled teens adopt so well.
I'm happy to say that I've mellowed over the past few years, though I still appreciate the occasional deranged write that escapes me at times. My style seems to change as I get older, in fact, it has changed quite a bit since I first began writing even here thanks to the inspiration I get from some of the fantastic poets on The Den (and I'm not playing the "naming names" game because I love too many writers here to list all of them). Though the styles change, every post is still a little piece of me.
