I had a flash - a vision, if you will - the boy was walking across the school courtyard and the new girl at the school spotted him and thought he was cute. They get paired up for an english assignment and end up falling in love with each other. The vision continued and I just got my phone out and started writing. Now I have a short film. It's just crazy how something like that can happen when I'm just sitting in the hairdressing chair listening to the person next to me complain about having to fly in economy instead of business class.
A few people in my life have told me that I'm a writer. I tend to think I just ramble in written word form and most of the time can't stop. Often I write out a whole paragraph of a thought or opinion of mine and then immediately delete it because it just rambly nonsense that no one cares about. I want to try to focus my words and creative energy and actually follow through with one of my ideas. I often find it really hard to write something objective that I haven't experienced or that isn't based around true events that have happened in my life as I feel like I'm unable to flesh it out and make it real. I don't want to write something fake. If I ever publish something that is based around personal experience then I know it was real, the last thing I would want is to be called phoney or unrealistic.
I want to make a change. My goal for the rest of the year is to not be afraid. If someone asks me to go on an adventure with them I'm going to say yes - fear be damned. I'm going to try to be more active and less self-conscious when talking to people.
Also, You should go and listen to Changes by David Bowie, it's been stuck in my head since this morning. ♥
