Would You Like Words With That?

Today was a day like any other. I ran some errands, ran after my kids and then met up with a friend to go for a nice walk along the beautiful foreshore. Ok, great. And…?

And all I could think about where WORDS. All sorts of words. Adjectives. Nouns. Verbs. Adverbs. Putting them in sentences. Putting them in poems. All. Freaking. Day.

I was making dinner. With words. I had a shower. With words. Brushed my teeth….. Yes. Thats right. With those never-ending words. Swirling. Twirling. See….I cant even make a proper sentence without adding some fandangled sparkle to it.

The thing is though, it’s not like these words are making a lot of sense. Yes, I am writing this post. But I wasnt thinking about words in a blogging sense. It’s more like word overload. Word overdose. That no matter where I looked, what I said, where I went. Today I od’ed on the English language.

The annoying thing is that it wasn’t even a lightbulb moment. No inspiration, no feeling of ‘I must write this down now!’. Nothing urgent like that. It’s been more of a constant stream of words rushing through one end of my brain to the other, making no sense whatsoever. I’m not even sure I have a point with tonight’s post. I guess I just needed to get the words OUT……

    Points are over-rated, haha. Betcha felt good just writing it down.


    • Oh I tell you – it was a nightmare. Random words just going over and over and over in my head. I guess it’s probably because I havent sat down to write in a few days, too busy with kid stuff, so it ends up accumulating and it needs to just. get. out! 🙂


  2. ha ha…sounds like one of my OCD moments 😉


  3. I get that. I will sometimes get phrases stuck in my head for hours on end. It doesn’t belong there, it serves no purpose. Though sometimes, under examination it does become somewhat relevant. Perhaps your subconscious is trying to suggest something. What, I cannot say. But there is the possibility.


    • I think my subconscious is trying to tell me something too, completely agree with you there. I am coming up with a few more story ideas though so maybe it has something to do with that. I’m willing myself to dream of the answer but nothing has come to me yet. I say that with all seriousness!
