If I'm trying to write, there appears a barren nothingness.
~Carrie Latet

  4. The boyfriend hates me. If I have a thought in the middle of the night I'll wake him up and tell him about it. If I dont, I'll forget it. Even writing it down tends to be nonsense the next morning. I have to talk about the idea to cement it in my mind.
