The Art of Streaming

Sometimes your thoughts get all confused and that’s okay but let’s hope it doesn’t last heaps long because we just want to move on with our lives but we can’t when we’re busy thinking the same thing over and over.

I’m listening to this song over and over and I know that in two days I’ll hate it because I haven’t taken a moment to listen to anything else, but I know that if I stop I’ll have to listen to my thoughts.

And now I feel like I have nothing to say on my blog though I’m sure I would if I would stop listening to this song over and over. But I don’t want to stop listening to this song over and over because it’s really good and I feel understood even though I know that’s not really how it works. Sometimes I wish it were how it works, though. Sometimes it’d be nice to be anonymously  understood, but instead we have to share our hearts with people we know in the hopes that those people will take good care of our hearts.

Above is what’s called a ‘stream of consciousness’, which is where you write without interrupting. You don’t stop to think about what you’re writing and you don’t go back and edit it. You just write uninterrupted for however long you want and get the thoughts out. It’s said to help with writer’s block. It’s just one continuous flow, or stream, of thought.

It’s a pretty cool exercise, actually; I enjoy doing it, though I don’t do it often. This is the first time I’ve done it since high school english.

Well, there you go campers. Go and deal with your writer’s block! Hoorah!
