It’s as if, with every time my mind drifts off, words just start flying left and right. But I can never form the words into actual sentences.
My mind races a mile a minute with words, sentences, and ideas flying in all directions. Sometimes I believe that I can’t keep up with all the things I think of. This only started recently, and I don’t know if I should be worried or just embrace how my mind is slowly adapting to the fact that I’m becoming a writer.
Throughout my life, I have struggled with writing. Forming complete sentences is one of the biggest things I struggle with. Having words flying back and forth in my head makes it that much harder to focus, especially when it’s time to sit down and write.
Typically, the words flow out fairly easily, but my mind is always throwing different words at me even though they have nothing to do with the story I’m writing.
Even when I’m laying in bed at night trying to go to sleep, words keep flowing, giving me numerous ideas of things to write about.
One thing I have noticed recently is that none of the words match up with each other; they are all different. I would’ve thought that if I have words bouncing around my head, they would all be about one specific topic.
But no, they’re all separate thoughts with different stories behind them.
Even when I’m trying to focus on one specific topic, the thousands of words racing through my head make it almost impossible to accomplish the task at hand.
Initially, I just assumed this was a sign that I’m on the right track by focusing my time on writing, but, with time, I realized that it had nothing to do with that. The words are just there. I can’t get rid of them—I would if I could.
Perhaps it might be time to embrace the fact that I have all these words guiding me down the right path. It opens my eyes to new opportunities for stories I would’ve never thought of.
I am happy that I have these words to open the door for new creative possibilities, but I wish they would all be based on one topic. It’s hard to decipher what goes with what word, but that’s what will push me creatively and hopefully make my writing better while captivating new ideas.
