When the words won’t stop pestering me, or they are words no one else will listen to or can be said out loud, paper becomes my best friend. My confident. The words must come out in some form or nothing else will get done, let alone with any kind of efficiency or quality. The only thing one must be wary of are those who cannot keep thier mittens to themselves. The ones who must know everything, cannot stand it when something is kept from them, never heard the phrase, “Curiosity killed the cat.” Then the paper you trusted so well becomes the betrayer. Yes the paper maybe be the only one who listens, but it can also speak, and once words are spoken they can never be taken back.

Thank you. 🙂
I know exactly what you mean 🙂 I feel the same way a lot of the time 🙂
I really like this post, and it reminds me of a quote which I read a few years ago, which resonates 🙂
Jules Renard — ‘Writing is a way of talking without being interrupted.’
I hope you have a wonderful day 🙂 ❤

As the saying goes words once said or written down can come back and bite you .
