    And that's the perfect word, "succinct".

    And I do try to be succinct in spite of being told I am incomprehensible.

    I find I do actually like my tummy. I don't know why. But its a nice tummy - a bit like the tummy of a teddy bear.

Even the most creative and original art had to be inspired by a collection of memories and information. You can't force something from nothing, your head would explode! So fill your head with experience, knowledge, advice or random crap.
    I think that's the secret - to have nothing in my head, so my imagination can have free rein.

    Indeed if I wish to suspend your disbelief, I must first suspend mine.

    So I fully imagine something then just write down what I see.

    The soft stuffy fluff inside a teddy bear's tummy, or the warm furry fuzz outside?

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    And it is very nice to have you respond to me, just as others like you to respond to them.

    Responsiveness is a gift, and it seems you are gifted.

    I must admit I am mildly annoyed with you - why don't you just look into yourself and write what you see?
    I'm sure you wouldn't 'write what you see' if you gave your posts a moment's worth of thought before hitting the 'submit' button. Writer's block would seem like something much more common to you then.

    Feeling the Fear

    Of course, if I thought about what I was to write, I wouldn't write anything.

    Fortunately, I don't write the words rather the words write me.

    I write down one word and listen to what is says, then I write down that. Then the two words have a conversation and I listen to their conversation.

    Just as you and I are having a conversation and I listen to that.

    And the essence of conversation is spontaneity.

    But if we were to think before we converse, we would kill spontaneity.

    Of course spontaneity is frightening, and to forestall the fear some of us think before we converse.

    But if we feel the fear, spontaneity becomes possible.
