I’ve realised after a lifetime of looking, looking, looking, that I’m not (just) a sticky-beak who has to notice everything, I’m a writer who has to observe all the ‘goings-on’ around them.
What I was really looking for was to be inspired- to be a better person, to make me go ‘Ahuh, I see’, to build me into a better person.
And as a writer, these become inspiration for poetry, essays, articles, short or long stories.
Watch and listen to anyone or anything- teachers, parents, strangers, events, books, art, movies/TV etc.
Take note of how people do things; what they know, how they deal with a situation, how they speak, or interact, everything, everything, everything.
Watch, listen, absorb.
Be a sticky-beak!!
Thanks for reading :))
