Simon, thank you for coming by, and for your comments on "My Heart's In Scotland Still"! Noticing that you are from Scotland, check a little further down the list to "The Green Hills Of Scotland", which I think you will like also.
hahaha to the Doug observation. He is kinda like that, huh? I think all the characters are great. It really is just a well written show with memorable dialogue. As well, the way they mix music with meaning into every episode is brilliant.
i Don't remember most of what you wrote, but i do remember the part about rhyming. For what i think was a little over a year i started writing Victorian-type poetry. Y'know, thee thy thou, oh-why-did-you-die, blah blah blah. Well anyway, it was fun for a while but then it just got old.
Guess you could compare writing to sculpting. You know, forming something out of a block of raw material (ie, emotions or whatever they're called). Most of the time--especially when you've got writer's block--it's sort of like grinding your own teeth while they're still in your mouth. Especially if English is not your native language (it is not mine).
Isn't that funny, though? Writing is so much easier when you're heart-broken or angst-ing or sleepy.
