On the Origins of my Insane Writing Phase: by means of Medium.com

Loose Cannon started out as two words.

Then, I figured once I got there I would make it into a sentence.

Since I got that far, I figured I might as well keep on writing.

So then I wrote a paragraph. All for no particular reason.

From the paragraph I decided that, hey, I’ve already gone this far, might as well just keep on writin’.

So then I wrote a story. When I got tired, I slept. When I got hungry, I ate, and when I had to go…you know…I went.

I wrote clear to a Medium Publication. All for no particular reason at all.

I’d think a lot. About the economy, tech, careers, but most of all I would just try and make people laugh. I tried to make people laugh a lot.

“Why are you writing?” they would always ask.

“Are you writing for world peace?”

“Are you writing for women’s rights?”

“Are you writing for the environment?”

They just couldn’t believe that someone would do all that writing, all for no particular reason at all.

“Why are you doing this?”

I just felt like writing!

For some reason what I was doing seemed to make sense to people.

So I got some company.

After that, I got more company.

Then, even more people joined in.

Some people later told me that it made some people laugh.

Now, I don’t know anything about that.

Some of those people even asked me if I could help them out.

Anyway, like I was saying I had a lot of company.

My momma always said that you have to put the past behind you before you can move on.

And I think that is what my writing is all about.
