Disclaimer.

As I said to a friend of mine last night, I should come with a disclaimer.  So here it is for the world to see:  CAUTION.  This girl will write about you.

I always try to be as honest as I can be when I write short stories but it needs to be taken into consideration, the old adage, “Show me an objective piece of writing and I will show you a blank piece of paper”  (Proper referencing unknown.)  There are many things that inspire me.  John Mayer’s music is sublimely calming at the moment, I find my Australian Literature unit a source of no end of amusement, and I really enjoy reading the old classics.  But what inspires me most are the people in my life.  I may never publish it, but I will write about you.  And you should learn to deal with that.

I mean it as a complement a lot of the time.  Other times it’s a form of self reflection.  Mostly it’s just the way I process the things that are happening to me.
