Talent(less) I wish I could take your plaudit But I just write what comes to me My inability to self edit Laid bare for all to see Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related 16 thoughts on “Talent(less)” Add yours I know what you mean!! 🤗 The inability to self-edit makes me annoyed at myself sometimes, when I feel like I’ve been too reactionary. But I think what people mean, is as much about the fact that you didn’t have to write stuff publicly, but by doing so you’ve given them something they can relate to. As far as how you write, it does feel weird to take credit for something if it comes naturally. It feels more appropriate to take credit for things you had to specifically work for. It’s the people that really show their emotions that I’m drawn to, whatever those emotions are.

The overall sequence of decisions and actions that it took. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply You make a lot of sense my friend 🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person Really! Cool 🙂. 💙 LikeLiked by 1 person Thank you!
