Anyone ever write something, then read it later and be frightened by what you wrote? Almost as if the words take on a mind of their own and create something you did not intend?

Yup. I've done it before, just never publicly. But apparently I've created a monster in my own head, and now I let it escape via 'pen and quill' from time to time. I wrote a piece, not posted here, and now in reading it, I wonder where all the darkness and desperation comes from. Certainly not from inside me.....
Maybe I'm channeling (not really channeling, just creatively channeling) some of the pain and anger at the crimes and evils perpetuated on the world from my 'day job' (911 Operator). Its been 8 1/2 years and maybe I've developed a voice for the countless victims? or maybe I have an overactive imagination AND an overactive ego?

Thoughts on those ramblings?

It happens
My mood is so much the way I write that it scares me at times.

A few months ago I wrote that shock me. Where did it all come from? but I know it was from inner confusion. I lok back at these stories and understand myself better. So it is all wonderful to me.

Hi Jewell. I can related to this. Often I have written something, had it simmering in Lit. Just before it is published I go read it again. At times I feel something tugging at me to come back and remove it from everyone's sight. I wonder where the hell did this come from? Where did all this angst, or lust come from?

It all boils down to experiences. Whether they are yours, others, but certainly have made their way into your subconcious. What a wonderful thing to have, to have your MEMORY.....which we take for granted. So you use it, let it all out, the those creative rivers and streams flow into the world.

You are a good writer Jewell. So you use whatever means you have. This is a good bloggity blog,,,,,has me thinking of all those neat phrases I "I write with your soul in the palm of my hand".........

Always write.....

Thanks for the comments.... I suppose we ALL have little demons burning around inside us, and writing them out at least GETS them out. Better than letting them spin their wheels around in my head.

I do think that I am going to work on finding the little "angels" that are flitting around in there too, and try to find something positive and uplifting to write about too. I thought "In the Beginning" was positive, I certainly FELT happy about it, but in reading it, maybe I caught a little too much longing in there??

Oh look at me. Now I'm commenting on my OWN work. Seriously. Someone get me something for my swollen ego.

:-) Again, thanks Darlene and "greatsmile" for your thoughts!
