Books were never the far corners of the garden for me. They didn't provide the warm hum of somewhere nobody could reach me. The words didn't trickle behind my ears or reveal perfectly uniformed beads in spiralled paragraphs like only the spiders could. I didn't read because, unlik most children, I wasn't transported by the words to a faraway land in the way that 'only books can'.
Now it's different. I'm not flung headfirst into a mist of punctuation, no. Now I use the words to fill my ears like cotton wool. The world I'm in consists of four glass walls that muffle the sounds of the world, but ultimately, books can't shelter me from the rain.
making some headspace.

For some reason, everything you write genuinely scares me XD I challenge you to write a happy thing, before I start avoiding you! Having said that, you really good at writing! :D

Hah, I don't think I'm capable xD I read stuff back and I'm like.. wtf. But I always write it on here in the submissions box or on scraps of paper in like five minutes, so they stay however they come out xD
I'm'a read what you wrote before I see you though - just trying to pluck up the enthusiasm to draw something for once. I always start, then scribble it all out! _
If only drawing came as easy as writing >_<

Oh, I'm the other way round, I can get a drawing done in one go but writing has to be done and re-done until I'm entirely happy with it. And then I still don't like it. I need some constructive critiscism!

I just need some damn motivation for practise!

When I take a look at what you wrote I'll see if I can think of anything, but my stuff never even has punctuation or whatever, so don't hold your breath xD
