"There are a thousand thoughts
lying within a man
that he does not know
till he takes up a pen to write."
~ William Makepeace Thackeray
Isn't that the truth? There have been so many times that I've sat myself down to write and then the thoughts and ideas start pouring out, much faster than I can write or even type. (Of course, then there are those days when I really want to write something, but I'm stuck staring at a blank piece of paper! I much prefer the first scenario.) Our brains are amazing machines, filled with stories to tell -- sometimes stories that we don't even know about until we start writing!
