What if

What if I liked to cook? What if I believed in god on Sundays? What if I had less of an appetite? What if I planned spontaneous sex like the magazines say? What if I wore dresses with higher necklines and had a degree and talked to everyone at parties? What if I read Twilight and identified? What if I avoided unpleasant conversation and what if I never said I don’t agree and what if I only cried at weddings? What if I ran four times a week and drank the right amount of water, and was always pleasant at 6am? What if I helped you tick the boxes and we drew a bigger one around the both of us and lived inside it quite perfectly …

Would this make me easier to love? What if you had to choose?

I am only three things for sure - an Atheist, a Feminist, and a Writer - one who obsesses over the grand themes of love, memory and connection.

  1. I love what you write Rock. I am so pleased that you took this leap of faith and you are flying on a literary cloud.
    It is so thought provoking and real, and it makes me so happy. I love getting them and reading them more and more – like stuffing yourself on a really good pavlova!
    You are best in the west. Well east anyway. xxx

  2. wow, you are able to explain feelings in your writing that I have always found impossible to put into words. I came across this on stumbleupon planned to read one entry maybe have a shower and go to bed but I’ve read 5 now and can’t stop. Good Luck with your book, I will definitely buy it when its finished.

    1. Ha! That’s so great to hear. I imagine reading a bunch at once is like having four seasons in the hour (SO many emotions, ha ha). In terms of putting things into words and the difficulty there – it’s really only blogging that got me to this point. Before that I just wrote sentences on scraps of paper all over the place and could never pull it all together. This is new and exciting for me and so this kind of feedback is especially appreciated x
