I can relate to the need to always note ideas down. Writers have a tendency to always be inspired by sudden ideas, when they’re not suffering through that condition known as writer’s block. I also relate to this piece as someone who used to play piano but stopped as well. Music and writing are connected.
Also, thank you for sharing this insight into how you started about writing and your journey so far. It’s easy for us to get demotivated but the pleasure lies in knowing that our work is being acknowledged by someone out there. It’s what makes it all worth it. :)
