I also get lots of bizarre ideas about things I want to do. My angst has a traveling companion oftentimes. Its name is mania. My manic thoughts want me to deal with my insecurity and anxiety by doing things I wouldn't normally do. Some of my latest winning ideas include:
- going on a ride-along with a patrol cop
- signing up with the county coroner's office to watch an autopsy as research for a writing project
- going to an open mic night for poetry and (fingers crossed!) flash fiction reading (I'd much rather read some of my flash fiction than my poetry)
Writing seems to be helping my anxiety, so I suppose I'm off to create more poorly written poetry.
