Food for my thought

It’s more than that. She’s tapping into my ideas. I shared a story with her about a woman who is in love with a humanoid and now she’s writing a story about a woman who is in love with a humanoid.

I almost feel like she’s competing with me. I get this strange vibe from her, like she’s using me for data and then going at it alone to generate similar concepts with her own imagination and it’s irritating me. I haven’t been able to write for weeks and I am so frustrated cause I feel like a traitor to myself for sharing my ideas with her and the best part of it all is that she’s spitting back her own story concepts at me as if they are her own and it’s like rubbing crap in my face. It stinks so bad and I want to call her out on it but if I do it’s gonna make me look like I’m crazy because how do you prove that someone is stealing your story ideas and passing them off as their own?!

I need a break…from her. I can’t have these weekly get togethers about her writing progress because it’s draining me, clearly it’s bringing me down and she’s off floating around like a butterfly and everything’s bright and happy and now I’m the miserable one. It’s like we’ve changed places.

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks! If you want to see Arash in his element (ranting about stories) check out his YouTube channel.
