Hey Jim,

Thank you for writing. I think it’s to each their own, I often notice that the ending I have in mind tends to evolve over time. There’s a short story I wrote, I’m happy to link it to you if you’d like to read. Where initially I start off with writing about losing a twin siblings, and the survivor coming to terms with the suicide trying to figure out why it happened. And then the ending evolved into it being mental-illness and that his twin sibling never really existed. It’s so odd, hey? It’s also I feel great writers have to be great observers, people watchers…we tend to notice things people don’t. Maybe it’s because we’re always projecting and wondering how we could exaggerate something minuscule into a story.

I’m not sure if you’re a fan of The Rolling Stones, but I was watching Keith Richard’s documentary “Under the Influence” and he talked about how he doesn’t remember writing some of the songs they did and had to go back and re-learn them; I guess we could argue it was drugs as well that played the part.

I wanted to share this video with you, I always find it entertaining. Have a look, hopefully you enjoy it.

Hey take care and good luck, mate.

Thank you for writing.

Kind Regards,
Nabeel. :)

I failed to learn the piano, so I decided I’d play the keyboard instead. //All aboard the Crazytrain.
