The Name

So why is the blog called Scraps of Paper?

Ideas are fickle things — coming up when you least expect them and vanishing just as quickly. It pains me to think of the ideas that have flown out through my ears after I’ve vowed to “not forget that.” And with most of my emotionally-fueled pieces, the feeling I wish to express is often gone by the time I schedule a writing session. Therefore, many of these writings in their original or preliminary forms are hastily scribbled in a cheap notebook or, indeed, scrawled on post it notes, napkins, receipts, place mats, etc.

I found it only appropriate to name this collection of original poetry and prose for what it really is — scraps of paper.

Thank you so much for checking this out! I hope you enjoy what you read.
