This I know

When in doubt, write.
Write feverishly, like your life depended upon it.
No, that phrase doesn't quite cut it.
You know, when you have that asthma/ allergy attack.
Your nose is blocked completely and you are breathing through your mouth.
Shallow gasps of air that you drag through your mouth while making raspy throaty noises.
After 2 mins, a throbbing pain starts in your head, slowly radiating in concentric circles just below skull level.
Every time you open your mouth wider to gulp in more air, the pain shoots up in intensity, the circles of pain in your head are closing in on each other. At this point, death does not seem like a bad idea.And then you set your sights on your inhaler.
Write like this is that moment.
