Writing 101, Unblock The Mind
It’s not my mind that feels blocked, it’s my time. It has been hi-jacked into many (many!) diverging and interesting directions and I can’t keep up. Happy, sad, annoying, financial, familial, all types of occurrences grabbing hold and insisting on attention. As I turn my head in the direction of the chatter, five other emails, snail mails, people and events join the conversation and I am making split second decisions on who, what, when and where. Has it always been this way? Why am I feeling overwhelmed? Or if not overwhelmed, discombobulated!
Okay, now I’m getting pissed. This is the third time WordPress has literally disappeared my paragraphs! And that’s 20 minutes. Stop It WordPress! You ask me to write unfettered and lose my words. I’m afraid the intent of this assignment has been lost to technology’s failings.
“The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
I had to giggle, reading this; you made a good start but got derailed by a technology problem! And we can all relate to that one!
