On writing (short)

Posted in observations, random by rumin8r on September 1, 2009

The most interesting thing about writing is getting such a clear glimpse of yourself. I would coonsider it, in many cases, a glimpse of my former self.

Thoughts on a page should be carefully arranged. One can take the time to deliberate over what would be the most appropriate word for the microcosm of a single spot in a sentence.

What I read later is a fascinating view of all of the forces I might have weighed in my choice of words. Better yet, I can see all of the ways in which I hoped my words might signal and be received in the best light by those I might hope most to impress. Fascinating.

I hope it is clear that my audience is well above the common denominator – my intended audience, that is.
