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.

Who am i kidding?

I created this, as I alluded to earlier, as a diversion, but I would really like to make it work. I have no idea what the primary focus should be. I also do not know how to gain an audience. Even one who might just read for the first time.

I also feel profoundly tired. That might be because I am blogging in bed. Oh, the wonders of mobile devices.

Welcome

I wanted a good forum for my ersatz intellectual writing.

What have I got for today? Call it a poem? Or an aphorism?

A plan kept is like a page unturned in the book of what could have been.
