- How to Write
Musing, just musing
I blog and I blog; it's an addicting habit so I've been devoting an inordinate amount of time and energy to writing, editing, promoting it. I never knew or thought that it could be so close to a full-time job; garnerIng next to no income! But, I love it and I write because it's my passion.
So, what does mention of my blog have to do with the 'price of tea in China?' Nothing, absolutely nothing; I only mention it because just this afternoon, I made the decision, the conscious decision to take a bit of time of and reconnect with my Hub friends! I miss my 'Hubbers,' my buddies, and contributing to the community. The blog keeps me centered and focused and DEFINITELY task-oriented. But, I've been neglecting the HP for about 5 months, now! This is my R and R. '
Me? R and R?, 'Saints preserve us,' but I need a break. And I also wanted to tell you that a company president saw my blog, liked my writing style (I hope I write about lupus in a more organized fashion that I do when I have diarrhea of the mouth and constipation of the brain this afternoon!
Anyhoo, the company president asked me to write for his lupus blog, so in addition to being here, having my own blog, a blog on facebook, a blog on another site and one more, I am exhausted and do a lot of really mindless things; occaisionally the bone-headed move is made!
So, what's the point of this little exercise? To see if I can write non-stop on something totally unrelated to science or health, see if it MAKES SENSE! So far, what's my batting average? Oh, you say .240; then make a few suggestions below and I'll learn as we go along. I'll be batting .500 before you know it!
You know, when you do this kind of exercise, you ought to have a goal, a point specific which is best reached as, "If you get this far, consider yourself done. Anymore and you're reinventing the wheels. Write more at your own peril.
That's my goal. What say you, exactly? If you don't feel like continuing with me on my journey, you have my blessings. But should you decide that you'll take a ride because you have nothing better to do and the ride is free, then I'd love your company. Do i feel like Robert Frost in "You Come Too?" Hardly! But, we've had a nice afternoon, the fire is in the fireplace and it's probably time for you to get back to what you were doing and me to stop chewing the fat!
