SOME THOUGHTS: ONE YEAR IN A WRITING LIFE
As I was browsing the internet, I stumbled upon Ello and discovered this one post by @tvansantana via @ellowrites. Write a short journal entry. Ten minutes. OK, fine, I told myself, let's do it. I have to confess: I don't usually journal. As a kid, this was something I despised as being too boring and not rewarding whatsoever. Now I know talking to yourself in your own head or putting these words on paper make no difference. Computers've allowed me to write almost as fast as I build up sentences. That's strange, the way this way of writing divides writers. On the one had, those who believe you have to be physically close to your text, to be like one with it. On the other, writing on computer allows you to write faster (let's not deny it), and to get closer to your creation process as you capture your thoughts almost immediately. But there are some lines I still write on paper. Those who matter. Those I don't trust anyone but myself to read.
The most deadliest wars are the ones we don't fight.
Organisation, journaling, writing lists. Cleaning up, tidying up, washing up. Working, socialising, commuting. Reading, thinking, writing. Breathing, breathing, breathing.
There was one thing I wanted to try: having a cup of tea (not coffee, but tea, that was the whole point), and then, out of the blue, having interesting and unpredicted thoughts. Apparently that's not how life works. You don't just sit down and the universe don't just throw knowledge on you out of thin air. Too bad.
