Well I am still shooting hoops and trying things out. I have started to regain my somewhat lost sense of humour. Maybe you can understand this considering your own experience but I had to remove myself from that scene. I kept it too close and secure for too long that it became something I could only talk about in first person. Not something that would be interesting to anyone else but me. I have for quite some time wrestled with the message. There also has to be a lesson to the moral dilemma that situation I found myself in posed. I think I have one now.
Right now I am making excuses for not writing. Weather is nice but I have a week off in August. Thinking I will try and organize what is written so far. I have basic outline done so it shouldnt be too hard too get rolling.
I am enjoying the process of writing. I find it both amazing and surprising. I noticed before when I wrote that everything I wrote had a gentle tug that veered towards that coalmine. Lately though I have started varying the topic. Injecting a bit of humour and farce into subjects.
I suppose I am still experimenting with a style I can feel comfortable with. Yesterday I wrote a comment to follow JQ’s ruminations of being in a funk about the point of writing.
Funny there are days when I labour to write 100 words in a coherent fashion. Yet yesterday I wrote a bit, albeit a short piece, in about half an hour.
I am always surprised when something I write turns into something I like and more importantly for others as well. Reading Jim’s post I felt I had to respond. I have told him many times how important this blog has been to me.
Mucking about here has taught me the rudiments of composition. I still have much to learn but I can see the progression. Uncola, HSF, many others and of course Jim Quinn himself are great mentors in ways they likely don’t fully appreciate.
Here I am rambling along.
Anyways as for our buddy the shock man. Well I have to shake my head at the farce he presides over. I may be a simple man but I have always been leery of anyone who claimed to have the answers to everything.
An oracle he is not.
Still I wonder what the issue was with the supposed heresy
