I never really considered myself a writer. I struggle with it even now, staring at the same sentence for five minutes, erasing what I just wrote and staring into space trying to gather my thoughts. I think it is because of the way I think. I'm not a sequential thinker. If you know me well enough for me to just randomly tell you what I'm thinking you might think I'm ADD. My thoughts and ideas jump all over the place. If I need to follow a thought or idea through I really need to make myself a list and keep myself on task for it to get done. And that is probably why I'm not a fluent writer. I don't write down a plan. I try to muddle though my thoughts in the post and many times end up thinking my writing sounds just like chit chat. I know that may be okay, but the chit chat has to stay on topic!
on twitter, on my ipad, in email and on facebook.
It has occurred to me that my children probably wouldn't even recognize my handwriting if they had to identify it. That really bothers me, because I treasure the letters I have from my grandmother and father who have since passed away. I would recognize their script anywhere and it brings comfort to me to get out those old letters from time to time. I really need to sit down and take the time to put pen to paper.
