Had one of those rare evenings last night where CDR and I actually got to sit and talk, face-to-face, and not face-to-computer-to-face-to-computer. He said, in response to how I get annoyed with myself for posting stories, drabbles, etc. too quickly without following my best writing advice–let it percolate a bit before pressing “publish.” He said as long as he’s known me I have never been one to “let the paint dry,” in my art, writing, or any understaking that requires patience or distance. It’s not always a bad thing, he recognizes, but it is a “thing” I deal with. He, and my best friend since middle school, have both told me patience is my ‘karmic wheel lesson.’ I still say, “Quit burning daylight! Time’s a-wastin’!”
So again — if you see awkward phrasing, a typo, a bit of confusion, I have no one to bounce this stuff off of. I throw it out there, and know I have my (awesome, love you, sweet) readers, and you forgive many of my sins. Not sure if you’re enabling or enduring me, perhaps a bit of both.
While I may never reach the level of the great, and recently late Ray Bradbury (see Effy’s post on this too), remember that we all have a story to share, a perspective from our little trip in the kaleidoscope. Shake it up, and hold it up to the light.
