I’m thinking of the wonderful person who left me the wonderful comment on my Post “Possible Departure.” I’m also thinking of the new people I’m meeting now from the above hashtags on Twitter.
Can Dr. PA perform whatever surgery to reconnect her Blog causing the (best description) phantom limb pain? She’s not even sure what limb, or organ is affected. And who’s to say there’s only one?
My personal writing is rather different than what you would see here. Except possibly in style, in parts. A smattering or splattering, here and there.
As far as my personal writing, I’ve got my fingers stuffed in every pie. Apart from Screenplay which I would love. I have a theatre background so I think it would be very fulfilling.
Otherwise, you name it, I’ve done it. Or, have worked on and lost it, due to technological disasters–before a backup. However, the main idea or ideas remained in my head.
I probably could have reconstructed it, like a five-year-old learning to tie their shoelaces for the first time. Or maybe not.
I’d still give it a shot though. If it became too troublesome and/or frustrating, I’d just stop and put it aside.
That’s one thing I’ve learned. If you still see one iota of potential in something you’ve set aside, even lost in a box, in an ancient notepad or on the floor under furniture *raises hand* NEVER throw it away.
Conversely, only you know what you’ve produced and where it came from. I find (or feel) these are your most intimate pieces of work. They are for me. They are my poems.
It depends, but sometimes I can look at a poem I’ve written and immediately know it carries zero value whatsoever. Others are like a rating system. Like when you are at an intersection? Red, Yellow, Green…
What about environment? Well, it’s kind of odd for me. I’ll start simply with either silence or a lot of sound. Loud! Or just background, useless loops.
I have Asperger’s and ADD. This is where things get a little strange. I have some Auditory Processing Issues with my Asperger’s. That might account for the various sounds I “automatically choose” to hear.
The ADD! Indeed, you would think I could not focus that well? It might prove difficult to write? Yes, that happens.
There is another side to it though. I can hyperfocus to extreme degrees on subjects that very much interest me. A bomb blast next to me could happen and I wouldn’t have a clue. And actually, the Asperger’s falls in line with that as well.
So, it’s somewhat comforting to know my rather complicated brain (more diagnoses) is good in a somewhat, somehow kind of way. *laughing* Nah, my nutty bean comes in handy for other things too.
Well, I guess that’s some info about my writing and how I try to accomplish more than bogroll. I find it hard to keep up with a lot of the time, but it’s still there.
Plus, there is no such thing as a lonely writer. You have two awesome friends that will never leave your side. A Dictionary and a Thesaurus.
