  On writing.
Please, it is not always the "time" that prevents me from writing; it is often the emotional state that I am in. I know that this is not a good excuse. I have all these great things to share, and then I have to sit down and slowly type them out and not lose the train of thought.

As I am sure you can tell from some (or all) of my handwritten missives, the brain tries to speed the hand, and any hope of legibility is lost. I suppose it would be a little easier if I could see the whole letter at once and be able to jump back and insert text. Yeah, it would always be better on the other side of the fence.

Unfortunately, I find that the times I really would like to sit and write are often those times that I am not near the typewriter. So draft some notes and then type them later, you say. That is one of the things I am really trying to get through the thick skull of mine.

The things that I cannot just sit down and do the first time, the things I need to work on for several rewrites to see the finished project. That is not a great excuse, but I am writing it more for my benefit to remind me that I do have to spend the effort to get the finished product I want, and there are no short cuts.

So, why not do it the old fashioned way, double spaced draft, and then edit and re-type?

Because it is too much work, and the A.D.D. kicks in.

Boy, if that is not lame.

This is a flabbergast dodge to my questions I asked you I think

To me that makes sense. I have those moments too. When I am up to writing there's no pen, paper, typewriter or computer. And sometimes it is just a problem with writer's block where nothing comes out right, not to mention patience and attention span aren't working.....
