  Why the last post was titled 'Keep Trying'.
The title of the previous post did not match the content but that can be blamed on the continuing battle with the self diagnosed ADD.

The point I meant to make is that I am working on improving the consistency of my writing. The self designed plan calls for handwritten drafts that can then be typed without needing the time consuming additional 'Proof and Print' step.

The one result of this new process is that if I wrote nothing out, the typewriter did not even leave its home in my locker.

This afternoon instead of 'thinking' of what I wanted to write, and putting yet another item in the round-to-it file I am writing out my thoughts so a little later on this evening I can just type them up. I was realizing that while I am usually quick to expound on various subjects verbally, the patience needed to write out those thoughts is something I am not always willing to commit to.

Yes I have admitted to LAZINESS and that is the label I am sticking to for now.

I know better, but the difference between knowing and doing is sometimes an insurmountable roadblock on the road to personal improvement.

I did manage to type out twelve handwritten pages yesterday and by the time I was down to the last page the fingers were no longer under operator control. That means I need to be more consistent and be sure to give these errant fingers more frequent exercise. Practice makes perfect.

I will let this sit and ferment for a bit and probably write out a few more posts before I take out the typewriter and begin to put these thoughts into blog worthy format. Stay tuned for more confessions.

[Truth telling time. It is now 8:30 PM and I have just finished typing all the handwritten notes. Be careful what you promise. No, I never did get around to adding any more posts. Tomorrow is yet another day. I am going to keep at it; it does seem to be an efficient way to divide the workload. Stay tuned.]
