Have you ever gone back and reread your material and thought, ‘did I write that?’ How does it make you feel? Isn’t it weird? Often times after I’ve posted an entry, I never go back and reread it. I figure, it’s best that I leave it alone, or I’ll edit it, over and over, and before I know it, I’ll end up with something totally different to what I had intended it to say. Has this ever happened to you?
I went back and reread some of my entries on here, only because my stats say that they’ve had a few reads, and it got me curious about what it was that I actually wrote, and immediately after my reading the first sentence I wondered if it was me that had written this, because in my opinion, it read really well. Did I really string those words together like that? Wow. Really? Of course, I realise I’ve just impressed myself. You? Maybe not so impressed?
I noticed that my writing appears to go through the same process. I seem to start good (I think I do, anyway) and then I seem to lose momentum. My writing seems to lose that oomph that it starts with. I wonder why that is? Maybe my thoughts wander into the oblivion of nothing and then they drift into a different realm, or maybe it’s natural to just fizzle straight after?
What do you think? Your feedback on any of my entries is welcome.
