763 – Proof Reading by the seaside

A seaside stall selling the equipment necessary for some extensive sandcastle construction. Trouble is, the beach in the area is not sandy. Full of shingle. Now, I don’t know a lot about shingle, but with a little bit of digging (pun probably intended) I found out that there is a difference between shingle and gravel; gravel is small fragments of rock. Shingle is a collection of small stones that are generally close to teardrop shaped. Who would have thought that?

I have a bad habit of thinking that what I write is good enough for publication and go ahead with it. It’s only when I go back to read it that it doesn’t always say what I intended. This could be partly because my brain is working ahead of my fingers and I think what I want to say but then don’t write it down. Take yesterdays post No. 763 – Grass, here’s a link; https://localitystories.com/2022/09/17/762-grass/ In that post what I wanted to really talk about was how impressed I was with the resilience of the plan. How rapidly and apparently completely it turned from the parched brown to its normal green. But I didn’t say that, I left it out.

It’s like a lot of things I do, I tend to rush, and don’t always Finnish things properly. If only I could bother to take those few extra seconds or minutes to read through what I’ve written; does it say what I want it to? Luckily, I don’t have to worry too much about spelling and some punctuation, it’s just mostly content.

I did wonder if there was a protocol or an ethics associated with the editing of blogging. It appears not. It appears that there little or no compunction against going back to an earlier post and changing it. So, I could have gone back to yesterday’s post and changed it so that it says what I intended.

For some reason, i find that a bit worrying. I am reminded off Orwell’s 1984 and the continual re-writhing of history. It is so much easier when everything is digital. My feeling is that my mistakes should remain as they were made. How else do I learn?

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
