768 – Writing

I think I have spent about an hour sat here looking at the screen, thinking about writing about writing. I enjoyed the time at Pagham we had a good trip especially the photo gallery at Petworth. I’d like to go to more exhibitions like that. I’d also like to go to more art exhibitions as well.

Then this week, I’ve really enjoyed writing about the conker trees. I did a little bit of research about what it takes to be a naturalist of course, a degree is involved and possibly post-grad stuff. But then I read something that I googled that boiled down to; Go out and observe something, write about it. That’s it. Well, obviously that’s not it.

When we drive north on the A3, there’s a big roundabout just to the north of Petersfield. The second exit has a sign it’s one of the brown tourist signs pointing to Gilbert White’s house. I’ve lost count of the number of times we drove past it and I asked the question “Who’s Gilbert White”. One day, I actually got around to googling the name. Well, what a world that has opened.

One of the next things on the cards is a visit to the house. I’m going to say that Gilbert White’s most well known book is The Natural History of Selborne. I have had a few opportunities in book shops to buy a copy, and of course I could buy it anytime off Amazon but I have resisted because I want to buy it at the house. I’ve compromised, I’ve bought a copy of his journals, and am in the process of arranging a visit to Selborne. I’m getting quite excited at the prospect.

Now, that wasn’t too difficult, once I got going, it was straightforward. Trouble is, it took me almost an hour to get started, with two abandoned attempts where I had started but didn’t like what I had written. But I’m quite happy with this. All I need to do now is re-read and resist the urge to publish straight away.

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.
