Last nights post arose from a thought I had. What I wanted to do was to paint a moving vibrant picture of a major geological event that ended up giving the people who visit Lulworth Cove a visual feast.
I don’t think it worked very well. Strangely, I had the thought that I would try again, but this time with the formation of an oxbow lake. Not tonight, sometime in the future. Perhaps I need to plan what I was going to say. T
he trouble is I have thoughts and images in my mind and I am too eager to get the words down, and my brain says that what I’m thinking is what I am writing I become over confident and rush to publish and of course, when I read it back I find all the mistakes, plus what I’ve written really doesn’t match what I had visualised.
If I want to even try to write well, I can’t rush, but it will take time. To me that implies that I may need something other than this blog (in addition to, most definitely not instead of) where I put a bit more thought into my writing, and a bit less rush. The thing is though, I do this blog every day, and it can be a bit rushed at times.
One thought I suppose is to plan my posts, I tend not to know what I’m going to write until I sit down with the iPad. If only I could plan a week ahead, perhaps even longer. I’m probably partly my own worst enemy as I don’t really have a focus for the blog.
