I apologize

Filed under: Just a thought..., Random — johnyourk @ 7:10 pm

     I have to apologize. I am not a blogger. I am an essayist. I just found that out today. I write a lot. I’ve been told I talk a lot. It’s true. I also always have a lot on my mind. And I like to formulate arguments. Also, I’m a bit lazy. I never type more than a rough draft, and I never really have an exact idea of what I’m going to write, just the general issue or topic I’m writing on.

     The way I write. It’s simple. One thought comes to mind, I write about it then expand on it. And write “freehand”, meaning: I just write. It’s very simple and therapeutic. So I naturally seem scattered when I write, it’s because i really don’t edit or think about the exact path i’m going. It’s like climbing a mountain. There are a lot of ridges and various physical features on the mountain, and every path is different going up. I’m like a mountain climber when formulating my essay, except I don’t plan the trip. I just know where I’m starting and where I’ll end, if I get off course, if I go off on a different tangent, it doesn’t matter, because for the most part, i hit the peak no matter the route.

     My apology is also includes the fact that i sometimes bring other topics in. Although they have to do with the main topic, they take focus away from it, and also make my blog post very long. So I will stray away from adding other issues or topics in. I’ll stick to the main points.

     I also have to apologize for being scattered. I will always write “freehand”, but I’ll try to make it more thought out in form. I will stay close to the topic and try not to be redundant or confusing.

     In the future, I’ll try to be a better blogger. Thank you.
