So, the re-run. Its been a full season or a collection of them since the last writing and well what can I say, its good to hang your boots and lay back for a while…or buy a telescope and wait for that perfect eclipse to come round again.
Okay then, apart from the clockwork, what have i been up to?
Not the school thing. Been reading articles, blogs, social pages posts and books…e-books to be precise…paper is to be a rare thing right? I mean, ain’t we saving the trees?
Words can relay our thoughts, emotions and express them in a direct way or confused manner like a picaso art – its a beauty. Don’t get me wrong, we all reason in different ways and that’s a good thing.
Why the extensive reading?
To listen. It’s a pretty rare thing today. Most are talking, few are listening. Have you read what people are posting in their social accounts or watched the news?
Is it music to your ears?
Does it move you?
Maybe the clouds themselves.
For journals, books, blogs and credible websites; well, they do relate. In social media, two-thirds of it is crap. Hear me out; do people really process what they are posting before they post it? We can’t blame typos for sure.
There’s more ‘plastic’ in social media pages than that which is dumped in the ocean. Don’t get me wrong, its not in all accounts but you can relate with some.
So, what’s the gain?
Logic, creativity, imagination. A perfect symphony. Couple it with some reasoning and you’re sure to move people. Read some science articles out there and you’re sure to believe you’re some kind of mutant…or…some conspiracy articles and youll feel like youve ever bumped fists with an alien. They are that good.
Nail it down son!
Let’s kick social media under the matt for now please. I may still be a rookie in writing, but damn!, I really do appreciate the fine works of writers out there. There’s more in writing to ping your sensations in all angles. Even though people are getting lazy in reading…some cant get past 140 word count…all the efforts pushed to out the works is priceless.
A friend told me this;
All whom can ‘write’ can read. But not all those who can read can ‘write.’
