To combat this phenomenon I created a word document to store ideas, opening paragraphs, and unfinished posts. It’s helped with the remembering of ideas but not with the actual sharing of finished writings. I was reading thought the entries I’ve saved and found:
-7 Sunday Scribbling prompts started but never finished
-A link to a home decor shop that I don’t remember visiting
-The words “Super well and very healthy. She’s been” I have no idea what that was about
-Three posts directly related the start of the Olympics. One was a rant about figure skating commentators, another about Canadian identity, and the last a parallel to
earning a gold medal and a lesson we were doing with the children at Kidsworld.
-A rant about an issue I had with my writing group that is no longer an issue
-home improvement plans
-Thoughts on books I was reading in January (some of which I’m still reading)
-My thoughts on Doctor Who, the killing off of the tenth doctor, and my favourite episode
Looking at the subjects I feel sad. I write but the actual posting isn’t happening. Even if I polished some of these paragraphs there is no point. Too much time has passed from when they we’re started. As my friend Jordan says, “you miss week and everything is irrelevant.” Sign…I should just delete the words but I wrote them and can’t bring myself too.
Question of the Day: which of these “old” ideas would you be interested in reading?
