real life, Whatever, Writing

Life isn’t written in draft.

Lots of things in life start off as a draft. The email we write, we change words, add extra bits to it. Make it sound more eloquent, understanding – easy to read. How often do we send it out after the first go? Or the text we want to send, if we have a spell checker on, it tells us we need to change a word so it is correct.

The simple cake we make, we put embellishments of icing on, add extra glitzy balls, or tiny flowers. That simple cheese sandwich just needs an extra squirt of mayo, we want it to be the best it can be.

If only all of life was so simple! We can’t often take back that nasty word or that argument over something stupid. What a shame it can’t be previewed like the draft of a blog!

Such a shame. Life would be less painful if we could don’t you think?

Sometimes you just don’t have the inspiration.  I just haven’t been in the right place to put pen to paper…or get typing.

But now I feel ready again. Lots of things have happened to me – and my family while I’ve been away, I wont bore you with them. I’ll start afresh, and see where my imagination and of course real life  takes me.
