Go back to a blog post you always thought could be better, or were unsatisfied with — now, fix it.
In a word, NO!
Yes you heard me.
Sod Off Daily Prompt.
Not that I don’t see where you are coming from in this. Everything can I am sure be improved by another look, from a different place and perhaps a different time, but do you really expect me to have in my consciousness a singular blog that was unsatisfactory…so bad that it has kept me awake nights seeking out only the prompt of a higher being to allow me to write the wrongs.(Yes, I know what I did there ;))
Quite frankly Daily Prompt I am surprised at you. You must by now be aware of my ‘in the moment’ philosophy when it comes to writing. This stuff can’t be edited. How very dare you. Each stroke of the keyboard is a flick of the artists brush and each complete work a statement of the Here and Now that represents the conscious flow of this fledgling writer.
Would you ask Kerouac to edit On the Road or Ginsberg to take another look at Howl? No you bloody well wouldn’t and whilst I accept that I am in no way as highly regarded, well known or frankly that bothered about by anyone other than my 3 readers, as those two luminaries, I will not relinquish my right to art in it’s pure form. This form. Unedited.
Like a thought my blog comes into being and like a thought it passes. Such is life and what happens happens. Sometimes I get a comment. Sometimes more. Oftentimes very little takes place.
Care I one iota. No?
Because right now, here at this still-point in time, I am writing for me…wholly and unashamedly for me.
Life is hard right now and every time I sit and pen a blog I escape from that overwhelming reality.
It has become a kind of meditation…a way of practicing being in the moment…fully and consciously.
Not last Thursdays moment.
