And that’s exactly why I am doing this.
I need to push myself and make myself think through words and find new ways to express myself.
I need to push myself and make myself think of new stories to tell, in new ways.
I need to push myself and make myself look at things differently.
I have patterns to how I write sometimes – the above is a good example of parallel structures for emphasis. I probably rely on it too much, too. I should find new patterns to write in, and adapt them to my voice.
I should write more about others and about things of interest and stop the navel gazing (if ever a post was navel-gazing, this is it). Not that I shouldn’t ever write about my own life, but writing about the process of how I’m writing? I dunno. That seems a bit … self-indulgent.
I will have something more interesting tomorrow. I will find a new topic and find a new way to write about it.
