Writing 101- Don’t Stop the Rockin’
So, 19 days down and 1 to go, we come right back to free writing. Quite frankly I don’t do a lot of writing pieces where I let my mind soar and write whatever comes to me. I usually give it a thought, frame in my head how I’d like to see it appear on paper, and then give it a go. But let’s be real here, what I imagine in my head and what I see written in my squiggly, rushed imperfect handwriting don’t really match and the latter doesn’t usually come that up to the mark. Yet, here I am going for it. For sure this time. I am not thinking about where or to what point I’m heading, yet my fingers are moving in a randomised series of movements trying to make sense, and for sure making countless typos along the way which I’ll have to sit, backspace and type out again for you to comprehend. Ah, coming to you. If you can’t see me right now, oh wait of course you can’t see me because you’re probably 2 continents and 3 oceans away.. but coming back to what I was saying, I’d like you to imagine a person’s emotions and facial expression of that when he/she (i’m all for feminism, don’t want to mess with something that controversial) is handed an ice cream. The ice cream comes with every last one his/her favourite toppings, syrups, fruits- you name it. After finishing slurping down on the last bits of the creamy, milky filled goodness, he/she’s told that that treat has been declared to be free of cost. The amount of contentment after having a stomach full of yummy goodness, being instantly doubled after having being told that it costed zero money out of his/her pocket in this corporate plauged world, is exactly the amount of satisfaction and happiness that I get when I blog. Quite similar to splashing paint on to a wall, I splatter all my heart and crazy mindless thoughts on to the screen, which becomes my ice cream treat. Having it published on to my very own page and for so many amazing people like you to read it and appreciate whatever I’ve poured out of my head is astonishing. Just like being handed an ice cream cone, free of cost. By now, you probably also know that my brain has tendencies to reach the extremities of metaphorical comparisons. And yet, you’re still here. So, for that I’d like to thank you. You’re awesome. Alright? Almost nothing compares or beats being awesome in this world. That’s what I think. Well, that’s how I think it should work! This motto comes from my optimistic, cheerful, exuberant mind, as well as from the words of my favourite, Barney Stinson, the NPH. So, I think that’s it for now. I guess this must have been around 400 words by the estimation made by my slightly mathematically dysfunctional brain which at times forget what 7 times 6 are. Ohh and don’t forget, you’re awesome.
