Many of us have a lot to say; and yet, we are at a loss as to how to express our innermost thoughts through rudimentary conversation. However: Things change when we are seated before a keyboard and the ramblings appear on a small screen. Here is our domain. We can record our musings at random; and then, with a slight touch of a couple of keys, arrange or re-arrange the patterns into readable articles. Another plus is the fact that this machine allows for the prevention of the dreaded disease called; “Foot in Mouth Syndrome.”
Beginning with a simple idea; we are able to expand it or abbreviate it, as the notion strikes us. The first concept sometimes reminds us of similar occurrences within the same context: The story then continues, or can be “edited” to change the original thought.
Many articles begin with one particular thought; and end with an entirely different approach. All of this is possible through the genius of the computer and its ability to delete and/or change certain portions; with a simple stroke of a couple of buttons.
This is not to say that writing is easy for one who: For most of their lives; felt that the learning of proper usage of the English language: (Spelling, Punctuation, Grammar, etc.), was a ridiculous waste of time. Without an editor in the form of my lovely roommate; the recording of ‘My particular thoughts’ would only amount to so much “Gobble-De-Gook”.
The majority of my work is derived from experiences from my past: And humorous anecdotes; that I have observed in the course of everyday living in and around the small towns of the deep South.
It is here that what many would consider run-of-the-mill happenings; can be reported in such a way that they appear ludicrous enough to be amusing.
It is not my intention to ridicule or embarrass anyone; therefore, names, times, and many events are changed and the manifestation is such that the incident could happen to anyone; anywhere. In many incidences, much of the content consists of figments of the writer’s imagination.
It is my belief that by exercising a writer’s prerogative of; ‘Adding To;’ and ‘Taking From;’ an incident without departing from the original idea, can make for a more interesting text.
Although a few of my musings are of a more serious disposition: Most are intended to be of a humorous nature. If they invoke a smile or two, then I consider that my hunt and peck method of exchanging insults with a machine that desperately tries to out-think me; has not been in vain.
