Pacing Myself by J-Dub
When I first started here on Word Press I was a prolific purveyor of bull crap. I had illusions of grandeur that somehow I’d become a writer. Not a published author as I realized early on I am suited for stream of consciousness in short bursts. Any story line I attempt to author would be a cluster. I learned that being a voracious reader does not equate to knowing how to put together a story. Instead, reading lets me know what I like where I can sit in judgment as I think writing is easy … hell even I could do that.
LOL. ‘Tis true. But I’d be wrong. Writing is hard y’all.
Maybe I still am a prolific purveyor of bull crap aka PPOBC considering how I kicked off this post. In the beginning, there was light!
Cough. cough <ahem>
Stay on track Jilly.
In the beginning, I wrote often to “release the hounds”. To scribble out those thoughts in a flurry is an emotional release that helped me deal. Writing has and will always be therapeutic to me. Can I get an alleluia? Or at least an amen! Nope? Well moving on then.
Times are still tough. Worse even than on that terribly hot July 2016 day where I started back again in earnest. Ernest Goes to Camp! Ugh. Stop wandering mind; stay put!
These days I want people to think well of me which is why I am keeping things light instead of making things heavy. Laughter has saved my bacon a time or two. Being silly Jilly is a coping mechanism. Finally a healthy way to deal that does not involve eating my feelings. I may stumble into the shadows a bit time and again but I’ll be right back out. Progress over perfection or some such nonsense from the Koolaid fountain at virtual work. Zen, deep breath in. I have a pattern and set rhythm that comforts me.

Only one post a day … maybe two tops. I’d like to think pacing myself has helped me improve my writing skills. Practice makes perfect and all that jazz. Anywho, that is all … for now. But and it’s a BIG fat ass …
As always, more to come.
P.S. Things I hate about block editor. Adding links in any other space besides “classic block” which shows up as unsupported and not editable on my phone or iPad. You’ve got to be a freaking programmer to insert a link. What language? Are you freaking kidding me? Java my butt. I can copy paste a url but I want to add the text for the link, not just show the ugly url. <p> blah blah kiss my ass <p> that’s wrong … yeah buddy I know it … ain’t nobody got time for this sh*t!!
