During this first week with the blog I’m starting to see how rusty, or lazy, I’ve become with my writing.
In hindsight I should have seen this coming with the quality of my BRG forum contributions and now that I am spending more time on this, it is starting to become clear I can sure use the practice.
First thing that comes to my mind is whether parenthood is responsible. For the last couple of years I’ve been speaking to my son in short sentences and in the third person. “Daddy loves you.” “Say ta.” “No kick cat.”
Or maybe it is just the fact I haven’t done this for a very long time. I certainly can’t say I’m talented; there are guys in BRG who have a gift with words that I am truly envious of, but sometimes I think I come up with a paragraph or two that I am proud of.
Regardless, it’s a great exercise in expanding my skillset. And improving my spelling. 🙂
