Writing is hard. 

Wow. It’s a revelation I know. But it’s true. Putting words down on paper (or, in this digital age, more often putting words on screen) that actually form half way decent sentences is one of the hardest things for me to do.

I mean, you’d think it would be pretty easy. I talk a lot. Have a pretty good command of the English language. Am proficient at the 140 character status and the 90 character ad. I even have a decent vocabulary filled with cool sounding words like mellifluous, stentorian and conflagration. I even know what they mean and didn’t need spell-check to spell them correctly (it seems all those years of reader’s digest word quizzes paid off! Thanks Dad!)

I need some inspiration. I need a muse. Someone or something that will inspire me, that will give me great ideas that just leap onto paper! If only those Greek goddesses of inspiration truly existed.

Maybe it’s a lack of focus, in the 3 hours alone, while trying to write this post, I have tweeted 7 times, changed my twitter profile pic, updated my page, spent 20 minutes searching for people I know on LinkedIn (this is probably a topic for a whole separate post though) and made 2 cups of tea. And probably spent ~20 minutes of actual time writing. 

They say to become an expert in anything you need to spend approximately 10 000 hours doing it. What I want to know is: does 10 000 hours trying/pretending to write count? If that’s the case I’m pretty sure I passed that mark ages ago >.<


Hello World. So, like, I totally have a blog now.

Like the 20 million other bloggers out there I totally believe I have stuff worth saying and I think the first step to getting this out is to actually create a blog. Maybe I’ll even write in it semi-regularly. I wouldn’t expect any consistency in the topics though. My thoughts are as random as your average random number generator. Sometimes even I don’t know what I’m thinking.

So here are some guidelines for anyone finding this blog and who is actually crazy enough to follow it:

Things to expect:

  • The unexpected
  • Squirrels

Things not to expect:

  • Coherency
  • Consistency
  • The expected

Great. Now we’re all on the same page.

This is actually the most I’ve written in weeks that didn’t fit into 140 characters. I’m looking forward to writing more here.

Insert awesome ending line here.
