did it all come together at the end?

I wonder what I’m going to write about in the coming piece. Can my various disconnected thoughts be strung together into a well-made daisy chain of ideas?

Let’s examine that sentence. How does this sound?

Can I string together my various disconnected thoughts into a well-made daisy chain of ideas?

How about flipping those strings around?

Can I string together a well-made daisy chain of ideas out of my various disconnected thoughts?

Let’s drop some words. Can I string together a daisy chain of ideas out of my disconnected thoughts?

Tight. Tighter? Can I string a daisy chain of ideas from my disconnected thoughts?

Let’s add a little pretense, and a little poetry: Can I craft a daisy chain of ideas from my broken thoughts?

Suddenly, that sentence sounds weird to the crafter, who doesn’t exactly know what a daisy chain is. Until now. Can I craft a mosaic of ideas from my splintered thoughts?

How does one write? Especially if one want to simply discover it, akin to how with the tools of mathematical analysis one can discover new theorems, previously unknown, which could never be taught?

Of course, today, virtually nothing would be discovered for the first time. Nonetheless, discovering something for oneself is a thrill in itself. The feeling of being drenched to the bone in a torrential thunderstorm is indeed ‘discovered’ by many people during their lives. And while one might not remember the first time it happens to him, its impact is defining, deciding whether or not he would allow himself to undergo such as experience again.

But I meander. Any thoughts on discovering writing? How did you do it? Here’s my experiment. Write. A few hundred words. Everyday, if possible; but well, I’m no six-sigma. Play with the language, the style, the words. See how and where things go. Comments, as always, are expected. Do you expect replies to your comments too?

This blog is not meant to create dialogue with readers; however should it, I will try my best to make that dialogue meaningful for all concerned. Currently, this blog in an experiment in the art and skill of writing. I do not know if the cartooning shall continue — I certainly hope it shall — so I’m sorry if I have disappointed any readers who were looking forward to them.

  1. kal,

    You went back and read what you’d written before moving to the next iteration of that sentence, didn’t you?

    How many folks don’t read what they’ve written and assume everything’s alright?
