Have you ever noticed how some things, when you pay too much attention to them, become impossible to do? It's like when you stand in front of a mirror and watch yourself try to tie a lace or fasten the clasp on a necklace. What is right in front of your eyes becomes awkward and confusing, and the closer you look, the harder it becomes.

I think that must be how it is with writing. Eventually you just have to step back, stop watching your reflection, wait for your brain talk to your fingers, and then it happens.

darn it you! youve got the writing thing for sure. 'your brain to talk to your fingers' are you kidding me. great stuff in so little.

also like when you say the same word over and over (fond kids game) you forget what it means.

true true true just write right??
