This afternoon, while appreciating yet another sunny weekend afternoon - a trashy novel in my lap, iPod tuned to some mellow music, and a small battalion of bees zipped from clover flower to clover flower in my yard, I realized that writing for my job has totally ruined my writing.
At one time, I used descriptive words. I tried to paint with words. Now, I just try to get the point across without too much fluff.
I've totally forgotten what this year's new year's resolution was. I s'pose it's not too late to make one up?
I need to try to wind my way back to my old writing habits. Learn to use words just because I like the sound of them. Don't worry about space and economy.
