Writing: pulling no punches. / 6 May 2012

In his blog Rich Downes asked what is writing? Really.

I said, for me right now writing is like punching a hole in the fog that surrounds me.

And then I thought, it's like having a pillow fight without the pillow case.

My head is in another place, on another wave. I'm studying web design (a slow process) and currently  learning to use Adobe Flash (see example), which is amazing, but it means the wordy part of my brain keeps dozing off.

I'm sure it's a blip.

For now, however, this is the best I can do.
