Has Twitter Killed My Urge To Blog?

Filed under: Musings on Being a Writer — Laura Moncur @ 9:45 am

Writing feels like voodoo to me. Sometimes it feels like the words come out of my fingers instead of out of my head. Are there only a fixed number of words stored in my fingers? Am I wasting my words on Twitter?

It’s making me wonder.

Twitter only allows my to get my thoughts across in 140 characters. When I am texting on my phone, the 140 limit is a breeze. When I am typing on the keyboard, however, I hit the limit time and time again. Are there more words in my fingers than my thumbs?

When I can write I’m grateful and write as much as I can. When I can’t, I start blaming everything around me, oblivious to the fact that creativity comes in waves. I just need to ride the waves the best I can. Soon the words will flow out of my fingers again and I’ll have to mop up the mess on my keyboard.

To be honest, the whole troll thing is just bugging the crap out of me and I don’t want to tear off my skin and expose it to the underbelly of humanity in addition to the greatness.

To be totally honest, I’ve found Sims 2 for my DS to be a much more comforting way to deal with humanity. The Sims don’t even speak English, so I look like a genius to them.
