my first attempt at writing on medium
An idea forms in my head while on the train to work. I hold onto it until I find some time to sit down and write.
I piece together a grand intro. (10 minutes)
I start onto my first argument..nope backspace, backspace, backspace. I stare back at the blinking cursor to try to gather my thoughts. I write something else down. Midway through I decide that it was going nowhere but it sounded nice after editing it 100 times, after every two words so I keep it at the bottom of the page, just in case it becomes useful later (but frankly, I was just proud of the words that I had strung together). (15 minutes)
I think long and hard about what I want to write. My critical thinking skills kick in (that’s what they teach you in school these days) and I slowly start to rebuke all the thoughts I had before. (20 minutes)
With nothing but my grand intro that doesn’t seem to lead anywhere, I’m exhausted.
The idea, I decided, has not been flushed out yet so I will think about this more in the shower.
I save the file as a draft.
