I'm wondering whether I will write myself better by fashioning my words in an obvious way, or leading one to conclusions through subtle weaving sentences. Do I write prettily, or do I sit down and simply stop when I've said It like It is? A mix of both would be suitable, I suppose.
I used to fill Mead notebooks with any thought that begged expression. Some entries were plain and simple, some were evocative and well-crafted. But each entry was honest, whether tactful or not. So maybe my concern shouldn't be how well I write, but how truthfully I write.
I haven't written this way--my filling-up-a-Mead-notebook way--for a long time. It's been necessary for a long time, though. So, whenever I feel like writing, whenever you feel like reading: See the wheels at work.
