In an effort to better myself (“uh, huh”) and to broaden my horizons (“oh yeah”) I have tried to browse the ethernet more (“that’s cybernet”), no, wait, cyberspace (“bingo“) and read a variety – an “eclectica” of stuff to see what I can see. I am looking for insight, inspiration and maybe a little psychic push. My name is GirlieOnTheEdge and I’m a lazy diletante. There I said it. I acknowledge what I am and damned if I don’t need some help! Tell me. What are the steps I should (need to) take to become a writer of words that please, pleasure, dazzle and amaze? Yeah, I know. Write every day. I’m thinking discipline is the unspoken bad boy here and no amount of cropping his butt is going to make it eaiser to aquire.
“Aquire, aquisition“. Isn’t it all about “aquisition”? Hey, what?! Did I not just answer the most frequently asked question by individuals since the dawn of time? (yawn) Artistic, intellectual, emotional, financial – all these are the answers. All of us wish to aquire all or some of these “things” in an amount sufficient to satiate ourselves. “Identify longing and desire then proceed to the office on your right and please, keep the line moving!”
So your number’s up. Over a loudspeaker you hear “next!” You walk up to the door, hand trembling. (ignore the beads of sweat breaking out on your forehead – someone just forgot to turn on the ac. ya, right) You take hold of the doorknob and begin to turn. Appears to be opening just fine. Whew! The sigh of relief you exhale leaves you lightheaded. Finally, you’re at the place where you sign the papers. You read them over, everything seems to be in order….except you d-i-d-n’-t r-e-a-d t-h-e f-i-n-e p-r-i-n-t.
“Thank you for coming in Ms. GirlieOnTheEdge. We just need you to fill out this supplemental questionaire…”
