Today’s challenge from Zero to Hero was to play around with our About Me pages and rewrite or seriously edit them. I never really liked my About Me page, but I left it because I always hated them. Today I was told I had to do it, and that helped me get 1500 words out on my short story, so it all worked out.
But I did get to it in the end, and I’m not sure what to make of it. I quite like it, but I also think I went a bit weird there. Maybe it was the tea talking.
Whatever it was, I cut out a lot as I was going that I decided to move to later blogs. My PearlTrees account is filling up with scraps of stuff that I want to talk about, and will, once I’ve got the time and more of an idea what I’m actually talking about.
Talking comes very easily to me. Stopping, less so. My official review at my last job was ‘can talk and cook at the same time’. If I’m happy the words just flow. It’s easier for everyone if there’s a pen or computer to hand than if I have to say them out loud. I get very funny looks for some of the things in my head. Case in point, if I hadn’t checked what I’d just pasted, you would have ended up with a link to an article about the Romanian Orthodox 2014 calendar that’s making the rounds.
At least on a blog I have an edit fuction. I can snip things out and save them for later. You can’t do that out loud.
