A funny thing occurred after I commented on a blog post this morning. Mind you, I’m more of an on-line lurker than conversationalist. Not because I don’t want to engage, but because I find myself failing to construct the perfect response.
Maybe it’s the recent nudge to submit my work; or perhaps it’s the buoying support I’ve received since taking that great leap that led me to post a simple comment without the usual angst over the best way to turn a phrase. Whatever the reason, I put my words together, hit the reply button, and started making my coffee.
That’s when the magic happened. I began to have ideas of how to tighten up my thoughts, add simple, yet vivid descriptors and didn’t kick myself for not having thought of them BEFORE I posted my reply. Instead, I joyfully acknowledged that hard working revisionist hanging out behind my eyes and thanked her for helping me to realize that we work much better as a team than when we’re fighting a battle where words are never born.
