I have given up and gone back to writing many times, even when I am writing. The spirit is always willing, and one usually pulls through.
One can be so precise. But I write so instinctively. I should be so precise. But I write so naturally.
Be precise. I should take care on the shortest of pieces, not a wasted line.
The letter ‘L’ is not the least of the letters even it just comes before the weightier letters M , N, and P , with O stuck in between there. L is the letter that brings us love, Latin, longitude, lavish, live, and life. All good words. What’s the lesson? Just because one is behind the more significant letters does not mean one is not making an impact…

I’d like to avoid the difficult editing stages of polishing a piece of writing, so I may delay doing it, even so ending up having to do it, because I just gotta. It is thinking about what I want out of the piece that motivates me to “rise up” mentally and take the bull to the horns as they say. Without a good polish, I am left with regret and sorrow over a piece that could have been so much better with a polish. Then, there’s someone saying, “it’s all good” which makes me feel better, but not reassured. To be reassured is knowing that the piece is good in my own mind–but thanks for the encouragement, very much. Keep on polishing until satisfied.
A way to be understood if someone cannot distinguish your speech. Say one is asking another person what spread she wants on her toast. One may say, “Do you want cheese?” The other person cannot distinguish the word cheese. They say, “Weeze?” To be understood, the first person says, “The mouse likes cheese.” The other person understands when you bring a context. Everyone knows mice like cheese! “Oh, you said cheese. No, I’ll have peanut butter.”
