No Long Reads Here
I write the way I speak, and I write what I would want to read. Though I tend to be wordy, and revel in descriptive words, my posts are quite succinct. My brain is swirly. Focus is intense, but short lived. I write to settle my thoughts, to get them out, and to make room for more.
You won’t find many long reads here. Frankly, I can’t produce or consume them! If I open a blog post and see I have to scroll three times to take it all in, I back away slowly. If it’s by an author I’m friends with, or content I really need or want, I’ll work on it through the day, bits at a time.
I’d love to build a longer attention span, but I won’t force it. I’m often frustrated by my flighty nature, but I also see the beauty in it, like the buzz of a hummingbird’s wings. All I can be is me.
