When I write, my mind is blank. I am thinking of nothing. If I have to think, no writing is happening. One of the reasons I can hold a conversation or even watch a movie while writing is that it requires absolutely no real cogitation of any kind.
I wrote a 1,000 word essay in about 30 minutes a bit ago (not for this site) and I had no thoughts in my head any of that time. If I had been thinking, no essay. You might think that if I focused some thought at it, my writing would improve. Absolutely not; it either happens not at all or just becomes incoherent ramblings.
Thanks, brain, for doing all that. I don’t know what’s going on up there but it works. I am far better at writing than I am at IT, but writing pays nothing. But if it did, I’d be set.
