I thought about editing this but just briefly

(briefly looks like it's spelled like some cheese loving fly)

I like to think I'm able to explain certain things to certain people. I'll listen to people and learn their language and offer translations between different groups of people. Words have different meanings to different people. Layman and professionals; know your audience.

Sometimes I know the audience whether it's mine or not. I guess is what I'm saying.

...I forgot the goal of this post.

You can watch and listen and see the nodding of all the heads but your gut tells you things aren't matching up. I'm wary of easy agreements.

The spirit of the law as opposed to the letter of the law; down the road I would rather leave the judges out of it. Open books and nothing up any sleeves.

I think my skill lies in hitting that common chord.

A writer creates a scene with building blocks of the known.

Know how to listen

Know how people hear

Know how to see

Know how people see


A lot of what I know, I've read. I'll start with books and then go for the trade magazines. Yesterday, two of the magazines in hand were Create and Print. http://createmagazine.com/index.php




They referred to themselves as creatives.

I'm not one of them.


I'm still waiting for the chime or note or chord from the heavens to sound to let me know that this is what I should be doing. Or a light shining forth, that would do as well. Or any type of 'revealing moment' event, I'm not that particular.


Sometimes, I'll close my eyes and think about what else would cause that response. I'll think it backwards and then write it forwards.


"Hi. Who's this?"

"It's Timothy Green."

"How are you doing?"

"I'm doing well."

"I like that you said well because most people don't but well is correct."

Yeah, that's why I said it, bitch.

He fusses about too much



Dude. Take a breathe.
