I feel like I’m a little too stuffy when I write in this blog. I keep a personal journal online that is password-protected so only friends can read it. Naturally, I’m less self-conscious when I write there. Somehow, the idea that anybody at all from anywhere can read what I’m posting here makes me just uptight enough, that I suspect it affects my writing style for the worse.
So here’s what I wrote in my personal journal last night:
My depression lifted temporarily when I realized that I know exactly what to do from the bottom of p.53 forward, for several pages to come. Then I veered off and corrected that part of The Royal Rhapsody that bugged me. I hear another part that bothers me in the same section. All these annoyances have to do with a sense of something dropping out, some kind of eerie ethereal support that is created by the string section, or other instruments capable of extending tones over a number of measures.
But enough of my stuff. I noticed I felt extremely focused while working on the Rhapsody, so I might go back to that. Depression and anxiety seemed far from me. That music production process is just something that rivets me to it. With the script, even knowing what to do, I still rack my brains out over little things – tiny little mini-unknowns that crop up in the midst of the Known.
Bottom line is I’m dog tired. Not sure why. Ran really well yesterday, and obviously faster than usual with the Nanospikes. Maybe that’s a factor. Whatever, I saved a cup for the morning and I’m gonna crash out after a snack. I’ll run in the morning, and probably have a decent day tomorrow. These three day weekends sort of throw the Sunday night vibe onto Mondays. Can’t wait till morning.

If you like that style or manner of delivery better than the way I’m writing here, feel free to let me know. Or, if it appears to be the same style, or even a worse manner of presentation, clue me in. I won’t be offended, though I can’t promise you I’ll be able to readily change. We O.G’s have a tendency not to flex as easily as we did back in the Day.
One thought on “Unknowns”
Personally, I prefer the writing style you use at the moment; there are too many bloggers who use an informal note-like journal style, so it’s good to have someone who writes in longer prose.
