I write, therefore I am. And so in keeping with my forte, I need to begin a more vigorous schedule of blogging, and since tweeting is also a form of writing, I should make an attempt to do that more often as well.
If you’re wondering what might have caused this sudden increase in my urgency to write, it has much to do with a book I’m preparing for self-publication, and a keynote speaker request.
I have to make myself write. You’d think it’d come naturally; after all, I claim “Freelance Writer” as my job title, so writing should be easy, right? It is and it isn’t. When I know what I’m going to write about, it’s easy, when I don’t it’s not. So, you’d think I’d make it easier on myself to know the topic beforehand, but most of the time I don’t. I wonder if having a list of topics would help? I could set up a schedule of weekly topics, I’d need 52 of them. I think that’s a good idea, I never thought of doing that before now. (Having a list of topics would also be great for my garden lectures.)
Would y’all help me out please? It’d sure be nice if you’d mention a few things in a comment. It can be any topic about any aspect of gardening and/or gardens. And if y’all would come up with 52 of them, I’d not have to do anything but the writing about it part! Thanks so much for your input and I know I’ll see lots of great suggestions!
Some of you are philosophers, I just know it. So I thought I’d include a link to some René Descartes text and let him explain how he came up with the phrase “I think, therefore I am.” I sometimes have doubts about what is really truth and what isn’t. But all of us have those same doubts and it takes a fair amount of wisdom to discern Truth from Untruth. Or as Descartes puts it: “And I judged that I might take it as a general rule that the things which we conceive very clearly and very distinctly are all true, and that the only difficulty lies in the way of discerning which those things are that we conceive distinctly.”
