I confess to being a fiddler.
What do I fiddle with? Now that would be telling wouldn’t it?!
Seriously, I am a fiddler in the sense that I cannot leave well alone. When I draft a post for this blog, I fiddle with it. I change the wording, I check repeatedly for spelling errors and typo’s, I delete whole paragraphs and re-do them.
In other words, I waste time and often at the end of it all, I just trash the post because it’s “not good enough” to post. I dislike spelling errors – we’ve got spellcheck these days for goodness sake – especially in newspaper advertisements. I mutter with annoyance when I see a “chest of draws” or a “four draw filing cabinet” for sale. (Makro sometimes!)
BUT, I have decided to stop fiddling with spelling and grammar as far as I can and ‘publish and be damned’! Maybe that way my faithful subscribers (thank you people!) will see more posts from me and maybe gain some inspiration on their own respective odysseys. Hope so.
