Writing

i actually like to write. it's just the getting started that is the hard part. i have a paper to write for a class. it's due wednesday and i have to do a 10 minute presentation on the material. they say the #1 fear of most people is public speaking. i actually don't mind it at all. maybe i just like the sound of my own voice (it is sexy). i have done the research for the paper, but i am completely putting off writing it (i am sitting at Panera now under the guise of writing said paper, but i am writing here instead). once i get going, i will really enjoy writing it.

it started me thinking about writing before computers, word processors, and typewriters. i remember not having a computer in high school and having to go to my mom's office to use her typewriter. i did this through my 2nd year of college when i finally bought a computer. it's crazy to think about the amazing works of literature, science, theology, etc. that were written by hand. the time it must have taken! these men and women must really have believed in what they were writing (or been getting paid serious cash to do it). i hope i can say the same for the words i take the time to put on paper. (especially the cash part!)
