A eureka moment!

I have just read a great post about writing by Catherynne M. Valente:
Rules for Anchorites - Poetry Is the Blood-Jet

My reply:
Thank you for writing this.

It explains/describes to me where I am with my writing (poetry and prose) and why I have not written much for so many years. I am no longer an angsty teenager with loads of baggage pulling me apart at the seams. I am now a better balanced 40+ with loads of baggage that is, these days, teaching me many life lessons every day.

I used to write by stream-of-conciousness and to never/rarely edit. Maybe the way I now am and my learned day to day self-editing means that I need to learn/practice writing in a more considered manner. With editing! ;-p

Thank you again.
