nanowrimo 2010

I'm writing again.

I just saw a post in Google+ by Avery Tingle saying he wrote 50k words in 3 days. I remember the days when I used to sit down, slip into a trance, and rise hours later having written 10k words. That doesn't really happen anymore. Sad, really. I miss that feeling of immersion in my writing. Every sentence is a bit of a challenge now. I don't think it is because of my vision, or not solely because of my lessened ability to see. Truthfully, my apprehension of the world is slipping in many respects. As I see less, I concentrate less. As I concentrate less, I find myself less involved. My apprehension of the world (look it up in the dictionary, I'm not talking about being scared - sense 5) is distinctly lessened by my inability to concentrate and to focus. All that information is in my brain, but I can't seem to reach it. I forget words. I "learn" new words and discover that I've been using the word I just "learned" in my writing for years. <SIGH>
