Jigsaw with no matching pieces
I downloaded some software the other day to help with writing this blog. I have a lot of random ideas and needed something to jot them down in a non sequential way. The program is good as it allows the addition of off the cuff ideas, images and text to an otherwise blank canvas. It’s like a cross between a word processor and a desktop publishing suite. I like working this way as there is no format to adhere to. Though the program is good, rather than simplifying the process it’s actually making writing the blog more complicated. I look at the screen and see a representation of what my inner head must look like and this scares me. The inner head looks like a massively confused jigsaw with no matching pieces. There’s definitely no shortage of material to draw from. In fact the opposite is true and I’m considering setting up a second blog and calling it ‘Random acts of randomness’. The only problem I can see with this is that the second blog will spawn a third and this this will in turn give birth to another. If this happens, I’ll be forced to take over the internet and I don’t have the time for that!
