For the Fun of It

Do you ever forget some part of you for a while? Unintentionally, I mean. Life stops for nothing, and often I find myself realizing it has been an awfully long time since I have done insert hobby/passion here. It has been an awfully long time since I have done any true writing. I have some advice you may be in need of.

I think the best advice I have heard lately is to write the way you speak. How simple is that? Write how you speak. Each of us has a voice, and somewhere along the way we forget this. Well, maybe you havenโ€™t, but I have. Personally, I like looking back on my writing and hearing bits of my personality. I donโ€™t always speak with proper grammar or with the correct idiom, and I havenโ€™t quite mastered the semicolon, and I think that lends something to my character. I think allowing our flaws to peek through is important.

I recently purchased a simple plastic camera with black and white film. Iโ€™ve always been interested in photography, and the only reason I havenโ€™t done more with that interest is I havenโ€™t explicitly set out to do so. Now, the camera I purchased is nothing special; in fact, it was very inexpensive. I am inclined to believe the pictures I will be taking will never mean as much to anyone else as they do to me, so Iโ€™m going to have fun with it.

Have you done anything for the fun of it lately? If not, take a minute and think about some things you would like to do. Youโ€™re the only thing in your way.
