The Struggle Continues

Continuing on the newfound drive for, well, drive. With regards to writing, I have in mind some anecdote from someone and I can't quite remember who it came from. I'd like to think Hunter S. Thompson, but I'm thinking it was more likely Seinfeld. Quick stop to Google... yeah, Seinfeld. Well, I'm sure people other then Seinfeld have said that. Not that I don't like Seinfeld at all, he's just not normally who I think of in terms of inspiration. That reminds me of something else I wanted to get down, but another time for that.

This all reminds me of a line of thought for how there should be a better non-linear software aided way of writing. Brendan had some thoughts along those lines. And I suppose this is a step in the right direction.

About Time I Got This Started

I've been contemplating creating a blog for years and somehow never gotten around to it, instead just filling up occasional notebooks with random thoughts. A large reason for that has been laziness. Well, that and I didn't want to have to put my thoughts together in a way that was organized and presentable for the general public, but I suppose that's just another brand of laziness. Shame about that.

I used to think a lot more for fun. Then came college and jobs and those sapped a good deal of that energy. When you're breaking your mind all day it's awfully easy to turn to a beer and TV in the evening, but that's not how I want to go about life. Hopefully setting this blog up will prompt me to get back to my roots a bit more, force me to do some original thinking again. That, and be a lot easier to search through then dozens of notebooks hiding around my room.
