Free Writing Day


Day Nineteen: Don’t Stop the Rockin’

Today is a free writing day. Write at least four-hundred words, and once you start typing, don’t stop. No self-editing, no trash-talking, and no second guessing: just go. Bonus points if you tackle an idea you’ve been playing with but think is too silly to post about.

I spent a few days fasting frm online activities.

My weekend was eventful. followed by a holiday. but that is not the reaosn for fasting.

I accidentally washed my iPhone with the laundry. Don’t laugh at me yet . There is more.

Two years ago I dropped my Iphone in the toilet.

I thought I had had enough telephone losses from my sheer stupidity.

I spent one day totally offline except for briefly using my home computer. It wasn’t a bad feeling at all.

I carried on my fasting, as there was hardly any time to blog or email anyways.

One thing bothered me though. I was late with all my wrting 101 assignments and didn’t read or comment on any blog.

It also bothered me when the guy at the phone shop asked me what would be mynext idea to destroyu my phone. I had to laugh though. How cute. Not.

When I was back online on wednesady, I wrote first day sixteen’s task.  I skipped day seventeen as I didn’t like to talk about fear. again?

Fear is so much overemphasized in our society. We live oin fear, , we come to a blogging course and have again to write aboit fear.another subject, please? but not about kim kardashian.

And why is always so personal? shall we write aboyt why people don’t read your posts but still like it, just one second after you posted 1000 words? wow…talking about dynamic reading…theyre geniuses and must have an exceptional IQ. Stop doing that please. i don’t mind if you don’t read. thats ok. relax. but spare yourself the trouble to ‘like’ what you don’t need to.

I wrote about that fear thing last year when doing NaBloPOMo. I haven’t acquired any new fear. That was all. And that is still the same.

I didn’t like some comments back then. That might be the origin of my blockage/hate now.

Why? because i see often in many blogs that when people share something personal, there are commenteerss assuming that they are sharing because they are weak and in in serach of online psychotherepay. I don’t know about other people’s motives, but minee. I don’t use blogging for personal journaling. when I share something here is because I am ok with that and not because I am looking for it?

aha, now you’re thinking that am hiding my feelings…and that i may need to talk about it with someone.. no, i am fairly open and have done psychoanalysis too.  i studied psychology and worked as one before becoming a corporate execjunkie…i like this term..may use it again. but…ues, but… am not one with the universe. privacy is great. i like my anonymity.

I have been and continue being an indeoendent person. I truly don’t favor assumptions and uncsolicited help. and love reciproicty.

If someone blogs aboit their troubles, I may cheer the person up but never will use words implying that the person iss in amess, lost, unable to resolve his or her own problems. people need to hear that they can make it.

I don’t want to post again my take on my worse fears. It may seem like a lazy act. But I may do it. I will think about when I am not wrtig in free flow…When my rationality rules again.

Have I reached at least 400 words yet? guess much more. i write too much.

These ramblongs may be my worse post ever. Typos all over and no meaning.sorry if you hated this..i will now read how much damage i left behind. cannot edit, was fun.

Is this trash-talking?

I trust you gathered that I wrote this draft before eventually deciding to write about fear for day seventeen…

  1. I love this post! I love the way you wrote, just you, no editing, no worries, just straight up Lucile…Loved it and your honesty and candor. Bravissima!


  2. I apologise for laughing throughout most of the post… You are an intricate mixture of the hilarious and the serious. I hazard to say that your personality shines through your words here, as much as I can tell, of course…


    1. You don’t need to apologize. It’s better to hear that you laughed than cursed me for my typos and messy text. I was laughing too.
      Do you realize that I cannot give my phone to you anymore?
      Thanks Mara, appreciate your comment very much.


  3. I think you put all of you on paper with this post….sorry I mean computer screen:))))
    It was refreshing and I think it’s good for our soul to just say it how it is:) Well done!


    1. Thanks Julia!!
      I’m glad it was a computer screen. Nobody would understand my handwriting! Lol
      Yes, it feels good to just say things as we feel they should be said.
      Thanks for bearing with me till the end!! 😉

  4. Yes, I read it before I “liked” it!! It was great typos and all. When I did mine, that was the hardest thing, besides thinking of something to ramble about, not correcting. Not using spell check. Not polishing it up before putting it forward. You did good.


    1. Not really that often. WP app is terrible and if I want to add photos or a gallery, forget it.
      I need to be traveling to do that.
      Or started a draft at home and finished it up later at the iPhone when not at home.
      One needs more than patience with this app.


  5. Oh, Lucile, I loved this post with typos and all! Your rambling was refreshing and I only “like” blog posts after I’ve read them and want to push that button. You are too sweet and your light shines through. I’m sorry that you had a bad experience with your previous Fear posting but it looks like you pushed through and decided to write another, bravo!


    1. Thank you, Barbara. You’re very considerate and a great support to my ramblings.
      I surely know you read my posts. I was referring to those who like on sec after I published a long text and which was impossible to read so fast. Obviously no comment follows.

  6. Free writing is a good writing tool. I think it’s when you’re at your most honest. I love to read flowing posts like this. They give a good window into someone’s thoughts. And we all need a good ramble now and then. 🙂


    1. I do lots of free writing since I was a kid but never thought I would be posting one…
      It’s my eye to eye conversation with myself. Mostly very personal.
      But a good ramble is indeed worth it…
      Thank you!

  7. Absolutely love this and agree with much of what you said. I always love reading your writing and this was no exception.

    Also, so not trash talking. This was sheer honesty and I thought it was brilliant. Trash talking has no real agenda but to hurt others, and that was not this at all.


    1. Britta, you’re so considerate. Writing without knowing what others thinking about it is a lonely exercise and I don’t learn much from monologues.
      I’m grateful for your interest and thoughtful comments, which help me learning and developing my writing skills.
      Thank you.
