Rereads & Housecleaning

As an English teacher, I stressed the importance of rereading, rewriting, and rethinking ones writing.  Its best to be in a good mood before you start.  Tonight, I reread quite a few of my blogs and was left with the taste of sawdust in my mouth.  Better to leave it for tomorrow.  I find that as I contemplate taking this writing thing more seriously, I am looking with a more critical eye at my writing.  I think I need to trim the fat, clean up my lines, get more clear and concise in my language.  Lots of work to do.  Must get into shape. 
So here goes.  I will try to discipline myself again to writing....on a weekly basis.  I'll work my way up to daily.  Can't run a marathon right off the shot. 
I'll start with brisk walking and build from there.
