I need to cut down on the commas and take a break from the incomplete sentences.
I don’t normally have a lot of rules for this blog, but enough is enough.
As the new year gets rolling, I’ve looked back at some of my 2014 posts. Usually, I write what comes to mind and then it’s gone. I don’t look back. There may be a reason I don’t look back because, holy commas and odd lists. It’s as if I’ve forgotten how to put together a sentence. Maybe I truncated somewhere in May of last year, and like a favorite sweater, I could not take it off?
A brain reboot may be in order because I noticed that the clipped trend got progressively worse as the year went on. I ended 2014 and even started 2015 swimming in a sea of random things strung together by commas. I am not a poet, if I were a poet, this might be cool, but I fear in my case, it’s laziness.
Maybe I became bored with those filler words that, well sort of make a compete sentence? It’s time to step back from the bullet listing comma party and find my big girl sentence structure again, at least for a little while.
I also cleaned the dust bunnies out from under my bed last night and organized my closet. New year, time to kick out some of the stale habits and freshen up.
I knew I would get here eventually.
The 2015 calendar is out of the plastic and up on my wall. While I do not make New Year’s resolutions, I am all about complete sentences and folded sweaters, at least until I’m not.
My thoughts from the laundry room. Good Night’s Sleep.
