Different Writing Selves

Happy Friday morning. I was coming into work this morning and thought about the blog. I wondered why with certain posts I can't start them and add here and there when I get the chance. And then realized it's because I'm in a different mood (writer) at different times. 

I had read somewhere that artists sometimes seem to be possessed by a spirit when they change into "character." Like a musician who has an alter ego (or a few) on stage that they claim takes over when they perform. 

I'm not saying that's happening to me. I'd like to think it's my soul, just different versions of it, but it's there. I was looking at my blog writing self as a different person than the writing self that had been thinking about... well, you get the picture. (I hope). 

The different writer version of myself, or the others, would look at the things I wrote and go, "hmmm, well, maybe I wouldn't have wrote it that way," or cringe at times. 

I guess when applying this to writing and submitting, it's a good idea to edit, no doubt, but don't take too long because whatever raw product that might have been there at one point can run the risk of being edited into a writing graveyard if looked over too many times. 

Ah, I think the blog faucet is starting to run out, just wanted to turn it on for a bit to get some of the rust out of the pipes. 

Now it's time for writing...before the hell of the day job... 

Keep writing!
