A Scripted Maze

perils with writing and whatnot

The Start of a Project

I’ve tried regular writing, you know, pen and paper, to get the kind of practice I want in writing. My right hand and arm get in the way of what I’m doing, which makes it hard for me to concentrate on what I’m trying to portray in words. I actually have a legible handwriting with my left hand. Of course, I would. I’m a naturally born lefty. However, trying to steady the paper with my right is a disaster because I have lost all usable ability in my right hand and arm. Damn disability!

I tried typing ‘document type’ text on my PC. That was better than trying to write long hand. Quite a bit better, in fact. I guess I could have continued to keep up at this writing thing that way, but a white screen with black print on it just isn’t very motivational. After I have written some, enough to say that I haven’t been goofing off, I would like to review my work, proofread it for the umpteenth time, and edit it once again with a little designing flare.

Yes, I am, for sure, a visual type of wench.

That brings me to the creation of this blog, Speculations Impressed. This blog is, hopefully, going to get me off my butt with what I’ve wanted to do for so long. And what I mean by long is decades. I am so close to being considered old that there are times when I can almost taste it in the back of my mouth. It isn’t a bad ‘almost taste’. Nevertheless, I don’t want to end my life without have tried to write something meaningful that I can, at least, consider the possibility of publishing.

It isn’t overdone with visual styling. In fact, it’s rather simple. Still, I was able to choose a header, and if I decide I don’t like the background of the page being white (not including where to posts are on the page, I can change that too. I wish I could change the color of the links, but I’m not going to fuss about it. The crimson red isn’t disgusting. I’m just not too sure that it’s a good accent color to be with the muted dusty purple that is the major color other than white.

Later on today, I will be writing a post that, I hope, will show some talent.
