I know that I am a good writer.
What frustrates me is that I don’t always have the time or the inclination to show it.
I find it fascinating to proofread other people’s work.
People messing up there, their, and they’re will inevitably make me growl under my breath, roll my eyes, and cringe.
I use big words because I don’t know the smaller word that means the same thing. I’m not being pretentious. I just learned to read at a very young age. And many of my “books of instruction” were the Baha’i Writings.
I know that I am bad at writing fiction. I love reading it, but am often picky about the quality.
Books I’ve finished recently: Cryptonomicon, The Alchemist, The Valkyries. Baha’i Book: The Seven Valleys and the Four Valleys. I have a list about a mile long of Baha’i books that I want to read. Perhaps over break? I’m slowly working on the Kitab-i-Aqdas.
Forgive me if I’ve forgotten your birthday. If I haven’t called or emailed you back. If I seem distracted when I say hello or shake your hand. If I wander off in the middle of a conversation or forget what we were talking about. If I vent my frustration and forget to ask how you are doing.
I’m working on it. Give me a few more weeks until finals are over.
