Too many words

I haven’t been blogging much lately and that seems to be the opening line of my last few blog posts. Recurring theme perhaps? It’s not that I haven’t had anything to blog about, no quite the opposite. My brain is full of blog fodder, but getting it in order is the difficult part.

When I come to blog I tend to let the words just roll off my fingertips, direct from my brain. A lot of the time they don’t make much sense until I go back and edit them, putting them in a sensible order and polishing the paragraphs so they are nice and shiny. But lately I’ve been confused.
