I have something to admit.
I’m a hijacker.
Of posts and threads…
I can’t help myself. As with most things I adore, I am COMPELLED. Compelled to write one liners and quippy rejoinders – I could go on for hours. I can’t pass a dry erase board and not write something, especially if it’s been written on first. Then it’s like the marker JUMPS into my hand and before I know it – I’m writing something. Snarky.
What’s great is when you find a few people that you click with, in terms of writing style, than you can go back and forth on a thread for a long time. It must drive everyone else crazy. But you don’t have to read it if you don’t want to – that’s kind of the beauty of ‘freedom of choice’. It was easier on everybody when I was just a student passing notes back & forth, but now, everyone is sort of subjected to me and my follies… C’est la vie!
I think what I particularly like about that back & forth type of writing is the interaction; your writing can play off of someone else’s – especially if the back & forth is skewed towards witty/funny. Other people’s words are a great inspiration for my own. I would love to figure out how to take that flow of writing and put it into the context of something larger but I don’t know what that would be at this point. I’m pretty sure these back & forth ‘conversations’ are just amusing to the two involved…
But anyway – if I’ve hijacked on one of your posts on WordPress or Facebook, I probably should apologize…I’m sorry but I cannot help myself. Don’t hate me because I’m compelled. And verbose…and think myself witty…regardless of the truth….
