I will explain the above comment in due course in a future post but tonight I am taking advantage of that other persona and borrowing this post “Writing Is…” to fill a space for an altogether different post I might have written if my laptop or as a writer I might refer to her as my trusty time and space traveller, for she does take me anywhere I want to go. It is not quite the TARDIS, Time and Relative Dimensions In Space. Now, for us Dr. Who fans, that would be the coolest device ever to own or possess.

Anyway, my laptop is on her way tomorrow, by then today, to go to get herself analyze and hopefully fixed and exorcised of the gremlins inside of her. I guess someone has been feeding her after midnight. For Shame. So I will be without her for about a week, They are going to do a rush job. So after tonight, the only devices I will have are my Tablet, my Kindle Touch and pen and paper to create my posts for “the secret keeper.” Plus, my partner said I could borrow her other laptop to finish off my posts. I need her laptop to do my art work and to do all the intricate activities of putting a post to bed,

So I have had in the past five days been to bed to sleep once. Otherwise, I have been trying to get my laptop to work, That meant I was on the phone with tech support hours on end, day and night trying to get her to work right. But with no success. She is so quirky at the moment, she could so most anything unexpectedly. So I better get this post reposted and off or out into the world. I do hope you enjoy and would like to make Writing is… comments of your own. The very last one on this repost is from someone who did just that. It was a terribly good comment and that is why I included it in this repost.

So now enjoy and be patient with me over the next week. I will try to create some thought prvoking posts, some serious, some funny and maybe some even sexy or sensuous. One never knows what to expect, not even me and I spend the most time with myself. It should be interesting how things turn out with my computer addiction. I wonder what the withdrawal symptoms will be. I do hope the good part will be that I will get some sleep for the next week.

Enjoy and wish my time traveller companion good luck on her adventure. Now to “Writing is…” jk the secret keeper…

It started as a rough edition of a list that I found and have developed and added to.

Definition: writing is the representation of language in a textual medium through the use of a set of signs or symbols (known as a writing system). It is distinguished from illustration, such as cave drawing and painting, and non-symbolic preservation of language via non-textual media, such as magnetic tape audio. writing most likely began as a consequence of political expansion in ancient cultures, which needed reliable means for transmitting information.

Definition: The recording of words or sounds in significant characters; in the most general sense, any use of or method of using letters or other conventional symbols of uttered sounds for the visible preservation or transmission of ideas; specifically, as distinguished from printing, stamping, incision, etc., the act or art of tracing graphic signs by hand on paper, parchment, or any other material, with a pen and ink, style, pencil, or any other instrument; also, the written characters or words; handwriting.

But here, this list is coming more from a creative and philosophical nature. The images I choose to represent in Writing is… give you an abstract as well as an informative travel through the many forms in which we take the thoughts from our minds and begin the process of creativity and recording them.

Enjoy the journey.

A comment made at the end by “ontheplumtree” when I first posted this post that I thought was quite intelligent and quite clever and with this quote I will bring an end to this repost:

…ontheplumtree 2012, 6:13 am at 6:13 am
Writing is…A way to allow soul into life; a mightier weapon than war; a medium through which we are one; through thought, Word and deed, we are works of the universe.

  1. You have said it all! But for me, writing is the rhythm and flow of thought; a vehicle of soul; healing for heart; almost as essential as breathing, waking, sleeping; a release of tension; dramatic focus, the urge to immortalize; jam for bread; discipline; encapsulation of rambling meanderings into succinct coherence. I know I could go on and on and …but that means writing and writing is…

    • You have captured the true essence of what writing is esp. the jam and bread. It’s sweet spread on solid & healthy. It touches the soul & expresses it’s inner meaning as far as it allows one to perceive. It is a stream of consciouness of thoughts and feelings & ramblings which can be quite revealing. Writing is non-sense when one wants it to be free from the boundaries of a confined normalcy of reality. Writing is creating colours with words without the actual colour being visible outside of the eye, in this case an imagery. Writing is the artist’s way of expressing a painting without words. I am going to create anothing post on what writing is & really let the imagination get even wilder in its expression of presenting what Writing is… Maybe the lost time traveller can be found. 🙂 jk. Ps. I do not feel I would be able to breathe another breath with the knowledge that I would never be able to write again. It is my heart & how she goes on beating. It’s the source of my strength & leads me out of the chaos & confusion. It is my way of sorting out life & the wonderment of philosophy & meanings of existence, life & death & infinity & even what the the possibilities are beyond them both & what about birth?
