It then comes to this; I’ve got two drafts waiting, and it is a long time since I wrote my last post. It all comes down to me not being able to focus on one topic at a time. I’m digressing (is that even a verb?) all over the place, and then end up writing something other than what I started writing.

Sometimes I wonder if I should blog with a mindmap or a wiki. I wrote myself a WordPress digression plugin at one time, but it doesn’t work with newer wordpresses. I don’t think I ever used it. The whole idea was having digressions hidden; allowing the reader to pop them up if they wanted. There are probably loads, and I know there is at least one good, plugins providing like functionality. Usually by name of asides or something like them. Now I’ve gone and done it again.

I want to write something for this month’s Round Table, hosted by Corvus at Man bytes blog. It is in production, though it tends to run overboard. I’ve changed the title thrice already, but I think I have settled on what I want to write about.

The major problem is that my spare time has been invaded by me playing Ultima Underworld. I found out it was long since I played it last time, and that I actually had forgot a few things. It also seems as if I’m trying to break a few things this time around. I’ve met and talked to the Humans and Mountain men, but not yet the Goblins. I also want to play a tiny bit in an all time favorite of mine; Betrayal at Krondor. I really should just sit down and write the post.

I think a lot. I like to think.

As I delve deeper into what has been called the Blogosphere I get across lots and lots of information; thought and rants and reviews and discussions… stuff that make me think.

Reading, listening, watching. It all makes me think, but keeping my thoughts to myself is kind of limiting. It doesn’t lead anywhere. No new impulses. I kill the thoughts, removing (almost) any chance of discovering holes in my logic, strength in my views.

Thoughts have little value if not shared, but I am scared at the prospect of sharing my thoughts. What if I think stupid thoughts? If I get responses, do I have to respond? What if I have no good response? What to do with responses I don’t agree with? With responses that make me not agree with what I wrote?

Other people have had these questions themselves before me, I have seen examples of this being solved. I’ll try and post my thoughts, my responses to other people here.

Wish me luck.
