McHale’s Navy, Kafka, Congo, Oklahoma, Hernia

Last night, as I watched McHale’s Navy, I was struck by something Tim Curry said. It reminded me of Kafka. Which made me think of the movie Congo and that made me think of Helen Hunt (I don’t know why) and that led to thoughts of Oklahoma where we have a dart friend who recently had surgery for a hernia which brought my thoughts back to me because I have an ovarian cyst that bothers me from time to time.

The connections the mind makes is an unusual thing. The scattered nature of our random thoughts are still capable of making connections between things that seem unrelated.

Stream of Concious like that above is a tried and true writer’s trick. One I rarely use because my first writing exercise of the day is always taken care of… This blog.

Yes, I am a bit of a prolific blogger. It gets the writing juices flowing in the morning. Sometimes, the posts are planned. Most of the time they are organically grown from my awakening mind.

However, a writing exercise, no matter the form, is still a prod to get the neurons firing and the brain stringing sentences together.

So good morning readers and brain… It is time to start the day!

  1. Huh. Never considered writing blog posts exercises in writing, but they are. Good to know I’m working out my writing brain at least 3-4 times a week 😉


    • You are! Even when your posts are unplanned and “uninteresting” it requires you to flex your brain to create a coherent post. 😀
