One of my favorite quotes about writing comes from Hemingway, "there is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” Some days I am really in the groove with my writing, I am inspired, geared up and ready to roll! My fingertips hit the keys without breaking their rhythm and I am just clicking away. Other days, it is just not happening. My fingers are frozen in the perch over the keyboard or worse, the majority of the clicking heard is that of the backspace key deleting my previous thought or sentence.
That is what I have felt like for the past few days! I am working on an article, actually a re-write of a previous blog article and it is just not turning out all that great. I wanted to expand upon ideas and give more examples but now I feel I might be better off just scrapping the re-write altogether.
I know a lot of you Scientopians blog but what else do you do? Are you in grad school? Doing research? In medicine? I only have a few days left here on the guest blog and would love to get to know you all a little better before I say goodbye!
Also, is there anything you have ever wanted to know about vision science? Any questions I could answer? Are optical illusions and eye tricks too corny for you guys? What'll it be? I want to serve up some science! Name your pleasure!
And by the way, if I hear crickets, I won't be offended. No worries!
