My writing fell out
I have tried writing three different posts and have had no success. I am not sure why, so I am going to use my son’s excuse. Sometimes when I try to speak with him in Hebrew he tells me that his Hebrew fell out and he can only speak English.
Ok, can’t argue with that logic. It must have fallen out. We spend time searching for it, and sometimes we find it.
So tonight I guess my writing fell out, the skill that allows me to communicate effectively must have slipped out of my skull, or should I say that it leaked out. Yes, leaked out sounds far more appropriate. It is raining here, so maybe when I danced through the street, up my driveway and into the house it fell out.
And now I find that I cannot seem to write a coherent post, at least not a serious topic. It is shameful and disappointing. Even a little frustrating. There is no reason why it should be difficult, at least not this difficult.
Writing is a simple thing, really it is. What you need to communicate your thoughts is the following:
1) Story-Plot call it what you want.
2) It has a beginning, middle and end.
3) Simple words that explain how it began, what happened, why it happened and what the end result will be.
Bingo, three basic steps and you have a post that is sensible. Ok, maybe not sensible but at least it is easy to read and there you have it. But I can’t seem to make that happen, it just is not flowing and that irks me.

All we can do is try our best. Sometimes we meet the task and sometimes we do not.

I always have trouble with endings. I have a beginning (debateable)…I use simple words….but no ending. My posts just seem to peter out.
I think you are a wonderful communicator and a very intelligent writer.
