Eliminating So

Standard

For a while now, I have recognized that I start every second sentence or so with “so”. Rather ridiculous to think I am a fairly good writer when I cannot even start my sentences with a more meaningful word than “so”, no?!

Well (that’s not so!), I think it is because I do not think I have very much to say. And in fact, I do not have very much to say. Between motherhood, self-employment, life-building, and crafting, my mind goes to wander off into its own world and when I get to sit down to write about the (more or less) crazy thoughts, they’re usually gone.

In an attempt to write more elaborately about the thoughts I have on a daily basis, I will have to create a writing space. Not a physical space, I have that now that I bought an 18€ desk at Ikea a few weeks back. But a space in my mind and schedule that will allow me to write without starting my sentences with “so”.

  1. loading one’s brain with many thoughts can come crashing when we finally sit to write. however, i know myself, i have written my life story in a book, actually three books and i never missed a beat. the thing to remember about writing, is to find that space of your own, just sit there on the laptop,/ keyboard and think and write whatever you feel. the rest should come naturally
