Blogging Deficit Disorder

One thing is certainly true; the length of time between posts to Leftsider has little to do with available time. It has much more to do with an aversion to anything in the long form: reading, writing, and even watching—whether live or cinematic.

It’s as if my brain has now been hand crafted for the 140-character Tweet, the persistent notification and the instant gratification. Unlike those southern residents who were seemingly content to exist without objective, Even that with a plot falls if it doesn’t catch me quickly.

I worry about this. I worry about what I’m sacrificing in order to flourish in the moment. I wonder if there are larger effects that aren’t being considered.

Most of all I wonder if I’ll ever get all the things in my head out and onto this blog.
