Five-Hundred Word Challenge 920: Rather Rusty

A couple of days without much writing and already I feel rather rusty. This is not a feeling of goodness and I need to find a way to shake it off, but then it becomes a question of how as I’ve no idea as to how I’m going to shake off the rust and get going with what it is that I’m trying to get going with.

Sure, I could try and shale it all off y engaging in the act of writing, but how would that really go? There’s too much error and risk and worry around that to make it a worthwhile endeavour, so therefore I will not be doing any writing today as that seems like a rather foolish and dangerous thing to do right now.

Instead of all of that, what I will do is think about this. I will think about the problem and try to work out an appropriate solution. Maybe even the only solution. It is difficult to tell at this juncture as to what that solution would be, but of course I have plenty of time to try and work it out and so there will be no speculation at all.

The first thing I need to do is define the problem. I need to define it so that I can think about it in a clear and concise manner, which is what would happen once I’m at the end of the thinking about the problem. At the start everything will be a bit more hazy and that is due to needing to cut a path around and through things slowly. There will be some mistakes, of course, but eventually what it is that will be completely defined will reveal itself to me and then I will be able to go from there.

However (there is always a however) what  the correct route to take from there might not be so clear. Thankfully the pathways are short and I don’t need to go down any of them as of yet. What I need to do beforehand is make sure that I am certain of the definition of the problem.

Once this is done, then it will be the time to take the paths of which one I shall choose, but not before I have defined the paths. Therefore there shall be more thinking about what each path means. Maybe from there I will work quickly, but of course this is something that needs to be carefully thought out so as to make sure. Still, I suspect that this won’t take long compared to the first issue.

Then from there, I will weigh up the paths and the one that reveals itself to be the most likely of having success in execution of shaking off the proverbial rust so I can get back into writing is the one that I shall choose to take.

I think this is going to take most of the day and so I shall get to it now.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 05:11:87

I feel I’ve been a little too slothful over the past few days.
That said, I think this bit of writing is alright. I’ve written better, but I’ve written much worse.

Written at home.
