I've got a good idea for a post and I started writing it tonight. I had several paragraphs down but when I looked back over what I'd written, the words seemed hollow and thin.
There was a time when I would have continued to write and "settled", but this is a good idea and I chose to lay it aside for now and have another go at it when the idea has had a chance to percolate a little in my brain. I think of it as composting. You put a few scraps in there, throw in a little manure, stir it around and let it breathe. Before you know it, you have something thick and rich. Of course I could wind up full of manure. My wife has said that of me on more than one occasion.
