I am Frustrated with Writing!!


CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS

I AM FRUSTRATED WITH WRITING!!

Nancy Briskay Cornell Lipsius

     I’m convinced that writing is a way of working things out, achieving growth and communication in ways that cannot be accomplished otherwise. I believe that ultimately, more knowledge is humbling, in that the more we know the more we recognize how little we know. Carolyn 

     The following writing was created by my late mother. She graduated from the University of Maine/Presque Isle in 1992, at the age of 70, with a B. A. degree in behavioral science/psychology degree. She spent one semester at Bangor Theological Seminary trying to earn her Master’s, but decided she was getting too old to spend all her time in school and left the Seminary to do volunteer work.

     Why can’t I write anything that comes out of ME?

      I feel as though I don’t have any knowledge about ANYTHING. At least not enough to write more than a page or two. And even that seems inane.

     Is that why I am in school? OF COURSE!

     Where does ANYONE get enough time to study and contemplate JUST ONE THING until he knows it through and through and can write reams and reams of information about what he KNOWS of that thing?

     Right now, this minute, I feel as though the doors of my mind have been SEALED SHUT for years and years and that NOTHING of any importance has filtered through.

     I think I am getting ANGRY.

     I HOPE SO.

     This is just a mess—-junk.

  1. Just wanted to let you know, Carolyn, that it was the University of Maine at Presque Isle that Mom got her BA from. She spent one semester at Bangor Theological Seminary trying to earn her Master’s, but decided she was getting too old to spend all her time in school and left the Seminary to do volunteer work.
