Purrosphere (Catfinition): A global network connecting millions of computers dedicated to sharing information and images of cats. Sometimes arcanely referred to as the Internet.
Sometimes, I heard some of the lyrics of this song and think, those are the perfect words for an organic writer.
I’m riffing off the E.L. Doctorow quotes:
“Writing is like driving at night in the fog. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.”
Yes, that’s my sentiment. Sometimes wrong turns are taken. So when I hear these words from the Oasis song, “Wonderwall,” I think of the Doctorow quote:
And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
The song continues, “There are many things that I would like to say to you, but I don’t know how.” That seems to me what writing is often about; we see the scenes and the characters, and seek to explain, but we don’t know how. That’s writing.
Here it is, from nineteen ninety-five, “Wonderwall.”
Floofstep (Catfinition): A spontaneous and awkward dance to avoid a cat acting as a floofmat, floofstruction, or on an intercept course to make a demand, or beg for food or attention.
