As I get older, I am finding it harder and harder to remember words, which as a writer is not a good thing.
Is this sign in my mid-forties of problems to come? Perhaps…
The frustrating thing is that I read all the time. I had a huge vocabulary at one time but because I rarely got to use it, working retail hardly ever calls for flourishing words, I think my brain is just trained itself to keep things simple.
I understand literature, I follow the context and know what I am reading. I just can’t bring the vocabulary back in writing or speaking.
So now that I am writing again and want to be better than one-liners, I have found some sites that help brain function and development. I’ll be working on this issue.
Youngsters — don’t for stop using your brain!
And anyone else out there going through this too — if you have any tips let me know!
This little spiel is dedicated to J. T. on G+ thanks for the reminder that I am losing my marbles.
