Use it or Lose IT

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.
