I Can’t Write Like Eric.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 8:45 pm

Check out how Eric described this morning on his deck.

Pretty amazing, no? He grabs the moment with a vice-like grip and only lets go once he’s squeezed every bit of beauty out of it.

If I had written the piece, it would have looked something like this:

Yo! I’m freezing my stindeens off out here. Farookin’ boids! They annoy the dogshit outta me.

I need a goddamned drink.

I can’t write like Eric, but I wish I could.


  1. Yes, he is amazing isn’t he? But then so are you, in YOUR way. That’s what I love in reading of the blogs. So many styles and so many facinating ways to look at things through someone elses eyes.

  3. I can write like Eric.

    At least, I can mimic his style. But on more than one occasion, Eric and I will see the exact same thing and write completely different posts about it. It’s his way of seeing the world – very different from mine – that makes his writing so enjoyable. The style is just the icing on the cake.

    Same, of course, goes for you – and for most any writer worth reading.

  6. Well, the flipside of that is, Eric – talented as he is – might not do justice the way you can to Joizey Political Commentary, and nobody Catblogs or Parodies like Elisson, and Absolutely No Human Soul could even touch V-Man’s observation on Jockstraps and Hairless Pubic Mounds.

    Everyone’s different. I love the way you write.

  7. Heheh… he do be one of my faves, but you’re right up there with him, Jimbo. There’s many who have different styles, but they are all kick ass in their right.

    I feel so damn out of place when I hang with you guys… like a little kid looking up at giants. Imagine that.. heheheh.
