The Unrepentant Individual

A Million Monkeys

I was once asked by my older brother, after I sent him a link to Peak Liberty, “Where did you learn to write like that?” He seemed generally surprised that his own brother might be able to put a string of words together into a cohesive thought.

But the simple fact is that nobody has taught me to write like this. Much like the infinite monkey theorem, I just pound away randomly at this keyboard, and what you see is what you get.

I never learned to write; The Unrepentant Individual is all a matter of blind statistical improbability. I’m amazed it has contined for as lngaas iti hassssss, nd itss nly a mttrftime befr aksd dddddfjkl;dasjdl kf;jlksda;l;v nrqregvea;ughq 9n3vfdnos;vdsa f;jgh8hern gvnbujdsv gg9oehjv dspfjg 80g hjgsr

  1. We learn to write by reading more and writing more. It sounds too simple to be true, but that’s it.

    I just had this discussion earlier in the week with some teachers who are looking for ideas for how to improve the writing skills of their students. I pointed out to them that writing is just like any other learned skill – the more we see somebody do it correctly, modeling the skill, the more likely we are to do it correctly and well ourselves.

    Would I be kissing your ass if I said that is why I am here reading you? ;)

  2. Kissing my ass? Probably not… Apparently not laughing at the humor I was intending to put into that post though!

  3. It was just a matter of time until the laws of statistics came to their senses and your random monkey typing reverted to true form!
