Friday -the Wakefield Doctrine- (1/3 Finish the Sentence Friday, 1/3 Almira and 1/2 Doctrine…something for everone!)

Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers)

“…we verbose few, we Band of Bloggers!!”

2 things:

      1. Chapter 2 of ‘Almira‘ will be coming out this weekend. Due to technical difficulties on the site where I wrote the Serial: ‘Blogdominion’, I’ve not yet been able to post Chapters of Almira on that site. I have a wordpress site (click here to go there) for the story. If anything, I appreciate the Readers of Blogdominion, (and now), Almira. Last weekend, I sent links to Chapter 1 to those of you who followed Blogdominion. Of course, anyone can sign up at the blog and have new posts sent to them as they are published. Or, if you’d prefer a more…personal touch, write a comment and I’ll send you the link.
      2. the Wakefield Doctrine is a very useful perspective on life, self and ‘reality’ for those of us out to self-improve ourselfs. And it’s fun!  It’s been proven that, with the studious, industrious, assiduous, meticulous and totally determined application of the principles contained and inherent in out little personality theory, you can change things about yourself that have resisted change, you can improve things about yourself, (provided you feel the need, desire and hope to) that you have only dreamt of and you don’t have to do anything more than add a single, additional, perspective to how you see and interact and respond to the world today. No, really! It’s that much fun, that simple and way cooler than I can present here, on these pages. Give it a try!
        1. Finish the Sentence Friday Friend of the Doctrine Kristi’s bloghop totally grabbed my head this week with the pre-complete sentence:

Sometimes, I wonder about my writing. I keep on and on because…” (Feel free to adapt the sentence to) “I write because…” (or) “I wonder why I write…

I surely would not be here, had I not decided to write a blog. While a fairly self-effacing statement*, I mean it to imply, that here, today, writing this Post is part and parcel with the explanation/illustration/demonstration of why I write. To paraphrase a favorite dead person famous statement, ‘I blog therefore I am

the previous written Thursday evening, the following written Friday (and therefore, technically the actual Finish to the Sentence), morning:

So, now that I’ve had some time to think about the prompt, my response takes a slightly different form**, form not content. The simplest ‘finish’ to this Friday Sentence would be “…because that is where my heart was hiding”.

Thanks virtual and/or imaginary people and friends!


* a rogerian expression of my own construct, surely not as potent as one from a roger, it’s fun. To read all about rogerian expressions, go to rogers

** different from my Reply to Kristi’s Post…last night…late last night (lol…)

Well, what exactly do you want to know? Whether I am a clark or a scott or roger? If you have to ask, then you need to keep reading the Posts for two reasons: a)to get a clear enough understanding to be able to make the determination of which type I am and 2) to realize that by definition I am all three.* *which is true for you as well, all three...but mostly one

    Virtual and in rl friend is touched by your simple words “that is where my heart was hiding.”

  2. Aw!! What a sweet ending to the sentence. Love it!

    You’re sounding dangerously warm and fuzzy there, Clark ;)

      He should be on his mettle ….

      • ivywalker says:

        being part roger I usually dont collect favorite lines… but I do have one from that… lion to tinman… ” How long do you stay fresh in that tin can?”

  5. I like that… it’s where my heart was hiding. So sweet, but means so much. Stopping by from FTSF.

  6. herheadache says:

    An excellent philosophy you have here.
    Glad you started.

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      yeah, thanks for reading… (going to try to get more specific/explicit with the uses of the Wakefield Doctrine in the warming of the weather).

  7. Denise says:

    LOL on Henry V for surely those were the actual words spoken :D

  8. I love your response to the prompt! Writing is where my heart is hiding too.

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      thank you… the (blogosphere and the people) make for a pretty amazing place

  9. Dana says:

    Where your heart is hiding…so true for me too. I know I don’t know you well, but I will agree with Lizzi…that’s pretty warm and fuzzy! I love it.

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      oh man! I asked her not to say anything! lol

      I will say that there is an intensity to the supportiveness in both the TToT and the FTSF bloghops, but, given the people who are behind them, I am not surprised

  10. Looks like you hit the nail on the head for many of us, Clark. Love this side of you.

      smiles…. so, remind me to ask you about the different skies in Kansas Missouri Oklahoma … those flat, tornado prone places… I’m working on Chapter 3 and, you are my technical advisor, yes?
