So there I was, without a blog post. This is not an unusual situation for me, as regular readers know (if I still have any after all these lame posts). Earlier today I thought I remembered something I had written for Mohawk Valley Living magazine which they had not used. I could post that!
First I thought I had better check if I had posted about that subject before. Sometimes for Mohawk Valley Living I combine or modify blog posts. Um, yes, that is what I did this time. That idea down the drain.
Well, Steven and I had dinner at Sorrento’s in Ilion last night. Surely another shout-out to a local eatery would be acceptable. I searched my posts to see how many times I had written about Sorrento’s. Turns out to be a lot. That really shouldn’t matter. I give multiple shout-outs to lots of businesses.
Unfortunately my Writer’s Block or Blank for what have you continues. Could I overcome my resistance and write it anyways? Or should I give it up and write about not being able to write? I searched my posts for ones about not writing. Holy crap, what a lot of posts! How embarrassing! What kind of a writer am I, anyways? I clicked on one and read it.
You know, it really wasn’t too bad. And it got a few comments from other bloggers who liked it. I started thinking about how some bloggers re-post old posts when they don’t have a post for the day. Why couldn’t I do that?
I don’t know why, but the fact is I can’t. I can, however, type in almost 300 words of this nonsense, remarkably similar to other nonsensical posts I have published. I wonder if months from now I will look back at this post and think, “Why, that’s not too bad.” I have this sinking suspicion I will not.
