OK, this is not quite the same thing as type-it-in-back-space-it-out. I just added a photo I took on a recent Mohawk Valley Adventure, typed in one sentence, and realized I could not go through with composing the entire post. At least I put a headline on it and saved what little I had as a draft, but what the hell, me?
This morning I wrote a little in the TV Journal, as I have been trying to do lately. A quick check showed me I have been steady since Dec. 26. I feel I must give myself a little credit for that at least.
Regarding my apparent inability to write before my shift starts and while on breaks at work, I said to myself, “Just write one sentence.” I repeated it in my head as I got ready and drove to work.
And I wrote one sentence! And then another one! They were not good sentences, unfortunately. Mostly I wrote about the fact that I was writing, expressing some surprise that I was doing so. Still, I wrote a couple of paragraphs.
I really do not know why I feel as if I am starting from several steps behind scratch. It is not as if I have gone any considerable length of time without writing at all, and I have not suffered any devastating mental or physical ailments.
In the meantime, I see I have surpassed 200 words with this nonsense. I shall close with the picture I opened the unfinished blog post with. Call it a Preview of Coming Attractions, if you like.
