I am wondering if today’s post will be Mid-week Middle-aged Musings or Wuss-out Wednesday. I guess I’ll start typing and see what happens (and by “typing,” of course I mean tapping one letter at a time with the stylus on my Tablet).
This is not the illustration I was looking for, but I think it is fitting for a post about not writing. Today was a particularly dreadful day in that respect. I could not convince myself to write any post cards or letters (I am running out of post cards in any case). I did not even make any notes in the TV Journal. That novel? I couldn’t even think about it!
Some would say that this is the moment to take myself firmly in hand and Just Write. What am I stalling for, these people will ask. Stop being so lazy, they will exhort. Put pen to paper and get on with it!
I think “Oh, stop dilly dallying” is kinder exhortation than “Stop being so lazy!” The question is how I will respond to any exhortations.
OK. I just typed in about five sentences after the word “exhortations” and backspaced them out. I guess trying to make a blog post has not cured my malaise. No matter. I am over 200 words. Perhaps after I hit Publish I will take up a pen and try again.
