Post from a Melted Brain

Unofficial end of summer, my ass. We’ve had two warm, humid days, the second REALLY warm and humid. What little brain I had has melted. Luckily for me it is Lame Post Friday.

I did write some today. Not a lot. But some. I don’t think it was very good, but one can’t be brilliant 24/7 (I know, some of you are maintaining that YOU certainly can while the others are snarking that I probably can’t be brilliant 1/1. What sarcastic imaginary readers I have).

I didn’t do anything besides go to work and come home. Nothing exciting happened on either ride. And I could not make myself go for a run on this hot, humid day. My God, I am PATHETIC! I’ve got to get a grip on myself!

These things happen in the writing life. We try to write, we find we cannot think of anything to say. Some of us sensibly put the computer away and clean the house or play solitaire. Some of us press on, determined to make that blog post every day. And we all know which group I fall into.

I fear I do too many of these I Can’t Write a Post Today posts. Could it be time for me to stop trying to post every day? Maybe try for three times a week? No, I can’t do that. I’ll just try to write more better posts (YES, I mean “more better,” let it go). I’ll start tomorrow. Happy Friday, everyone.

  1. I love it because you talk to yourself in your blog posts in “aside” format. That’s exactly what I do and I thought it was weird and crazy. So thanks for making me feel better. Also…I too sometimes write shit and also accept that I write shit and then post it. It’s pretty cool.

    • Thanks for the comment. In fact we may both be weird and crazy, but there’s no point in assigning labels (at least, maybe there’s a point; perhaps I’ll consider the question next Lame Post Friday). I do enjoy just putting my silliness out there and it’s nice when other people enjoy it.
