Oh, just type anything.
That is what I finally said to myself after staring at the blank space under “Add New Post” on the wordpress page. It is Monday, so I know I can do a Middle-age Musing Monday or a Monday Mental Meanderings (still can’t decide between those two). However, whatever I do, I must actually type words into the computer.
It’s a funny thing about words and me. Sometimes they just fall out of my fingers, via pen or keyboard. Today at work (BEFORE work and while ON BREAK, in case you were concerned), I wrote almost two pages on my novel (YES, the novel I was supposed to finish in May, don’t judge). Got to the end of the scene, yes!
Couldn’t start another scene. I was just blank. And the blankness continues. All I can write about, and I realize this seems to happen to me frequently, is the fact that I can’t write. AAAUUUGH!!!
I could blame the weather: it became cold and rainy today. It brought on flashbacks to 2013. In 2013, I had signed up for a St. Baldrick’s Day fundraiser. I asked for donations to help cure children’s cancer, then I got my head shaved. That happened June 2. It was swelteringly hot all May. I cursed my hair, which I had not cut for almost two years. I got it shaved. Then the weather turned cold. It was a rainy, miserable June. Then Herkimer flooded on June 30.
You know, I could have expanded that last paragraph into a full blog post, and it would have looked as if I had actually written something. Silly me.
