Oh crap, crap, crappety crap, this week is taking forever! Yes, my Monday post was ridiculous and today is going to be Wuss-out Wednesday. I’m only surprised I managed to avoid Bad Attituesday.
As I worked at my job today (lots of time for thinking at my job), I thought about the play I am directing and the murder mystery I am organizing. I came up with a whole new plan for a scene in the play. Well, perhaps not a whole new plan, but a change in the blocking that I think will really work. I also spent some time thinking about how I used to think about my blog posts or my novel while I worked, and then I would spend my break time writing. I spent my break time today solving cryptogram puzzles. I love solving cryptogram puzzles.
So what’s this all about, I ask myself. How is it that I have stopped writing? Not entirely, of course, but I have slowed way down. I suppose it is because I am busy with not one but two plays (yes, one is just a murder mystery dinner theatre; THANK GOD it’s not another full stage production!). And I am on overtime. And I need my sleep. I am not a young woman any more (YES, it was a LONG time ago I was a young woman, what’s your point?).
Regarding those profitless questions I referred to on Monday, one might be Why do I do this? I don’t know how profitless it is, but I think the answer is clear. I cling to my daily blog, because it is one bit of writing that I do every day. As long as I am writing SOMETHING, there is still a chance that I will write more. Maybe even something good. Hope to see you all on Non-Sequitur Thursday.
