Here I sit, on Tired Tuesday, feeling, you know. Additionally, I fear I am coming down with the same bug which has ailed my husband for two days. Or my allergies are acting up again. Or I am just a common or garden dizzy broad (I KNOW which one you think it is) (you know who you are). Nevertheless, a blog post must be made. Because I say it does, dammit!
One of my favorite things to do to procrastinate writing my blog post is to read other blogs, many of which handily pop up as soon as I log in to WordPress. Today I read “Return of the Modern Philosopher” and was encouraged. This fellow is doing a lot and still progressing on a screenplay! Additionally, two of the things he does are write a blog and write for a TV show. Two WRITING things.
What this means for me is, I have to stop coasting. I can’t just say, “Well, at least I am making my blog post. That’s writing” or “I worked on a letter to a friend” or “wrote in the TV Journal.” I stand by my rule that All Writing Counts. However, it is clear that no matter what, I can do MORE writing.
In fact, I did try to start a new novel yesterday. I wrote a few more notes on it today, before my dizziness drove me away from the notebook. Well, I won’t do that again. I will just learn how to write when I don’t feel well. I suppose a few of you are thinking that it is too bad I did not start by making this a better blog post. Or is that just my inner critic? No matter. This is what I typed, this is what I’m posting.
But after I post this, I shall seek out a pen and paper (my favored medium of composition) and see what I can do.
