I actually started writing a blog post while on break at work today. It was a Running Commentary about my run on Sunday. I had written almost half a page and hadn’t even gotten on the road yet when break ended. While I worked, I thought of a way better lead than what I had. Cool beans, I thought. I’m editing and everything, just like a real writer! At the next break, I skipped a line and started to write the new lead.
No, wait, that wasn’t what I had thought. No, this is a better way to say it. No, don’t put it that way….
So I spent the rest of the break solving cryptogram puzzles I cut out of the Telegram.
On the other hand, it is Middle-aged Musing Monday or perhaps Mental Meanderings Monday, in other words, a day I sometimes let myself off the hook. It occurs to me that I am spending entirely too much time off the hook lately, but I am not sure how to fix the problem. I keep trying to jump back on the hook and missing. What an awkward metaphor, anyway, “on the hook.” What am I, a pirate?
I know, I know: the answer first, last and always is to just keep writing. After I publish this nonsense, I shall work on another project. Then I might even take another crack at that Running Commentary.
Hey, I just remembered something else. This is a three day week for me, so although it is Monday, it is kind of like Wednesday, because, you know, I only have two more days of work. Wuss-out Wednesday! Oh, I know, that doesn’t make it any better. Just wait till tomorrow, when it’ll be Tuesday and Wednesday AND Thursday! Sometimes I just have to laugh at myself.
