Can my readers bear yet another post about How I Can’t Write a Post Today. I can’t write ANYTHING today! And it has been that way for a very long time.
OK, that is an exaggeration. I can write something. Here I am, typing in nonsense I intend to pass off as a blog post. Sunday I wrote two articles to submit to Mohawk Valley Living magazine. I wonder if they were any good. I can’t worry about that now. Where was I? Nowhere, it seems.
Now I am sitting here staring at the word “nowhere.” My computer is not underlining it, but it looks wrong. Like it really says “now here.” These are the things that keep me from moving on to the next paragraph.
The next project I am dithering about is the murder mystery for Morning Star Methodist Church in Ilion, NY, planned for Saturday, April 28. I think I have a situation, and the names of some of the characters. I have a victim but not yet a murderer. This is not uncommon. Sometimes I write the whole script before I decide whodunnit. You can do that with a ten-page script. I wouldn’t try it with a 300-page novel. No, I have not written a 300-page novel, but I have written 300 pages on a novel. At least a couple of times.
And now I have written a 200 word blog post. It looks kind of sad without any pictures of monsters. Maybe I could include just one.
There you go: a monster and a beautiful girl. What’s not to like? Oh, I’m sure somebody could find something. Once again, I’ll try for a better blog post tomorrow.
