My brain has been functioning on and off all day, mostly off. I hurried home from work and managed to accomplish the tasks I had set for myself EXCEPT make my blog post before my rehearsal for Strike Story, the reader’s theatre production in Little Falls later this month (is that a run-on sentence? My brain is back in off mode, naturally). I just about had time to make a not very good post, but my brain clicked off big time. It barely clicked back on for rehearsal, but I managed to stumble through that.
Of course, the operative thing to do would have been to write my blog post earlier, while on breaks at work. I was totally going to! I even had something to write about. When I started to compose it in my head while working (I have the sort of job where you can do that), I found I didn’t really know enough about what I wanted to write about, so I would have to wait till I got home and got on the computer. I just could not manage to write about anything else. Some will say this is mere laziness or perhaps that I am not really a writer after all. Dammit, I know I’m not a real writer! I’m lazy, too, I admit it. The fact is, I am down, and I always have a hard time doing anything when I am feeling blue.
In fact, I’m having a hard time typing this now. However, one thing I have learned is, one must persevere. One thing I must learn is how to write when I feel blue. Another good thing might be to learn how to make a blog post with my brain in off mode. Wait a minute, I think that is what I just did. How appropriate for a Tired Tuesday.
