So I went back to work today. I did not bring a puzzle book or anything to read. I brought a notebook and pen, because I was going to write. I would not be forced to have a Tired Tuesday or Bad Attituesday. I was going to write a real post!
First I wrote a to-do list for the week. I was having one of those days when I thought that getting my act together was an actual possibility. I suppose it is really under the heading Keep Dreaming. Then again, if we don’t go for these things, we’ll never know how much we can accomplish. I’ll keep you posted on how I do with it.
After finishing the list, I turned a page or two back and wrote two more lines on the Banana Play. I had thought I might finish that play on my week off (see above paragraph about having my act together and Keep Dreaming). I have also been thinking, “Oh, nobody really expects me to finish that damn play. It isn’t very good anyways. I should start a new novel instead and finish that instead.” Yet I managed to write a little.
Still not feeling up to a blog post, I found a blank page and began a letter to someone I have not written to in a while. I thought this was a good thing to do because, for one reason, it is good to send somebody a letter. For another reason, I told her about some of the Mohawk Valley adventures I’ve had recently. I thought I might get inspired to write a blog post or two. Unfortunately, my break was not that long.
Back at work, I was thinking in a vague sort of way about my Banana Play when I had some GREAT ideas about what could come next. Almost a whole new direction for the plot and a couple of the characters. This was cool. I couldn’t wait to get back to my notebook!
Bottom line is, I do not feel too bad about not writing a blog post earlier today. One might think I could just write one now, but it seems beyond me. I don’t know why that is. Some days I sit at the keyboard and compose a perfectly acceptable post about an area event, attraction or business. Some days not so much. What, I ask, are you going to do? Well, I hope you are going to still read my blog tomorrow. What I’m going to do is publish this post and see if I can’t write a few more lines on the Banana Play.
