stuck.

19 01 2011

i’m assuming that writer’s block and erectile dysfunction are probably pretty similar conditions. it’s been a week, and somehow i just can’t seem to get it up. i keep trying, but every day i don’t write, things get more complicated. i don’t think i need to burn this blog to the ground and run or anything… in fact, i actually have a really good post waiting in the wings for something very special to show up in the mail (just you wait!). but at this very exact moment, i’m feeling a little adrift… so i apologize for the delay. i’m not giving up or jumping ship.  i’m just a little overtired, and cranky, and too stupid to think of anything good to say. anyone out there floating in the universe have any big ideas?

every writer i know, regardless of talent, fame, etc, says that the best thing to do is to commit to writing SOMETHING every day. even if it’s just a list of things you think you want to write about later. i started a private blog to write about some stuff that was blocking me up and it’s helped a lot. i don’t write things that get published lately, but i get some writing done more often than i used to, and it definitely makes me feel better.

you’re totally right. thank you for the kick in the pants. writing in many ways is the love of my life, and i need to learn to make more time for it. wordpress is running this challenge called “the daily post” where people commit to writing a post a day on their blog until the end of the year. i think that would be good for me. i need to remember that it doesn’t always have to be epic, just SOMETHING. if you were here right now, i’d be singing THIS to you (just the inspiration part, i’m not turning into a creepy stalker. probably.). so thanks 🙂
