A paltry update on nothing at all.

What has happened to me?

I used to consider myself to be somewhat prolific. I used to think I had a voice, and while it didn't always say something meaningful or useful, it usually said something.

So why have I completely faltered? Falter? No, that's not the right word. To falter would imply I have made a mistake and recognize a clear path back to where I was. That is certainly not me in this case.

Probably more accurate, I have stagnated. All my ideas and all my thoughts have been blocked up and left to rot. Indeed, it seems my pool of ideas has become more of a cesspool of frustration and wasted time.

I had gotten the idea to start working on drafts for my posts, and for a little while I felt like I was really on to something. But even that has reached this murky and impenetrable quagmire of a writer's block.

Whats my point here? I'm frustrated. I'm stuck. But I'm not giving up. I'm going to find a way through this.

So, if you happen to be one of the few folks who actually keep track of my exploits here, keep keeping track. I promise, there will be something soon.

Please, let there be something soon....


  1. I think we can blame our lack of profundity on Facebook. It is way to easy to do a short update and call it good.

  2. I agree...Facebook has taken over my thoughts...not much to update on the blog when I put little things out during the day on Facebook....I will keep checking your blog, if you keep checking mine :)

  3. I can completely and utterly and totally relate. But, I decided to give myself a big ol' kick in the butt and commit to doing National Blog Posting Month (aka Nablopomo) where you kind of make a public pledge to do one posting a day for one month. For me, it's changed the focus from completely overthinking it to "OK, just crank something out." So cranking I have been. And I can feel the ol' writing gears starting to work again.

    Don't worry about something being perfect. You have a very supportive group of readers. But, if you love to write, just write for cryin' out loud. I, for one, would love to read it.


You went to all the trouble to get yourself here, you might as well say something about it.
