Um… hello! I’m not sure if you remember me, but I used to write this here blog thingy… The truth is that I am the worst blogger in the world. I’m right up there with this guy:
The truth is that I’ve been sucked into something called Laziness. Hey, lets call a spade a spade, right? In the intermittent time between blogging, not blogging, job finishing, job hunting, parenting, and writing, I’ve been asking myself this main essential question:
I’m sure that I’m not the first person to ask this question, Micky Mouse Clubhouse aside. In fact, I highly doubt if I’ve even made it into the top 2 million. I did come up with a few ideas for why I WASN’T blogging, though.
Number 1. Gosh, I just don’t have any new creative writing to post! My muse is effectively comatose…
There is some truth to this, but it isn’t completely true. In fact, at the very end of May, I started writing several outlines and ideas for my Camp NaNoWriMo project, (of which I currently have 28,433 out of 50,000 words written) . Muse took a nap for a week or two, tops.
Number 2. Doing a new blog everyday (Or once a week) is tough! What on earth am I going to write? Do I have anything worth posting? No one is going to read this stuff! (Enter self-doubt, stage left)
Wow, nothing kills a good writing streak faster than worrying about what other people are going to think about it. This sneaky little worm worked his way into my blog and said “Neener, neener, neener! You couldn’t blog your way out of a cardboard box!” Sad, but true… Leading me to reason number 3.
Number 3. Lack of Motivation. I haz it.
This is the part where I roll over and let the Gluttonous Beast of Motivational Despondency win. This is an example of some of his work:
Okay, so to recap: I wasn’t blogging because I was uninspired, intimidated, and unmotivated. Phew! Glad I got that off of my chest!
So, why do I want to do this blog?
Answer: If I don’t do this blog, the Gluttonous Beast of Motivational Despondency will get me, and I’ll melt into a puddle… I don’t want to melt into a puddle.
Huh… And now, for some Random Star Wars Humor:
When your cable company refuses to deliver service to Tatooine, you get bored.
When you get bored, you clean the droids.
When you clean the droids, you find a hologram that sends you off on an adventure with an old desert hermit.
When you go on adventures with an old desert hermit, you become a Jedi.
When you become a Jedi, you learn that your father is Darth Vader.
When you learn your father is Darth Vader, you realize that you have a connection with Jar Jar Binks.
Don’t have a connection with Jar Jar Binks. Get rid of Cable. Switch to DirecTV
Guess I had something afterall. Not quite sure what it IS yet, but something is better than nothing!
Now that I have written a post about nothing, Here is a cute picture of a cute baby writting my next cute blog!
