These are the types of posts I hate. Oh, it’s partly self-pity and complaining, partly a place-holder, partly just crap because I have nothing else to post.
Well, it’s not that I don’t have anything else to post, actually, it’s that I can’t seen to get my ideas fully formed. I have a couple of drafts but they aren’t fully formed. More like ideas rather than posts in need of editing. And not even fully formed ideas.
But I have to write. Instead of sitting here in front of the computer and do nothing, I should be writing. Well, typing, but you get the idea.
Creativity in this medium is a process, and at times I struggle. Right now I shouldn’t be struggling. I could post about how exciting it was to watch the Super Bowl with my kids as our Seattle Seahawks won. But I don’t feel I would be contributing anything original. I could write about how my 3 year old is enjoying pre-school, but that is interesting only to me as his parent.
I have several music oriented posts I’d like to write up. I posted a bit about my recent trip to Boston and seeing the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, but I still have something to say about the band and what the music means to me. I just can’t seem to get it out.
So what am I doing? I have to post. Inertia. Forward movement. The more I don’t blog, the easier it is to keep not blogging (grammar be damned).
