The alternate title of this post is Drafts: Where my blogs go to die.
I’m going to make this short and sweet. Otherwise I’ll never post it. It’s unlikely I’ll even edit it for fear of never finishing.
I need a muse. Or something. Some kind of inspirational help from somewhere. Angels, where are you?
My draft folder, on just this blog site alone, contains more items than I have actual posted blogs. Many times more.
Here’s the whiny part:
It’s not fair. The culprit is some evil combination of procrastination, ADHD and low self-esteem. The Bermuda Triangle of the unemployed. Hmm…that actually sounds like the force that motivates people to go to law school. Must explore this idea in a future [draft] blog.
I’m thinking this should be a quantum physics blog because it is pure potentiality. Maybe if I had an objective observer one of these waves of thought would snap into actual words on a page.
As a writer I am not entirely without talent, this is just ridiculous.
My goal for this week is to finish even one of the mountain of draft posts in the folder.
And to be fair to my inner author, this malaise is not limited to writing. A friend just told me that she has been editing for 6 hours straight already today. To which I replied, “I put in a load of laundry and I’m thinking about recycling a box.” Each according to his abilities I guess.
That’s the rant, now I’m going to recycle the box, get my laundry out of the dryer and finish a draft blog! What choice do I really have? I’ve already been to law school.
