Monday always seems to need a brand spanking new post. And this is problematic for me. I don’t do interwebs on the weekend, not unless I’m expecting an email sending me the next chapter for a book someone is being cruel enough to only let me see bits and pieces at a time! But I digress. Monday morning has me drinking tons of coffee and trying to catch up with everyone and everything… while trying to come up with a post. Because I have to.
Even when I have nothing to say.
And my husband would crack up at the thought of me having nothing to say. Because apparently when you have a cold and spend all weekend in the sun building a 5 million piece swing set, and practicing Pat Benatar songs for the fake band… you WILL loose your voice, but not your sniffles. And just so you know, when one has a bad sneeze inducing cold, one should always put a lid on your adult beverage orrrrr your garage floor will get sticky and you will run out of said beverages.
But like I said, I really have nothing to write. Nada.
Which seems to be a problem lately for me. Because I don’t want to talk about writing or editing. Or of balance and schedules, or things that make you want to invest in Kleenex. And I absolutely detest writing about nothing.
I want to blame the editing and the excitement of ideas floating in my head eating up my blogging thoughts. I also want to blame my right ear that is so clogged it sounds like I have half of my head stuck in a sea shell. I’d also like to blame the teething, non napping, terrible two’s toddler who thinks mommy enjoys scrubbing milk off of the floor.
Yet blaming does not inspire. It’s just the way things are. The brain gets clogged and life gets busy. There are songs to sing and slides to build. And the point of writing is WRITING. Even if it’s not all fancy, even if it won’t win awards or get me a check in the mail. Even if it’s all been written before.
After all it’s just something I have to do.
(Unlike breathing, apparently colds don’t believe breathing is a necessary function for life. *cough cough sniffle sneeze*)
