What’s wrong with me?

Monday morning

This was my car yesterday, the day after Easter. By 3 p.m. all of this snow had melted. Today it is raining with the temperature to go into the 60’s F. We may get snow again before the end of the week. Life in Indiana.


It has been about a month since the last time I posted anything. It isn’t from lack of ideas. I’ve had a few ideas, jotted down some notes, started a few drafts, and let them never progress beyond that point. In some cases it is good that I stopped. For instance the idea for a blog post on belts died a worthy death. It is hard to believe that it even reached the draft stage. The truth is that I just don’t feel like writing.

Not only have I not written anything here, but also I never finished a couple letters that I started. Nor I haven’t written an email in months. I haven’t worked on my never-to-be-published novel. Most of the text messages I have sent were copies of Tweets that I liked.

Sometimes a felicitous phrase will come to my mind, but generally it stays there until I forget it. If I jot it down, it is not used. What’s wrong with me?

Perhaps you thought this post signals the breaking of the dry writing dam. Nope. I started this post in hopes of renew my love of writing, but it hasn’t happened. So consider this short post an explanation for my absence, and a promise that I’ll try to get back into the writing swing. But not right now. I don’t feel like writing. What’s wrong with me.

  1. oh gosh..it happens in Minnesota too…but it is Minnesota, we should have more snow than you I guess.. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hope the writing swing will return soon..sometimes all we need just a little break ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I hope that the desire to write returns soon as well. I normally look forward to writing, but lately it just doesn’t seem worth the effort. Maybe it is because winter seems to be holding on so long this year.

  2. You always say you bring the mundane, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Surely you could tell us what you’re looking forward to when spring actually arrives, or your favorite spring ever, or why on earth anyone would stay in cold states during winter. My bones would snap into shards. Or what about pork? People in Indiana love pork tenderloin, no? What’s your favorite weekly meal? New TV show? How do you feel about argyle socks?

    1. Well now, that’s quite a list of things to consider. I’ll strike one of them off right now. Argyle socks. I have nothing against them, but I prefer plain black, gray, or white. I am a man of simple tadtes. Except in my mate. She is far from simple. I’ll give serious consideration to the other topics.

  3. You’re not alone. Sometimes I feel like I’m pressured to come out with something, anything….. I’ve been doing this for almost 8 years.

    1. I hope to get back on my writing horse again soon. But right now it seems like there are many other things that I prefer to do. I’m glad that you are still writing, because I enjoy your blog.
