A week ago, I wrote a post titled Writing without writing, which is possible to do, but is it possible to blog without blogging? I’ll answer that question. The first rule of blogging is—you have to blog! You have to write something. Words, if possible.
If you’re keeping track, (humor me) you know I’m not doing so well at blogging. We’re two weeks into the month and I’m three posts behind. My mind is blank—well, no, it’s not blank, but nothing on my mind right now is a topic worthy of blogging about. Um … like now. (That was ninety-seven words about nothing, if you want to keep track.)
Hey, here’s an idea—I’ll blame it on Leap Year. Yeah, that’s it. The extra day in February threw the earth off its axis … or something. Threw me off my axis, maybe. That explains my recent equilibrium problem quite nicely. It’s hard to think straight when you’re staggering around.
Oh ho! Then we had that time change thing, doncha know. I was rudely flung forward an hour into the future. Seems that could mess with your brain, don’t you think? I mean, what could have happened in that hour I missed? I’ll never know. That question will haunt me for the rest of my life.
(Add 107 more useless words on your abacus.)
Do I need mention the weather? Weird, aint’ it? We only toyed with winter here, and now we’ve flung open the door to spring. When the natural progression gets disrupted, I wander off track, whistling aimlessly. Only I’m not, because I can’t seem to pucker like I used to.
So, yeah. I was supposed to be cleaning while I wrote without writing, but sadly, I haven’t accomplished much on that front. I did write a couple scenes for the new novel, but given my state of being, they’re probably nonsense. Maybe I could use them in Words With Friends.
May your days be balanced and productive, friends.
(Total worthless words: 322 … and now you know how to blog without saying anything.)

Linda, I’m so glad I saw this post. I think it’s okay to not blog until you have something you really want to talk about and share. I’d rather read one really good blog from someone whenever the mood strikes them…. than anything else.
Ha! In other words, Jess, you would have preferred I not write this post? 😉
From you, I don’t mind. Especially as you seem to worried that you’re letting us followers down. Not at all. Life happens and sometimes you have to more experiences to have something to write about.
I love your new look! Very polished. Goes well with the new cover.
I just gave you a 7 X 7 Lucky Meme award on my blog. http://darlenefoster.wordpress.com/2012/03/23/lucky-number-7/
Thank you, Darlene. I’m still messing with the themes because of other changes at WP, so you may see something different next time. And I’ll stop by and see what the Lucky 7 is all about. 🙂
