This has not been a good week for me personally.
And I know when I write a sentence like that I get a lot of well-wishers responding with positive affirmations. And I appreciate that, really I do. But...well, my personal life is personal and (at least regarding the negative stuff) I try to keep it out of the blog.
Well, except for venting about Paraguay. But that's more like a public service announcement.
ANYway...the problem is, when things are going poorly I tend not to write very much. My creative energy is at a low ebb. The impetus to write (or even look up if I'm using the word "impetus" correctly) is absent. I can knock out little blurbs like this, little "woe-is-me" type stuffs, but that's not what people are stopping by to read. And I know that, and I apologize.
Mainly, I have a bunch of ideas in my head and no one to talk to about them. I start writing about one and something (in my real life) distracts me and then I'm on to the next idea and the last post is left unfinished and less than coherent. I've got something like three or five of those sitting on the ol' "draft" board here, and it's irritating as hell. And depressing. Which puts me into an even deeper funk.
It hasn't been a good week. I'm going to take a nap now and see if I feel a little revitalized after.
