My colleagues gave me homework today. Humph. What did they give me for homework, and why, you may ask, did they give it to me when I am the one who should be dishing it out?
Well, in case you haven’t noticed, it’s been three months and six days since my last blog. I was on a roll for a very long time of writing a blog every single day. I always knew if I ever skipped a day, I would fall down the slippery slope of non commitment, and that, my friends, is exactly what happened. A day, here, a day, there, and before I knew it, I wasn’t writing at all.
Thanks to those dear homework assigners, I am climbing back up on the proverbial horse and will start writing again. It’s the least I can do.
I could tell you that I didn’t write because it’s been hot. That would be the truth as it has been hot as Hades in Alabama this summer–so hot I couldn’t even stand to go geocaching. However, I do have air conditioning.
I could tell you that I didn’t write because I’ve been off. That would be the truth, too. I will tell you that I have discovered that long stretches of being off for me does not cause me to be more productive–it has quite the opposite effect. With all that time looming before me, I find that I can procrastinate till the cows come home and then some.
I could tell you that I didn’t write because my muse left me, but I’m pretty sure I don’t have one. I’m just a pound it out at the keyboard kinda gal.
I could tell you that I didn’t write because the Music of the Spheres quit playing, but that would just be a lie since I’ve never heard them play.
I could tell you that I didn’t write because someone told me that my writing sucked, but that’s not true because apparently some of you actually like to read it.
What I can tell you is that I started reading advice like don’t blog more that once a week, stick to one topic, have a set schedule, always include a photo to make it more interesting . . .
I started over thinking the whole deal.
Oh, and I got lazy.
Dear Readers, with that I have fulfilled my homework assignment for tonight, and I plan to pound the keyboard regularly once again.
