I’ve Got Nothing

I’m still having trouble writing even a simple, boring post(like the majority of posts here). I’m sure I have things to say about life, politics, the Oscars, etc I just can’t seem to get motivated to type them up in a post. I could just write about my life, but that is really boring. Here is a synopsis of my typical day:

6:30am – 8:30am Wake daughter up, make her lunch, read the newspaper, drink coffee, get ready for work.

8:30-9am – drive to work

9-5 – work, except Wednesday when I work 1-9

5-5:30 drive home

5:30-7:30 – watch TV, possibly cook dinner if anyone else is going to be home to eat it.

7:30-10 – Watch TV, possible alone.

10-6:30 – sleep, or at least try.

Not much inspiration for writing there. I should probably work on having a more interesting life.

As far as writing goes, I need to use the voice recorder on my phone or Siri to take notes while I am driving and thoughts that would make a good post pop in my head. I have a lot of mediocre blog posts that go in and out of my head when I am not able to write them down.



I Have No Words


I’ve written and trashed two different posts this morning for various reasons. I’m having trouble concentrating on reading a book and I’m having trouble writing a coherent post. I guess it’s time to watch more TV.  Writing might come back some day. In the interim, please enjoy this picture of me walking a Cheetah.




Tater’s Writer’s Block Tuesday

I decided that I needed to write something this morning. I had a thought about what I wanted to write. I sat down with coffee and the laptop and got started. I typed a sentence. I deleted the sentence and typed another. I deleted that one and typed two this time. I've now deleted those two and instead started writing about deleting the previous sentences. I can't seem to get more than a sentence or two into a topic before I get stuck. Normal people would probably just put the laptop away, but I've never been normal. Here are some things I could write about if I could write more than a sentence:

The Post-Vacation Blues - I'm still in the middle of the post-vacation blues. I'm counting down to retirement(8 years) when the vacation will never end. I think it's harder after an event you've been anticipating(high school reunion) and also after visiting family(why did we choose to love so far away). I guess I will get over it soon. If not, maybe I can win the lottery and be on a permanent vacation.

Politics - The Today Show is playing while I'm writing this. There is plenty I could write about in the news, but I'm not ready to go there. Everyone knows how I feel about President Trump(I throw up in my mouth a little every time I write that) and he's doing nothing to change my mind.

Unfriended - Speaking of my thoughts on the president. I was very vocal during both the primaries and the general election on my feelings on Trump. I noticed during this time that a couple of people were no longer my friend on Facebook. I guess they were either tired of reading about politics in general or didn't like my opinions. It's not the first time I've lost Facebook friends. I keep discovering that people who used to be my friends are no longer my friends(usually when they comment on a post I'm following) and I'm never really sure when or why this happened. I think a few unfriended me because I'm not "Christian" enough(meaning I don't blindly follow the political opinions of a church), some did it over politics and a few just don't really like me. Their loss.

Random Thought While Trying to Sleep Last Night - I don't think it would be possible to time travel without messing up time. Even if you went back as yourself in the past there is no way you could replicate everything and any little deviation could have a big impact on current time.

That's a lot of writing for someone claiming to have writer's block.
