Today I horrified myself by having a faint desire to write. (This was not the horrifying part.) Instead of getting out my poetry notebook or typing up the essay draft I wrote the other day, I went straight to this blog. Fuck. The blog is eating my creative energies. I will never write again.
Or maybe this blog is an appetizer. I burble a little onto the (virtual) page here and then I dive into the main meal, which is my writing projects. Except that I usually go from blogging to editorial work.
Maybe I should stop editing and write all the time. But then what would I blog about? Also I’ll have no electricity to power my computer if I stopped taking editorial work. Maybe I should just get up earlier in the morning.
What does blogging or reading blogs keep you from doing?
