Sorry for the delay in getting anything out. I’ve been working for the past week on one big Arsenal-themed blog post that I just couldn’t bring together. So I shelved it. I started on the next “My Favorite Episodes” piece and got a third of the way in before I realized that I didn’t want to finish it. So I shelved that. So I’m stuck with nothing new for 8 days.
Honestly, how the hell does anyone do this for a living? I mean, I get that if you write for a blog with a specific theme – sports, movies, gossip, technology – your topics are, in a sense, easier to choose. You might just respond to the latest news or releases. Or you can wax poetically about some grander topic that brings various threads together – say fantasy football versus real-life or celebrity gossip and box office. Or maybe you write about your hometown or your predilection for cat-themed tea parties.
(For the record, no, I didn’t know that cat-themed tea parties were a thing. But lo and behold if Google cannot come up with an image of it).
But since this is a blog of varied interests, it’s not as easy to come up with something.
That’s part of the difficulty with writing that I’ve had for much of my life. I enjoy doing it. At times I feel compelled to do it. Other times I couldn’t care one bit whether or not I put something down.
So I apologize for not putting something out sooner. I think I’ll take a day or two (who am I kidding? Don’t expect anything until Monday!) and then get some ideas down that I feel I can flesh out.
