Chip off the ol' writer's block


I decided to start this blog as a means for me to transcribe my thoughts and to simply get some stuff off my chest. Sounds simple enough, right? So why haven’t I been doing that?

I try to rationalize my lack of input by stating that I’ve been “too tired” or “too busy” to do much. But the fact of the matter is… I’ve been lazy. Plain and simple.

I’ve been procrastinating and putting things off. For this blog, I’ve been “waiting for things to happen”. I’ve been waiting for an inspirational masterpiece to come to me. I’ve been hoping that some earth-shattering epic will flow from by brain to my fingertips and that all who read it will have their lives changed forever.

Pretty silly when you think about it.

The reality is that I’m not that type of creative person. I’m just some guy who simply writes what he feels. I’m not particularly poetic, nor do I really aspire to be. I just write stuff. Anything I write here is no more important than anything else here. It’s just my personal “journal” if you will.

I’ve noticed that it’s been well over a month since I’ve written anything here. That’s a pretty darn long time.

It’s time for me to come back. It’s time for me to start writing again. I realize that I’ve been neglecting myself. This blog isn’t really for anyone other than me. I hope those that take the time to read it may get a kick out of some of the stuff here. Hopefully there’s some entertainment value involved here as well. If my blogs help someone overcome some tedium in their day-to-day life, even if for only five minutes, then I’m glad. I’m happy I served as a distraction.

Anyway… let me get back on track here. I started writing again for my own sake. I came to the harsh realization that I have been neglecting myself in more ways than one. I’ve been neglecting my output here, I’ve been neglecting my health, I’ve been neglecting sleep, and I’ve even been neglecting work.

It’s time to take some steps to try and right the ship. This isn’t much, but it’s a start. Perhaps this will help me mentally and help me stay focused on other matters.

Honestly, I have been in a bit of a rut lately. I have been feeling run down, burnt out, lethargic, and genuinely melancholy. I’m not sure why…

I’ve absolutely had it with the Magazine section, the Advice lines, and the Administration of AdultFriendFinder, but that really shouldn’t be enough to really bring me down. My general lethargy has definitely affected my doings on AdultFriendFinder as well. I just don’t feel like doing much of anything. Instead of satisfaction, amusement, and interest, AdultFriendFinder has been more of a grueling experience that has left my eyeballs aching.

I’d like to get more into that, but not right now. That’s a topic I’ll be bringing up later.

There definitely is some connection between my recent frustration with AdultFriendFinder and my “Writer’s Block”. It’s no excuse, but it is a factor.

Since I feel that the best way for me to get into the swing of writing again is to simply start doing writing, I’m making a pledge to myself to be more active in this blog.

I hope everyone enjoys the experience.

i had a desire to mail corporate hq some icing sugar in glassine envelopes.. give them a member size headache..
it seems to be normaling out now..
my recent frustration drove me to reading blogs... and starting my own...
i am undergoing a period of absolute inactivity..i physically cannot do much.. walking next door and back causes a lot of physical pain.. i am looking forward to spring and being well again.. so rather than live on pain killers i stay still a lot... fortunately i am able to do that..i haven't worked for two months... the point is, the net is my only source of amusement now.. and maybe i take the glitches and breakdowns a little harder than i normally would..

do keep writing joe... i like what i see....
