Overcoming Bloglessness

Daily Prompt: S/he Said


Daily Prompt: S/he Said

Pause whatever you’re doing, and ask the person nearest you what they’re thinking about (call someone if you have to). Write a post based on it.

He’s still asleep.  I should go in there right now, wake him up and ask him what he’s thinking about.  His answer would most likely be an extra long, artfully delivered, deeply resonant fart.   I think I’ll let him sleep.

A few minutes later…

He’s out of bed, turning up the heat.  I ask him, “What are you thinking about?”

“I’m thinking about taking my pills,” he says with a puzzled, what a weird question first thing in the morning look on his face.   I see what he’s thinking.  He’s thinking,  What did I do?  What am I supposed to be thinking about? Is this a set-up? Are we going to have drama today? 

“It’s the Daily Prompt”, I explain.

Ahh, now he understands.   Greatly relieved, he’s back to thinking about taking his pills.  He’s tooting his way into the kitchen.

For many years I have suffered from debilitating bloglessness, only writing in my head, while everyone else posted and shared with ease. Previous attempts at recovery have failed, my secret journals edited to death, pages torn out, crumpled and trashed. I will not succumb to this embarassing condition. I will continue to struggle against the rampant backspacing and endless blank staring. I refuse to relapse into the void that is bloglessness. I can do it. I am doing it. I am Overcoming Bloglessness.

  1. For a second I thought my wife had taken over your blog. 🙂
