Overcoming Bloglessness



What is your worst quality?

Daily Prompt: Flawed



“What’s my worst quality?”


“What’s my worst quality?”

He looked up from his tablet, over the top of his readers to see if she was serious.

“C’mon, answer the question. What’s my worst quality?”

“What’s my worst quality?”

“You ask stupid questions. And you’re standing in front of the TV.”

“Oh, really? Well, it’s for the Daily Prompt.”

“Great. Can I play my game now?”

“Oh, by all means! Play your precious game! I’ll just be in the other room, entertaining myself. Alone, as usual.”

“Aw, crap. We gonna do this again?”

“No, no! It’s fine. Really!”


“You just let me know when you have time for me.”

“Yeah, well don’t wait under water.”

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.
