Against The Wall

It’s been a while since I have let myself get into the position of not having a post ready to go. I had a couple of ideas and then when I started to work on them I couldn’t get them to work on paper as well as they did in my head. My problem is that I don’t just get rid of them but I keep them floating around somewhere, which is where some of the “Throw-It-Back-Thursday” stuff comes from. Anyway, as you have seen, if you’ve been around here for a while, there are nights I just don’t have anything to say, and I can take a hundred words to say it.

The blank I keep drawing.

    • I know it happens to all of us. But if I don’t make a point of keeping the commitment to at least one post a day then I just drop out of blogging for too long and then I have to apologize to everybody and promise to try to do better, blah-blah-blah.

        • Sadly, yes. I am dreadfully inconsistent with my writing. If you go for a stroll through my archives you will see whole stretches of weeks, months and even years. That was the purpose of my making the promise back in August https://blog.herbthiel.com/2019/08/09/going-streaking/ to post every single day, even if it was just a sentence or two. Getting new readers like yourself is encouraging, as well.

          • Don’t ever quit. It’s not right. If anyone should feel that way, it’s me.
            Blogging streaks happen, but if you stop, I’ll die.
            Posting everyday is a HUGE commitment! My goal is to post twice a week, but with COVID-19, I have been able to post four times a week now.
            Every blogger is different, and special in their own way.

          • Than you so much for your encouragement, I really appreciate it. If you follow the progression of it you will see that I have not kept the commitment completely but I have gotten up and dusted myself off and started all over again.
