Catching up — the nth installment!

The last entry on this blog was a post for the New Year.  And then nothing.

I haven’t written anything on the blog for 52 or so days.  Mind you, it’s not as if I’ve had nothing to write about: I’ve had gripes about commuting, stresses at work, an interesting phone call (that’s all I’m saying about it because that particular phone call must remain a secret!  Ha!) a trip back to Manila (yes, I finally went home for an awfully short 11-day vacation!), Korean food discoveries, a weird tummy illness and other health issues and several beauty freebies!  Yes, I’ve had a lot of things to write about.  But I’ve been too lazy to switch on the ‘puter and start tapping on the keyboard to write about them.

I could actually take myself off the hook and say, “Oh well, you know, real life gets in the way of blogging!” but that’s a major cop out.  I used to work a full time job in the Philippines but managed to write entries at night!  In hindsight, which we all know is 20-20, I probably should not have deleted any of my old blogs.  It might have been a good writing exercise to look at an old blog entry and rip it to pieces!  I am, after all, my worst critic!

I’m certainly glad I haven’t written a New Year’s resolutions list.  One of the things on that list would be to blog more — and we all know what a rip roaring success I would’ve been on that one!  Ha!

I’ve got loads to catch up on…so I guess I’d better get typing eh?

The Wall

I have hit the proverbial writing wall.

I’ve got so many things I want to write about, I’ve take so many pictures that I want to post and I’ve started writing the blog entries, but I can’t seem to finish anything!  In my head I know exactly what I want to write about, I know exactly what elements are part of the entry but as I sit in front of my PC and look at that blinking cursor, I freeze.  The words just won’t come!

I think the writing muses have gone away somewhere.  I’m thinking they’ve gone to somewhere warm and sunny.  I feel a bit put out that they didn’t invite me on their spring break!  I really wish they would come back.  I really want to start writing again.
