It has been a week since I posted here, but I have been writing. I just haven't managed to get anything down on paper. The automatic download from the thoughts in my head to my computer screen has not been working. The writing ideas float in and out of my head constantly. I write myself to sleep at night, reworking sentences in my head. When I read the paper, I'm looking for stimulating material to make a story. When I attend an activity with my friends I think about how to make attending the craft show an interesting narrative. So why don't I have anything to post?
This past week I've only "written" in my head and nothing has been very interesting. Two or three sentences about spring gardening and another few on signs of spring in Hermiston. The narrative about buying kettle corn at the craft show put me right to sleep. Even if I had that interface that directly connected my brain to my computer, there wouldn't be anything worth reading.
What exactly are the signs of spring in Hermiston, you ask?
- The buckets holding bunches of daffodils have shown up in the aisle by the deli at Safeway, a sure sign that spring is near.
- We don't have a Cherry Blossom Festival in Hermiston, but the ten trees that encircle RiteAid are in full cotton candy colored bloom.
I've been surfing a lot of blogs and I can't even find inspiration to leave comments. What do you do to keep the words flowing? Is it possible that I've used up everything worth saying? There must be a limit to the number of times I can write about cleaning out my closets. Hopefully by tomorrow I'll come up with a better topic or I'll be sharing more closet details.
