I know a really, really good writer who writes one blog a week for CNN. ( You can find him on the CNN home page, I'm sure). I receive it as a link from the author, Bob Greene.) He is an excellent columnist and author, and he can limit himself to writing once a week. What is the matter with his mother who can't get three steps away from her desktop?
It is a terrible interruption for me to have to go to the bathroom. I have half- lost interest in eating lunch. The sun shines bright in my living room, but I stay in the north-facing sitting room until I have finally had my say for the day. My bedroom is aglow with sunshine and. once upon a time, I would take a short nap there, or just have an hour lie down. If I rest depends on finishing my blog.
And I can't start to write until I have read Facebook from top to bottom, news feed and live feed both. They suggest more blog ideas. And so it goes.
So I say to myself: "Hush your mouth, once in a while. You can't be interesting every day. Let your ideas simmer for awhile, they may be richer, like good chicken soup."
Check in again tomorrow. I have no idea if I can quit cold turkey.
