Pathetic Excuse for Not Blogging #7,264,892

I'm always thinking of things to blog about, but when I get to my computer I have a strange unwillingness to sit down and type out my thoughts. I suppose it's because I've already fleshed out the main point of my thought, so I don't want to go over it again. Maybe I ought to carry around a tape recorder and talk into it when I have an Idea. Granted I would appear to be some nerdy freak, but not like I care.

Or maybe I should just commit myself to sitting down in front of the computer for a few minutes every day, and writing my thoughts down, if I have any worth sharing. If something develops, I can share the thought as it comes. Like I'm doing now. You think I'm editing this? Nope, straight off the top of my head.

I know what you mean. The thoughts have become OLD once you've thought about them, so it's hard to address them again. Try disagreeing with yourself. Force yourself to disagree with yourself -- if only as an exercise. You can always go back and say you were wrong to disagree with yourself and you were right in the first place, but seeing your own words under attack gives you a way to clear the mental debris and start fresh -- as it were.

Just an idea....

If it works, let me know, and I'll send you a bill!
