It’s The Computer’s Fault


I can’t be sure, but I think I heard it snickering. Obviously, my laptop can’t mock or laugh. It isn’t alive, or sentient, but a soulless machine; a dull collection of boring bits and pieces.


I apologize to those of you who love your computer and feel that you share a special relationship with it, or with him, or her.

It’s just that I’ve sitting for 20 minutes trying to think of something to blog about. Usually I’m inspired. Most mornings I have something that I’m excited to write. But not today.

(That isn’t me, but its close, really very close.)

I’ve even tried reviewing my common themes, which are:

  1. The cat
  2. Routine daily life
  3. Marriage stuff
  4. Friendship/Relationships
  5. The house

And other stimulating topics.

But this morning I find myself with writer’s block, a blank mind, a sleepy outlook. I don’t have anything to say. Cant find the words. I’m bereft of thought. As far as writing is concerned, I am without speech.

So here are a few closing thoughts about my writing:

  1. Award winning writing is extremely hard to do.
  2. I know not every thing I write is award winning stuff.
  3. Actually, nothing I’ve ever written has gotten an award.
  4. How come nobody thinks my writing should get an award?
  5. What’s wrong with those people?


I hope things go better for you today than they seem to be going for me.

Inspiration and motivation will return, perhaps soon, maybe tomorrow. Maybe I just need a cup of coffee. Or some waffles. Sure, that’s it.

On that happy note, have a good and blessed Saturday.
