Hot Mess, table for 1

I’ve been having some serious writers block lately. Not to toot my own horn, but I’ve got tons and tons of blog posts, stories and just general ideas floating around my noggin and I can’t translate them to paper. I busy myself with unnecessary things and at the end of the day I get super annoyed that I haven’t accomplished all the things I wanted to do.  Then at 11pm I get this flash of inspiration but am too exhausted to complete anything. Then I end up staying awake until 1am because my brain is going 100 miles per hour. It’s becoming a vicious cycle and I’m getting more and more annoyed with me. So what’s the solution? What’s the best way to combat this? Should I promise myself that I should write something everyday even if it’s bad and terrible?

 

My problem with that is, I get stuck in the notion of having everything be perfect before I start writing. Well, if I’m going to write daily I should have a folder in my documents for daily writings. What should I title the post? Should I have a folder within the folder? Gee, my photos haven’t been alphabetized in months! This is outrageous, how can I get any work done in a word document if my photos folder looks that bad. What if I die tragically tomorrow, who will know where I hid my porn so my mother won’t look for it? Well, if both HHP and I die, I need someone else on the outside to clear my internet history and dispose of my sex toys. But, who can I trust? A local friend? My BFF who lives 5 states away? Oh, what about the dogs? And their porn history? No one should have to see the weird kind of porn my dogs are into….

 

Where was I going with this? Oh look, an adorable skunk!

    Friend, you’re suffering from what I often struggle with on my blog: Paralysis by inaction. There’s so much to do that you feel overwhelmed & end up doing nothing. I’m as guilty of this as anyone.

    The little success I’ve had against it is documenting everything I want to do & doing something – anything – on the list. Just get started.

    And clearing browser caches is what friends are for. But don’t worry about mine: I’ve enabled Private Browsing mode. I leave no trace.
