I admit I have been suffering from blank page syndrome when it comes to this blog. My last post was eight days ago. I have been working on the next two installments of the Actress and the Warlock but the motivation has been sorely lacking.
This past week, every time I sat down to write a post, it ended up with me on a soapbox, screaming at the top of my lungs at people who can’t think. The topics varied from political issues, to social issues, to writing issues, the world media, and back. The problem is, I promised myself that I would not, repeat, would not use this site for that purpose. I believe in the right of free speech. However, as writers, I also believe that we must be aware of our audience and use that rarest of commodities, Common Sense, when commenting on sensitive issues. Some would say I’m afraid to speak my mind. To them I say, “Any time, anywhere…except this blog.”
SO, I apologize for not posting anything of real interest this week. Next week will be better. I’m already feeling more productive.
As a wise man once said:
Better to say nothing, and be thought a fool,
Than to open ones mouth and remove all doubt!
Another wise man, close to me, once said:
Someday your mouth will get you into trouble!
Thanks, Dad. Maybe I have learned something useful after all. 🙂
