So here’s my writer’s block experience of the moment. I worked on a few post ideas the last couple weeks but none passed the “Gerald” test. When Gerald tells me something is kind of boring, I’m positive it’s a big FAIL. One story was me reminiscing about my Grandpa and his love of curbs as an old man driver. I didn’t even get a grin from my Gerald so I knew it must’ve been pretty bad. I may still work on it, but for now, I parked it on the shelf.
The other post I worked on was sort of “Part 2” to last year’s nerdy hooker post. We had another fun dress up week at work several weeks ago and I was attempting to recapture the same magic as last year. I believe the problem was that THIS year, I was more prepared. I remembered what every day’s theme was and dressed accordingly. Unfortunately, there were no funny stories to tell from the week. No one mistook me for a nerdy 80’s hooker. I remembered to wear purple on Purple Day, and green on Green Day. I remembered my crazy socks on… Crazy Socks Day. BOR-ING. I mean, I have to apologize to my readers. I know you expect so much less from me. I’m sure you have come to expect some ridiculous story resulting from my forgetfulness or my typical fashion fails. So that post idea was out the window, or at least another on the shelf.
My parents came to visit this past weekend and I thought about describing the coffee maker to-do, or maybe how my parents ended up with Gerald’s Reef flip-flops at their house, a good four hours away. But nope, nothing has really inspired a good post idea.
In the meantime, while I try to get past my writing dry spell, be sure to check out Bun’s blog. You won’t be sorry. And be sure to visit my other favorite bloggers. Here’s hoping I’ll be inspired by something, and soon.
