I’ve spent that last half hour trying to get started writing.
I typed a sentence, erased that sentence and visited Twitter.
Then I typed a sentence, erased that sentence and designed two bags on Timbuk2.com. I didn’t order either one.
Then I googled writing prompts, since it worked so well for me last night. I read a bunch and didn’t like any of them.
I checked out Facebook for a while.
Then I started looking at comforters online. Mine is old, faded and one of my cats puked on it today. But I can’t find one I like.
Then I tried another sentence, erased it too and figured out what percentage of my posts have been less than one thousand words. The answer is 17 percent which means, if I stick to an 83 percent rate, about 65 posts will be less than one thousand words when I finish.
But that number may be higher because I’m obviously not getting one thousand words written tonight.
