The other day I was on WordPress looking at postings, and looked at the statistics on my page.  I realized that, mid-way through April (okay, 2/3’s of the way through) I’ve only had one post.  I don’t know why I haven’t blogged more, but clearly I’m way below average even for my lackluster publishing.  I’m not sure why, unless it’s just sloth.


Now the idea of me being a sloth would amuse many people.  My current boss is amazed at how many projects I tackle. My previous boss, who I clashed with frequently, said that he’d only need a two person division if everyone did as much as I did.  And yet… I am, stalled in writing again.

It’s not a lack of ideas; Lord knows I’ve so many ideas and things about which I want to write and explore.  I have piles of articles, notes, drafts all waiting for publishing.  It just seems that recently, even with the advent of spring, even with the brighter days, when I get back to the apartment I just want to sit with the cat and chill until it’s time to go to bed.  The number of times I’m drifting off with Benny is surprising to me (it’d be even more but he has this tendency to feel the loss of muscle tone as I drift off, and yowls at me which then wakes me up).

I know. First rule of write club is to write.  I’ve violated it.  Again.  Yet again.

Well, I guess this is the first effort at kick-starting the process again.  At worst it was a good excuse to post a cute sloth picture 🙂

More to come, I hope.

    I feel as if you’ve peered into my noggin and ghost-written a post about my condition, Jeff. My bookmarks are overflowing, and I’ve got travel stories and photos galore I’m eager to share … yet my blog has mostly been mute and untended. But I’ve stopped worrying about it, or trying to analyze it. We do this for fun — and Lord knows we have enough other pressures in our lives — so we should be gentle with ourselves about blogging. I’ll be very eager to catch up when you do feel energized about posting again! But in the meantime, enjoy your break and your naps with Benny (even if they do end in yowling). Oh, and also, thank you for the sloth photo. They are *adorable,* aren’t they, even if they post even less often than you and I do. 😉
