On being prompt

Some days I want to write something on this blog. And I try really hard. But I can’t write about the books I’ve been reading and the fate of the 4-3 Indiana Pacers every single day. You’d all leave. Hell, I’d leave.

On these days that I try really really hard, I find myself at the end of the day wondering what I should spit out. What should I say? I’ve been thinking about it all day, and I’ve got blogger’s block. And that’s embarassing — if I can’t say anything random, what chance do I have in life?

So from now on, I’m subscribing to a “writing prompts” e-mail list. It will send me ideas. They might be lame. If so, I’ll skip them. But sometimes they’ll be great. And if they are, you’ll know.

Anyway. This is what ends up being counted as a post on “blogger’s block” days. Sorry.
