Turn Me ON!

Wait. No, yes that works.

Writing is hard. Actually, writing is very hard. Especially when the pressure to produce mind blowing, paradigm busting, or slightly humorous content is building.

Sometimes I would rather not write, turn off, and watch the world implode.

Don’t get me wrong, I kind of get off on the psychological, sometimes physical, torment that the writing process inspires. But, when comedic insights hide like your favorite stimulant lost deep in the weave of shag carpet, trying to write something creative and entertaining and envy inducing is an exercise in complete and utter demoralization.

That’s why I’m here today, writing, despite the shit storm of defeat swirling above me. A few turds are bound to fall out and, knowing the recent trajectory of my creativity, one or two or ten will hit me in the face. But that’s okay.

What’s the Joe Dirt quote?

It’s always darkest just before dawn.

Well, the poo is so thick right now I can’t see the beautiful light of my mind shining in the space right behind my eyes, but the storm will pass. The sun will crest the horizon and I will be funny and smart and handsome again.

I will turn on again. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But, turn on I will.

Like my work? Hit that little heart just below and help me spread the word. Or, for the more more proactive types, give me a follow or hit my website www.writegrind.com. There may be a virtual hug waiting for you at the end of that rainbow. Cheers!
