The waiting is the hardest part

It'd be best for the entry I just wrote not to go onto my journal until tomorrow, because of more people reading during the week than the weekend. That made me realize: I'm really, really used to getting my words out really, really quickly. That's blogging for you*...or, in another time in my life, newspaper writing, where I wrote for a weekly paper so stuff never waited more than six days to hit the public eye, and it was usually much quicker than that.

Not immediately posting the entry I just wrote made me feel a little guilty: I should share this! People want reading material! Gee, Chris, words can wait. Magazine articles wait; short stories wait; and, especially, novels wait, what with all the producing work needed to get one ready to publish. And there's plenty of reading material already around!

So. It'll wait. I'll try to be entertainingly post-y in the meantime.

I'll also try not to have anything Dead Zone-y happen to me between now and tomorrow, the whole knocked-into-a-coma-for-years, get-psychic-powers, see-vision-of-Stillson-destroying-the-world-and-decide-to-do-something-about-it-plus-hey-you-finally-get-to-sleep-with-Brooke-Adams thing. Because, c'mon, I'm no Chris Walken.

* It's even more Tweeting for you, as Twitter's such an of-the-now thing. By the way, I "get" Twitter now, which I didn't at first circa 2008, and of course I "get" blogging, but Facebook falls into this awkward in-between spot that doesn't work so well for me. I do have a Facebook account, but I do my best to dabble, not get engrossed in Facebook stuff. (I didn't even bother to get a personalized Facebook url; I'm just a number.

    George Floyd should still be alive. Officer Derek Chauvin killed George Floyd. We had video proof. We've had over ten months of protest, much of…

  • Would I enjoy it?

    I'm a fairly basic eater. For a few days I was more basic because on Saturday the 10th, I chomped the end of my tongue. Bad scratch. It didn't bleed…

  • Trying to end blog constipation! Also, feelings, ugh.

    Yeah. That was a week of me not blogging. Whatever blogging I might have done during that time would probably have been really repetitive. I haven't…
