The blog is waiting . . . waiting . . .

Jeez, this sucks.

As if I weren't neurotic enough already, it seems that having a blog is creating a bizarre psychic pressure . . . I know it's out here, electronically patient, waiting for me to have something to say.

Waiting . . . waiting . . .

Must . . . resist! Must . . . write STAR WARS. Must . . . write STAR WARS . . .

Thousand bucks that SW fans everywhere are convulsing at the thought of having to *make* yourself write Star Wars...

Back when I was first appointed moderator of some online forum, I felt exactly like that.

Bizarre psychic pressure of having to be there all the time, just to make sure to be up to date and everyone's playing nice, and if nobody's there, to post something myself.

But since you already actively realized you've got more important things to do than while away time on the net, I suppose you'll be over it rather soon. It takes some times getting used to, though, figuring out how to turn the need to come up with something to say into just posting when you already GOT something to say.

Speaking about needs, I need to sleep for tomorrow's English exam.

Hey Matt, I usually just put aside twenty minutes or so whenever I need a break from whatever I'm doing (like packing) and use that time to blog. Doesn't have to be profound every time, you know.

Like, how about you give everyone some book recommendations or CD recommendations or something? Start little! Move to the Big Thoughts when you're ready....

Yeah, Gabe has the right of it. It doesn't matter much what you say, there are people out there excited just to keep up with their favorite author. This blog:

http://www.neilgaiman.com/journal/journal.asp

pretty much exemplifies what I mean in being random yet readable. Perhaps, you can include passages of books that've stuck out to you by those very authors that inspired you to pick up that pen in the first place or better yet, we get a taste of those lesbian elves cut out of Lucas project 1138...

Here's the big secret about blogs. Nobody actually cares what is written, they will just find something to theroize about anyway. So let's say you write about your clothes dryer having extra static electricity - someone will come up with a mega-ultra-spoiler than in the next novel Character A is made of static electricity, and has to battle an evil army of clothes dryers. So no need for "blogitis."

Hmm that actually sounds like a good idea for a book.
