Well, I’m just about out of gas here.
I’ve tried to be a faithful blogger, and what I wanted more than anything for this space was to offer a place for people to come and laugh for at my antics, wit, and clever li’l stories.
You know what? Before I realized it I was farther from that than I could imagine. This dump couldn’t be any farther from what I imagined it to be. I couldn’t be funny on command if I tried. Not on my life, not at gunpoint. I’m not funny, and I hate to admit that but dang – it’s true.
I could sit here and push and strain and grunt like a constipated truck driver with a swollen prostate and try to squeeze some humor out of my every day life, but I don’t see that much humor in it. What’s funny about an overweight, heart-attack bound depressive personality with no job and archaic ideas?
I could try and put a funny spin on my writer’s journey, but that’s about as funny as a stroke. I haven’t done anything to regale you with. I haven’t submitted a story or manuscript to anyone, I haven’t looked up anyone or anywhere to submit to, and I haven’t even finished a novel yet. I read an “interview” over on deviantART today from a 19 year-old writer who’s written seven novels. SEVEN. Frickin’ seven. And she’s just a freshman in college. Here I sit, rotting, wondering what my feet look like these days, scratching at weird itches and growing hair in weird places, wondering what I’m gonna do if I don’t get a damned job soon, and she’s finished seven frickin’ novels. What’s funny about my writer’s journey? The fact that I keep telling you there IS a writer’s journey when they’re ain’t.
Nothing’s funny. What do I have to make someone laugh with? So this place, which I wanted to be clever and witty and full of funny little stories about my life, cute little vignettes to make everyone smile … isn’t. Is. Not. Funny. And I’ve started getting comments indicating I’m not only not funny, I’m downright boring.
So, with that in mind, I have to make a change. I guess I have to find something to focus my blogging, because my life is too doggone dull to try and blog every day about. It just … it’s boring.
So what’d you do over the weekend?
