What if its not? Is this a test of the universe to see if you actually can write under pressure? Are the blog gods laughing at us? Showing us they are in control of our writing life, not us.
Okay, Uncle...Help...SOS....PLEASE. Give me an idea. I check all the usual places. The newspapers, other blogs, wiki, the comics...Hey don't laugh you can get some great ideas there. Nothing. Not one little thing comes to mind.
Now I am getting desperate. I love keeping this blog up. It helps me to de-stress. It is my happy place .... Until I can't think of something to write about.
Et tu, blogger?
Why have you turned on me? What did I do to you? I am sorry. I don't know what for, but I am truly sorry. Please forgive me.
Nothing. I still have no idea what I am going to write about. I will have a blank screen staring back at me, laughing. AAGGHHH.
Wait. What is this? There are words on here. There is a blog post. Wow, how did that happen?
THANK YOU, BLOG GODS. I will never take you for granted again.
Wait did I just hear someone laughing!!!!
Dante Alighieri, in Canto II of The Inferno:
O Muses, O high genius, aid me now!
O memory that engraved the things I saw,
Here shall your worth be manifest to all!
