Thinking or the Absence Thereof

Well, it seems a long time since I wrote anything of significance....at least to me. I know what I have to do but somehow I am not actually doing it.Such is the dilemma of a writer.

Are you actually a writer if you are not writing anything? I would think that actively writing is what makes you a writer. Writer implies the doing of the thing. Maybe author implies having written. So it is imperative to start applying the fingers to the keyboard.Of course, that might not produce much if the brain cells are also not involved and have been working also.

Oh dear, the problem also is that if the writer starts thinking about "writing", he or she becomes terrified. What? write? That's something so big and important that how am I going to even put word one down on this page? Well, excuses are very easy to come by. We seem to have a natural fount of them and they just come burbling up when needed. Too bad a plot doesn't come burbling up also.

So, I don't know what I will be doing next. Hopefully, I will write something more than the grocery list that I absolutely need soon. Does that give you a clue?
