Some Ramblings...

Posted by: Lisa,

The nice thing about having a blog with the word "detritus" in the title is that you don't have to feel obligated to write something profound all the time (or any of the time). It also has the word "daily," which based on historical record is completely untrue. That will just have to remain the way that it is.

I have been told that when writers can't think of anything to write about, they should just write anything. Sometimes the process of writing itself can produce ideas. That really isn't the reason I haven't been writing - I think mostly it's that I haven't been very focused.

I have lofty goals for myself that I hardly ever hit. Sometimes it's my fault - sometimes it's not. But in case you're remotely interested, here are the things I've been working on. Trying to hit the gym is ongoing. Also, working on this site. I read my last book club book, and also the autobiography of Jane Lynch. I've started reading the Steve Jobs biography.

I'm doing a miserable job of practicing the horn. Seems to be something that I either do religiously or not at all. Not much in between! I also have an open project of putting music files on the web that is moving too slowly.

I send weekly emails for Sherilyn and Frankie M's website and make other updates here and there. That's a paid gig that I really appreciate.

Also, I try to spend some time with family and friends, catch a little TV and follow the Giants and Jets games. Oh, yeah, and work full time and spend time with the hubby, the puppies and the kitty. And keep up with my online Scrabble games...

Mind you, none of this is complaining. I love having a lot to do. Having tasks to switch to keeps me from being bored, which is a feeling I've always hated.

Yep - I think I'm done writing now. Will see you at my next quasi-daily update.
