Twiddling my thumbs

So I run into this blog and start reading yesterday, when it occurred to me that this person IS ME just in another body. But every word, turn-of-phrase, OMGSCREAMING and thought process (even regarding her children) were identical to mine.

Her blog, I might add, is highly successful and so she does talk a lot about her trolls (as I'm wont to do, as well).

It occurs to me that maybe - all those years' ago when I had a column - I should've kept it going. I really missed the boat when mine was sailing pretty good. Now I'm stuck reading what I /should've/ written over the past 20 years.

Eh. I blame it on plain ole writer's procrastination (in my case it's lasted for years). Or bad marriages which consumed 438498309420% of my time and effort.

But I /know/ that my talent is equal to hers and feel that I've squandered the good will of those who DID use to faithfully read me (and this would include the I hate Terri club, as well) with these droll and scant scribblings I'm writing these days.

I feel there's nothing to write for anyone else's interest, but by reading her blog, I realize that this is not true.

Still - I don't see me hopping back on the writing horse as happily as I did in 2002 and start writing prolific entries any time soon, so don't get all excited. It'll remain, most likely, as boring as it is right now. And that'll teach ya for reading me.
