Well, my scheme to get unblocked started last October 10th. I had a shit summer and couldn’t get the juice started and I owe it all to Trump. I was just so nuts that he might pull out a victory I decided to start baking him as best I could daily. I committed to post every day, seven days a week, both as my form of RESISTANCE and to get the pumps primed again.

I am highly motivated, that’s for sure, but I have discovered that the best way to get writing and keep writing is to write every day.

My posts are short, of course, and based on news stories, so I never run out of fodder, so I can keep the pace up, but it ain’t always easy.

And, fair disclosure, this is the longest I’ve ever gone with 40 years of writing that I didn’t hit a logjam. My longest writer’s block last about a year.

Of course, now that you asked, I can’t think of a fucking thing to write for tomorrow, so you jinxed me and WTF!

You are such an awesome writer, Alexainie, I feel envious often of your ability to mine to such depths. And also to pull off some brilliant turns of phrase.

Nice to be reading you.
