I am stuck

I am so stuck right now.

I've been staring at this empty blog box, trying to force myself into blogging something. Hate it when this happens.

I thought about writing about Snooki and her bestseller done. But, really, what is there to say? Who didn't see this coming?

I thought about talking about the first thing I say to my class in September when I start teaching. (It's "I hate to fly"), but I wasn't really sure where to go with it after that.

You see, there are only a few times where I'll readily admit to writer's block, and right now is one of them. I'm stuck on what I have to blog about. I'm stuck on exactly how I'm going to revise. I'm stuck on just about everything.

And it's not because I have no ideas, it's because I have too many. I want to read several books--A DROP OF THE HARD STUFF, THE ACCIDENTAL BILLIONARES, and SATORI. There's a lot of TV I want to watch... college basketball, BEING HUMAN, and LIGHTS OUT. And I have a ton of stories I want to write.

And I can't focus on them. I can't focus on one thing. I'm focusing on nothing. I'm scatterbrained.

And until this passes, writing, blogging, concentrating, is going to be really tough.

Hate to say this, but its always nice to know that I'm not the only one. My 2010 sucked, but my 2011 is much better. Well, when you're low, you can only go one way...

Also, I can commiserate with being so "focused" on so many things eliminates the ability to focus on one thing. I've figured out that if I can focus on the one, simplest thing, I get it done quicker and that mojo helps me get the next thing down.

The hills can be high, but the views are great once you climb them. I'm in La Jolla, which is why I am thinking in those terms.
