When I sit down every night to write my post, I never know what's going to come out. Something my husband V said to me 2 minutes ago? Something in the news that made me cringe today when I read it on the internet? Something that woke me up out of a dream early this morning? Something I thought of 3 weeks ago that I wrote on a scrap of paper and found under the book on my nightstand?
What I end up writing every night is often as much a surprise to me as it is to you. Not only is the subject matter an open question; it also depends on my mood at the moment. Am I inspired? Nostalgic? Amused? Do I feel a rant coming on?
So many decisions. Especially for a notoriously indecisive person. Although I LOVE to blog, my least favorite part is deciding what to write.
As they say....It is now post time. And here's my list of the Top 10 blogs I considered writing today. I could also include the reasons I didn't write those blogs but I thought I'd spare you some of what goes on inside my brain since you get a pretty heavy dose as it is.
#10. My feelings about Barack Obama's amazing speech tonight; and my worries about the election
#9. How often in an election we vote AGAINST someone rather than FOR someone
#8. Joe Biden as a widower raising his children alone--and my father who had the same experience
#7 The fact that I missed Joe Biden's speech last night because I was watching Project Runway
#6 Why I was watching Project Runway
#5 A further exploration of the ice-bound river breaking up that I compared to creativity by calling it an analogy even though it is actually a metaphor
#4 My indecisiveness about whether or not I should correct my error of calling it an analogy rather than a metaphor
#3 A status report on my desk, and why a picture is worth a thousand words, and until I learn how to make them larger, my pictures are only worth 500 words
#2 An expansion of the clutter concept: my friend Priscilla suggests a blog about what's in my closet and my daughter Alli suggests listing the items in my car
#1 The fact that my trainer Brian cancelled my workouts for Monday, Wednesday and Friday-- how sorry I am that he is sick, but how grateful that he gave me the perfect excuse not to work out for an entire week
So there's my list. And since I hate making this decision every night, how about if YOU choose next time??
