Tongue Tied

I haven’t had much to post lately. Actually, that’s not true. I have lots to say. It’s like thoughts and ideas and posts are just spilling out of me so fast I can’t get them down to paper computer monitor before they float downstream. I have half-baked scraps of posts strewn all over the place. Shards of ramblings that I need to fully develop into posts before I can publish but I just can’t seem to get my act together. Sure, I’ve been home from work with a sick 7 month old for almost 2 weeks with no time to put on pants, nevermind write. And sure, I myself have been really ill. But it’s just so damn frustrating to have so much to say and not enough time to figure out how to say it. It’s like some kind of clogged writer’s block. I start to type all stream of consciousness, only to find that somewhere near the end of the post, I’ve run out of steam and forgotten where this is all going. Or how I meant to construct the narrative. Or the example I wanted to include. So I just keep saving drafts, hoping that I’ll have the chance to revisit, come back, and whip that draft into shape. I’m still hopeful that I’ll have that chance, but in the meantime, just wanted to check in and say “Hey Interwebz! Yeah, how you been?”
