Dear Reader,

Apparently, the blog post for today does not have a title. Under normal writing conditions I have a title and write from start to finish on my posts. For some reason the need to write exists, but the creative spark to come up with a title is missing. Our new puppy is whining about something at the moment. That dog probably just wants a treat… yeah… that was it the dog wanted a treat. My interest in buying a few Margaritaville Hawaiian shirts on eBay has spiked recently. That trend does seem to be one that is going to maintain momentum. Of all the things to catch my interest I’m not sure expanding my Hawaiian shirt collection was one that needed to jump to the forefront. It has with a vengeance and that seems to be something that is not going away any time soon.

Tonight was going to be a night for writing. This one was going to the blog post to get me back on track to push me back into the 3,000 plus word per day club. Today was going to be my day. It turned out that giving blood today took a little more out of me than I had expected. Sure it was the right thing to do and it was something that makes me feel like I made a contribution or did something at the very least. I have already worked through a cycle of my 48 ounce Nalgene water bottle today. That bottle has been filled a second time today and we will see how far my efforts get before sleep wins out. Picking a good topic that I was really passionate about would probably help me gear up to write a good essay that would eat up 3,000 words with ease.

Tomorrow is going to be a big day. We have a lot of stuff planned. This Chromebook will probably be used at a variety of different places. I just might be able to steal a few minutes to write. My goal had been to start using Google Keep on a more regular basis to catch notes and ensure that I have a solid backlog of topics to write about. Sure that sounds like an easy thing to do when you are writing about it and thinking about it. Executing that vision will take a little bit of persistence. That is going to be very true based on picking topics to write about that do not require me to use the topic heading to break up the posts. That is very easy to do to extend the word count, but it does not support the idea of writing a single overall comprehensive essay each day. That is the way things are going to have to work. The name of the game is going to be to pick a topic and make with some writing.

Sometimes I wonder about just what a topic would have to have to generate 3,000 words. For example, writing 3,000 words about Stevie Ray Vaughan might be possible, but it might take longer than one day. Sure that SRV guitar was epic and it had enough character to probably inspire 3,000 words of prose. Ok —- I just spent like 20 minutes watching SRV YouTube videos. It was worth it, but that did not help my writing productivity for the night. I need to switch back to my Pandora application and listen to some streaming music and write for like an hour.
