Stop staring

I'm having a staring contest with this blog. I really, really want to win, but I'm no longer completely confident that I will.

When I decided a few weeks back that I was going to write more frequently, and write about anything -- fiction, short plays, stream of consciousness ramblings, whatever -- I thought this would be a good way to get a long stagnating blog on track, and also get me writing a bit more often. Neither seemed like bad things.

As is the case with most ideas, it went quite well for the first few days, and then kind of fell apart after about a week.

But the birthing process, even when it's only an idea you're birthing, is not necessarily an easy one. I haven't given up on this blog, and I haven't given up on the notion of writing something every day.

But I ran into a stumbling block.

I have an idea for a short play. I actually have an idea for 3 short plays that are all loosely tied together. The series would be called "Dinner and Drinks. At the moment, though, there's one I'm kind of burning to write. It doesn't have a title yet, because titles are usually the last things to come to me, but the first line of the play is, "Can I get you another drink?" and the last line is, "Why won't you treat me like the dirty slut I am!"

The thing is, I'm not quite there...not quite ready to write it. Which is annoying because I was intending it to be the next entry in this blog. Which is why the next entry has shown up until now.

So I guess I'm giving up the staring contest. I guess I'll back down and write something else instead of this short play. I'll let the blog win this round, because it doesn't matter who wins and who loses if the art suffers, right?
