Getting over writer’s block

Screen Shot 2016-04-12 at 10.05.08 am

I don’t often get stuck for ideas on what to blog about, but Blinking Cursor Syndrome has hit my brain today, so why don’t we explore that?

Did you know that WoogsWorld will soon be turning eight? That is 2057 posts and 25 discarded ones sitting in the draft section. Those have dramatic titles which include…

  • The end of the world as we know it.
  • How to make corn fritters (I burnt the shit out of them so I had no nice photos to go with the recipe)
  • Should I buy a toilet mat to soak up badly directed piss?
  • Ten thing to do when you are waiting at the RTA

Is it any wonder that those posts did not see the light of day? And then there are the ideas that come to me at 3am while I am lying in bed. I always say to myself, “Please remember that in the morning. That will be a cracker of a post.” Then I fall asleep and have  hot sex with a famous actor, wake up and forget that nugget of gold.

And then there are the notes I write in my phone.

Chuy did this last week

Mr. Woog did this 20 years ago

That does sound very dramatic but what actually happened was that 20 years ago, Mr. Woog rolled over in bed and accidentally whacked me on the nose. STARS! I SAW STARS! I also saw stars when Isobel was chasing Chuy around the house the other day and I reached down to grab him at the same time he shot up onto the sideboard.  BOOM. Straight into my nose. The family came running as I staggered to the bedroom in agony. Isobel and Chuy continued “playing” while I wept.
