I wanted to go and rant about stuff. HP? Maybe Netflix? maybe DC's relaunch?
But here's the odd thing. I'm working on Focused Fandom: Cosplay, Costuming, and Career. And I'm trying to find things to write about, but as soon as something gets me into a good, powerful annoyance I can share – I'm back to examining editing, or publishing, or somthing else.
Seriously, I'm frustrated about not being able to focus my frustration.
This is one of the strange things with a blog – you get into patterns. This is usual, and it is good, but there are moments your brain doesn't engage. This is probably even more likely now since most of my focus at this point is my three different series (Scott was a big inspiration). So I'm used to regular work on things, which isn't as spontaneous as these columns.
And again, the editing – which is very regular.
Most ironically? I just got a column out of talking about my lack of frustration frustration.
So let's draw some useful lessons – if you're blogging progeeky-wise, then you're going to have those moments of lost inspiration, out of patterns, etc. It's important to remember, because they will happen. However the discipline of regular work pays off, even if there are times you're interrupted.
But you might get a post out of it.
