Writing When You Don't Want To

So why the hell am I blogging? Well, why the hell not? I have three books completed (not finished, completed that's an important distinction!) and a request to revise and submit one of them from an actual real live editor at a real live publishing company and I am not doing it right now. Why?

Because I can't.

And I ain't gonna say more about that, because, you know, that's like all personal and stuff. And I don't wanna go there on this blog.

So I still want to write and in fact am completely miserable when I don't. Hence, the blog. We'll see if I can keep it up.

So if you wanna read, go ahead. What am I going to talk about or do on this thing? Well, basically anything I want. Probably will include political rants at some point and if that bothers you, then don't read. I'll probably talk about books that strike my fancy -but unless I really hate a book, I probably won't talk about it at all. Why? I can't be bothered. It would seem too forced and I am just not about forcing the writing muse at this point in my life. I can't write about books or movies which don't arouse strong feelings. It's just too hard. So if you are looking for reasonable, well thought out critical discussion about books, go somewhere else. If you want unmitigated ranting or raving, then maybe you'll like this blog. Or maybe not. Up to you, really. Ditto for movies and religion and politics and just about anything I want to write about.

So go ahead. Enjoy. Or not. Have fun.


  1. Hi Mary,
    I like your attitude and am actually looking forward to your views on religion and politics and other "taboo" subjects. (Sex used to be a taboo subject but now EVERYONE talks about that!) I'm curious as to whether or not I'll be offended. :)
    Best of luck with your new blog!

  2. Yes. You will probably be offended. You have been warned. :) Thanks for commenting. Wish I had a placque or something to give you as "First Commentor" of what, I am sure, will be a world reknowned blog. :)

  3. Enjoy the blog world. It's your party say what you want to.
