Broken Promise

I broke a promise. On August 12, I wrote an entry in which I stated that I would begin posting a series of entries that I was writing off-line. It’s been more than a week since I said that, and I have yet to post the first installment. The simple truth is that they are not ready to post yet because I’ve stalled out on writing them. What I want to do for the third entry has been especially hard to get going. There’s still something in the way, I don’t know what it is yet – but when I figure it out, I hope, the words will flow more easily than they have so far.

I am still writing. I do not yet know when I will be ready to post. I am not going to let myself drop this. I intend to make good on my promise to finish those entries.

That’s all I have to say write now.
(okay, that was a strange slip of the fingers, I think I’ll leave it “write” as it is… (am I the only one amused by that?))

I think I’m going to go work on somethign fun for a while.

  1. *Guffaw Guffaw* yes I do believe I understand the joke, “write” sounding deliciously similar to “right”, an unintentional play on words as it were, had me in stitches old boy *Snort*

  2. please don’t feel your posts should be perfect.
    you’ll show the rest of us up.
    and we will rise up.
    and smite thee…

  3. You didn’t break a promise. You’re still working and we’re still waiting. I’m not an editor who is deadlining you. 🙂


  4. PS: And even the posts never come you’re still posting… even if it is out of guilt. So I get “see” more of you and alls well.
