So, I have a cold. Having a cold means it’s hard for me to focus, but I know this isn’t the case for everyone. A lot of people feel that a cold is the perfect excuse to curl up in bed with a pen and paper (or a laptop) and to start, continue, or finish a writing project they are working on.
I fall into none of those categories of people.
When I’m ill, I lay in bed, suffer, and watch things on Netflix (right now I’m about 3 seasons into a Mad Men marathon). I know I should be better–I know I have the time to sit there and write, since I’m pretty much useless when it comes to moving or coordination or breathing at this point in time, but I still don’t write.
I just can’t gain clarity. I know I’m writing now, but this is a rant. Rants are different. I don’t have to plan a rant, research names for a rant, or ponder words and all their meanings for a rant.
Ranting is so much easier than writing.
