I Got Nothin'

How do you go about saying something, when you have nothing to say? Well, let's find out.

When I sat down at the keyboard this morning, I knew what I was writing about on the music blog.. It was something I had thought of several days ago, and today was the day to do it. write it, check it,done.

Spent a little time with the assembled tweet troops who are also up at ungodly hours in the morning along with a guest appearance from one of the usual late know those musician types. Catch up with them, share a few laughs, then everyone goes away...for a while anyway. Anything exciting to write about. uh No.

There was a chance I was meeting a friend for lunch, so I thought I'd wait until I got back to see if any earth-shattering events happened during our time together. uh No.  Lunch was very nice, a time to catch up on the events of the past few weeks, bitch a little lot, and enjoy each other, as we always do. But do I have anything to write about...uh No.

So why do I try to write about something, when there is nothing to write about? Who the hell knows. It has something to do with mentally challenging yourself, with keeping a sort of discipline and something to do with consistency.

So now we have four paragraphs about close to nothing. Hey Seinfeld did it for what...nine seasons?

And that's a lot to say, without saying anything.

  1. Just bought a new book and I think its going to be a great one. It talks about things like consistency, building a practice, finding ideas for writing etc etc. I thought of it as I read this post.
