Don’t Read This Post

I promised a post a day for the month of December. Today, I’ve got nothing except this post. Well, that’s not really true. I started two other posts today, so I had some ideas. That’s not nothing. But I wasn’t able to finish either of them. It was a busy day, plus I had to write something for another site that was due today. (The site is I’ve been writing for them for a few months now. If you like geeky things, you may enjoy it.)

The thing is, writing is actually hard. I don’t mean that in a woe is me way. It’s something I choose to do. No one is making me write a post a day. It’s hard in the way sports are hard or playing a musical instrument is hard. It takes practice to be any good at it. And, once you’re kind of good at it, it takes practice to stay kind of good.

This is what you get when you have a busy day and don’t have the energy to really write something. It feels like a cop out, but I wanted to keep my string of consecutive posts alive. I’ll try to do better tomorrow. At least you can’t say I didn’t warn you not to read this post.
