Chronic Beginningitis

I have a problem. I've termed it chronic beginningitis. This is where I begin things and then fizzle out once the novelty or my initial drive has worn out.

I'd never make it!
Case in point: this blog.  A few posts and a recipe under my belt and all the sudden, kaput! My engine's run out of steam. But I don't want this to become one of the myriad hobbies that I've started, invested in, and then given up on.  I want to succeed at something for once, damnit!!!

And since I began this thing with the intention of improving myself, I'm writing about the only thing I can at this point in time: I am blogging about my bloggers-block.  How meta!

Because I can't seem to put two thoughts together coherently right now, I'm posting a slideshow of my various weekend activities.  Consider it a preview of what I'll be writing about once I get over the hump.  Here goes:

Vote for what you'd like to read about first!  Maybe it will help me get motivated to write.

How about you? Do you ever want to do something but just can't find the motivation? What are some of your strategies for getting going?

  1. I want to eat that crusty bread and those (soy sauce?) eggs, but that crawfish looks like he's very happy about that pea, and I want to know why. Actually what I was very excited about the start of your blog is your ability to tell stories. And not necessarily exact real-life or personal stories. If you could pull off a blog that keeps me in touch with you personally while also telling stories as well as you do, I think you'll have something very original. Like I don't know if it was your plan for this blog but id like to pretend I was in the imaginary inn, eating crusty bread in above picture. That's what I actually imagined when I read your first post. If that helps your beginningitis at all...
