I sit and stare at the blank page for a while. Then I get up and run in circles, screaming and shouting. Okay, maybe that part is only in my head.

Then I sit down, put my fingers on the keys, and start with random thoughts. Once the swirly burlies are out of my head, I find I'm good to start something new.

[image error]I’m sorry. I know I promised 12 reasons why I should have gotten bariatric surgery sooner rather than later, but I lost interest in the project half-way through. Perhaps I’ll pick it up again later.
