So, I've Failed

February 24th, 2014, 7pm

It was 16.7°C with few clouds. The breeze was light.

Alright, I hate to be self critical or negative, but I have to be honest with myself. I would love to pretend I have been writing elsewhere. I would love to say that I diligently fell into my imagination every evening after leaving my cubicle, fighting through traffic and then watching a little Real Housewives via DVR. The truth is that I have only been leaving my cube, suffering through traffic and then watching a lot of the real Housewives (i.e., every franchise, including Miami) everyday.

Of course when I have a little wine I recommit to 30 minutes a day of creativity. I wax endlessly about my dreams of writing prolifically, getting published and then reaching the moment where I sit eye to eye with Oprah as I attribute my success to my devotion to the ritual of writing.

Well, I’ve had a little wine, and here I am, unsurprisingly recommitting to the fantasy of my writing ritual. what did I write about? My inability to write. I wonder which Housewives franchise is on tonight.

I am a writer who is trying to write everyday despite the typical distractions of work, cat, boyfriend, cooking and workouts. Hi!
