Cool Stuff

One (more) HOT & JUICY....MESS

I'll let you all in on a little "writer's secret" of mine...I sometimes will  come up with the post title first then write the piece to fit the title.  I don't do this all the time but once in awhile I'll have a cool title and I will just write something to fit the title. The problem is that some times the substance of the post isn't as good as the clever or unique title I came up with first.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

I can tell you right now that I am really reaching to put this post together. Some of it is it just isn't happening...the post subject/title isn't working right but a big part of it is my continued....exhaustion. YEP, when I get close to a bed or to laying down...I fall out and nod off. But if I try to lay down....I'm SUDDENLY  WIDE AWAKE  like I am right now. It is incredibly frustrating to be on this roll coaster ride and not feel like I can get off...

Anyway I am just going to shut it down....


  1. I do the same thing myself, quite often. I will think of a cool title and work the actual content around it.

    I have also found the content doesn't live up to the expectations the title sets.

  2. Yea the content sure fizzled out this time, didn't it?! At least I know that I'm ill and with out sleep so there is a legitimate reason.

    Ian, been thinking a lot about you lately. Hope all is going well with you during the transition back to Dublin. Peace Brother!
