is this what's known as a "pregnant pause"?

A week? It's been a week since I posted? Sheesh...

We're at the time of the semester where things are getting really hectic. Mid-term is fast approaching; papers are coming in left and right, and one-on-one conferences will soon occupy my every waking moment.

We're also at that point in the pregnancy of Ordinary World where we're just waiting for the moment to come. There still needs to be one or two details to smooth over. Hard to find the time, but it's gotta be done, and I can hardly wait.

All this leaves me at a loss for something to write about, however. I've not done much physical composing other than personal, private writing. I've not made any appearances or had any wild stories to tell (truth be told, my character lead far more exciting lives than I). I haven't even heard any good jokes lately.

So I'll divert the attention away from me and on to you, dear readers: What do you write when there's seemingly nothing to write about?

When this has happened to me I've taken Mr. Sorkin's advice. I've written about not having anything to write about. You seem to have taken the same advice to heart!

I tend to read when I can't think of anything to write. Usually, this sparks an idea or motivates me.

I do too, Carolyn, for the same reason. Thanks for sharing!

I read, too. Or even better, go to the library or the bookstore and just start browsing, with no aim or title or subject in mind.

That's a great idea, Belle -- my problem is that I want to start buying books when I'm in a bookstore (just as bad as being in a chocolate shop)!

Thanks for the comment!
