Guest Post – How To Blog..

Pour yourself a glass of wine.

Kick the crap under the sofa so you have somewhere to sit.

Spend ten minutes trying to remember where you put the wine you just poured.

Realize it is Johnny Depp’s birthday and he is one fine looking 52. Send him an email. Spend 20 minutes pouring over pirate pictures.

Yell at the cat who won’t stop walking across your keyboard.

Stop trying to remember where you left your first glass of wine and just pour yourself another. Leave it sitting on the counter.

Get into an argument with some lunkhead on facebook who couldn’t find a brain cell with two hands and flashlight.

Read your favorite blogs and say nice things to people. Find a troll and stalk him across the internet for while, mocking him relentlessly.

Decide you’d really like a glass of wine, so go pour yourself one.

Open a blog post and stare at the page until you break out in a cold sweat. Write something, anything, keeping in mind that somebody’s probably going to hate it. This is okay, just remember hatred is the flip side of love.

It’s people’s indifference that we writers really fear.

The Tone of my Fingers

What is the tone of your writing? Do you feel it in your fingers? Sometimes I feel like my ten digits write the sound of my heart. I allow them free reign upon the playing field of my keyboard. The taps of the keys lessen the stress I feel in my shoulders. My body looks to my fingers for guidance, truer expression of emotion cannot be found.

I wonder if my right hand is angrier than my left. They compete for the middle of the keyboard and joust over space. I feel like putting one in time-out sometimes, but what would I be with only one hand? Would it hinder the sharing of my passion, of my true thoughts? I contemplate this as I feel the need to work my extensions to death. My joints creak with the effort, the effort is worth it though.

The tone of my fingers is the tone of me. I have to believe that as I drive them for more. Always more, my nails reflect the determination of my eyes. And so I continue to write, to share, and to possibly care. It is all my fingers know.
