When I sat down to write this blog post, I drew a blank. The calm that follows trips and the writers' retreat has its disadvantages. Calm can be boring. How many times can I write posts about hiding away in my work space with the door closed? Do blog readers really care about my daily word count? How can I make the same old story interesting?
After a trip to the grocery store, I sat down at my computer and typed some words. I stopped and stretched after two hours. Then I walked downstairs to make a cup of tea. And then I came back and sat down and typed more words. See what I mean?
And this is pretty much what I plan to do each day through Monday.
To keep from boring you to tears (and chasing all of you away forever), I'm going to do a series of FIVE THINGS lists. Since I'm one of those freaky people who loves television and isn't afraid to admit it, I'll start with:
Five Favorite Television Shows:
1. American Idol (whenever its new season starts)
2. So You Think You Can Dance
3. The Mentalist
4. Desperate Housewives
Any other TV watchers out there? If so, what do you like to watch?
