I think everyone gets them now and then. I’ve had them for a few weeks now. And there’s nothing like a combination of self-doubt, preoccupation with something else, two weeks worth of trips with only dial-up access and a DoS attack on my web host to slow my blogging to a crawl. In fact, it’s even killed off my commenting on other people’s blogs (so that’s where that annoying idiot went!).
To top it all off, I’m getting the jitters about NaNoWriMo (yes, I’m going to try it again). I have no idea what I’m going to write about, other than it’s not going to be an attempt to finish the one from last year. That thing’s been stuck in my head and getting in the way of creative thought for almost 20 years. The fact that I abandoned it (again) has nagged at me all year. But I need to start fresh, so now it’s “Okay, brain. You don’t like me, and I don’t like you, but let’s get through this thing and then I can continue killing you with beer.”
