I just asked my wife, Sarah, what I should blog about, and she said I should write about The Rhetorical Function of Geographical Space and Movement in Nationalist Narrative Fiction. Now, it’s quite possible that she wanted ME to write about this because this is the title of her 30 page paper she’s working on for a class in her PhD program. You know how they say that if you’re a young married couple, babysitting someone’s kids is one of the best forms of birth-control? Well, that’s kind of what it’s like to be married to a PhD student. While I may have had ideas before of maybe, someday wanting to get a PhD, being married to a PhD student has cured me of any such desires in the future. No WAY.
So, I will not be writing about The Rhetorical Function of Geographical Space and Movement in Nationalist Narrative Fiction. I know, that must upset some of you. But I will try and get Sarah to post her paper when she’s done so you can all read it.
But…I do seem to have writer’s block. I don’t have any problems coming up with photos to share on my AdamWC.me site, and I’m really having fun getting into some iPhone photography at the moment. But as far as the written word is concerned…I seem to be struggling a bit to come up with anything I want to share. And the few things I’d love to write about…well, I probably shouldn’t. What do you all do when you have writer’s block? Sit down and just do some stream of consciousness? Wait around for something to just strike your fancy? Forget about it and just move on, and wait for inspiration?
I’d invite you to share some of your ideas for getting past times when you couldn’t think of anything to write or blog about below.
