An Amuse Oeil

I’m hanging my head in shame, for this post is a terrible cop-out. In the interests of preserving my dignity, let’s all pretend that I’ve been too busy to post because my writing energies are focused on divers books in various stages of completion. If you are feeling particularly charitable, you may choose to believe that by ‘various stages of completion’ I mean ‘further along than chapter two, the first page, or mental cogitation.’

I saw this little jest spelled out in mismatched bulk-issue letters outside a certain fast-food franchise:

“He always wanted to be above average, but he was just too mean.”

Not sure what relevance it had to the cult of Jared, but I feel it sums up my glacial progress nicely.

I didn't know you were a diver Ms. Polonie - more power to your pen to write about diving!

Lol Mutley, that would be divers as in several/sundry. Blame Dickens. I do. ;)

Mental cogitation - great excuse - that's why I haven't put pen to paper all summer. "I've been thinking about it so much, i haven't had time to put pen to paper."
Oh, and all that time talking to Mr. eBay was actually "research" for a plot development.

Lol Foodkitty! Self-impeding procrastination loves company.

P.S. My online foible is flash games. Strictly to let the ideas come while my brain is on autopilot, of course ;-)
