I'm sick of other people's blogs. Really. But that's partly because I haven't been as diligent in putting my thoughts to e-paper, despite the many things happening demanding to be put down on paper for posterity.

I'm sick of other people's blogs because most of the writers are either around my age (same angst, same problems, same interests) or they're just too young (been there, done that, please realize there is a life beyond high school, cell phones, clubbing and petty crime!).

I'm sick of other people's blogs because I'm sick of my own blogs. Really, who gives a shit about an opinionated has-been local comic book personality who only got famous because he was friend to Elmer, Jio, Ilog and James? I can hear my silent readers yelling "Get over it!" And they'd be right.

I am sick of blogs in general because writing simply takes too much time and energy. It's disappointing having to disappoint readers who want to know more about what goes on in one's head, when absolutely nothing occupies one's head for long stretches of time.

I want to write: something new, fresh and spontaneous. I want to love writing the way I want to love painting and comic books.

Help me, God, I can?t do this alone.

Get a grip honey! (Those words will NEVER leave my lips for ANY straight guy) You're just having a writing block, you're mind is numbed by all the humdrum stuff you HAVE to do that the creative part is practically dying to come out but is as dry as a well during El Ni�o. Take a break, have a kitkat.

But honey, writing is a discipline. It does require time and effort to write. Even everyday. ;)
