Today, I step into the tetrahedron to take on blog fatigue! That’s right, friends. A tetrahedron. Why? All the good 2D shapes were taken. Stupid Ultimate Fighting and their octagon. Stupid boxers/wrestlers and their “ring” that’s actually a square. Where does the madness end? I’d say in non-Euclidean space, but that just screws with geometry even more… But I digress.

Blog fatigue! I see it. I know that NaNoWriMo is coming up, and that many of us need to rest our weary, carpal-tunnel-plagued, thrice-cursed arms, but don’t stop writing! Life could be so much worse! You could be like this poor fellow, asking for a handout on the street:

You'd think he'd be able to talk H.G. Wells' estate out of some royalties...

We must valiantly carry on! Even if it’s some nonsensical tirade about people not writing, you must write! Even if it’s only a couple of hundred words a day! Your followers care about you, and they miss you when you don’t visit them and shower them with the glory of your written word.

I used to make fun of bloggers before I became one. That’s kind of the trend with things, isn’t it? You make fun of the people with iPhones until you manage to afford one, and then… Oh, and then… I found a quotation years ago, that I absolutely loved. “Blogging. Never before have so many with so little to say said so much to so few.” I suppose that I used to think that this was true, but you know something? Once you really get into it, it’s hard to stop. Please, friends, don’t let your blogs go without your input. I like the motivation that your post and comments provide. Plus, you know… Four days til NaNo. You can disappear then. Good luck!



  1. I never write anything on my own site, not only because I don’t have much to say, but also partially because I agree with that quotation in the final paragraph of your post. However, I do enjoy reading your material, and check your site every day – keep it up, good sir!

  2. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know. 😛

    I also know I’m not the only one you’re talking to, but you can’t write “weary, carpal-tunnel-plagued, thrice-cursed arms” and not expect me to read it as ” *cough cough* V, stop whining *cough*”. Which I do appreciate, ’cause I don’t get shit done without accountability.

    Sigh. Just let me put the kettle on. *grumble grumble grumble*

    • That’s just fine. I’ve already had my coffee for the day, so I’m ready to go. 😀 And honestly, if we can’t keep each other accountable now, we’ll never make it through next month.

      • Exactly. Though, I have been writing. Just nothing public.

        • Likewise. I got a new pair of Moleskines on Monday, and I’m making great progress on filling the first one with some draft-style things for next week.
