Into the Void

"You should start a blog," he said.
"I lack discipline," I replied.

What I didn't say was that I had a blog- a neglected and dusty blog last updated four years prior. After four years, maybe the truth was that I wasn't blogger material. In the words of F. Scott Fitzgerald, "You don't write because you want to say something. You write because you have something to say." Maybe I had nothing to say. But the words nagged at me, "you should start a blog", dogging my thoughts.  Maybe I have something to say after all, something that should be said even if not to an audience.
