I'm irritated at myself this week.  I'm irritated because I haven't been able to sit down and focus on a thing to write about for a blog post.  Every time I've pulled together with the intention of starting a draft post, I end up looking at my notebook or my files and realizing I've spent the last hour doing nothing but jotting notes about my upcoming campaign.

Now, granted, I'm happy that ideas are flowing about this campaign.  I'm excited to run a campaign; I haven't done so in about a year.  I'm excited that I've somehow been inspired enough about this campaign to churn my brain on in in the background.  What I'm upset about is that I can't control my work a little better.  I've been trying to make sure I post something on this blog that no one reads once a week as an exercise in powering through the writers blocks I usually encounter.  I'm disappointed in myself because I didn't really have the discipline to do that this week.  On the plus side, I wrote; on the down side, I didn't write what I'd hoped -- and intended -- to write.

So... I'm cheating by posting about not being able to thing about something to post about.  But at least I'm writing something not involved in planning this campaign.  Maybe even this little step will at least help me break free a little so I don't burn out on the campaign before it has even started.
