Creative idle

Before I started Summing-Up, I thought I was never going to run out of structured topics. It was before I decided to read Maugham, it was before the election, it was before December. I ran out after a few days as I recall. I don’t have a structure for the blog in general, so scheduled topics don’t make sense. I hate the idea of journalling with it, but when it’s after nine o’clock and I haven’t written a single post, it’s hard to do much else. I want to escape from the world, yet I can’t bring myself to do it. So Summing-Up becomes a lot of idling. Even with subject lines, I’m back to thinking about writing about my history of peripherals.
