Well, its been four days since my last post, and that one was a bit of a cop-out, really. I mean I had already written it. (well, my bits at least) Incidentally, however, the fine print in the AIM EULA dictates that AOL owns the copyright to all conversations and indeed everything transmitted via their service, so assuming for arguement's sake that this is in any way legally defensible (which it isn't, not by a long shot), AOL is now in the dubious position of owning the copyright to a world domination scheme. Anyways, to the subject of my delinquency.
The question one might ask in view of such blogging inactivity, is "what has he been doing for the past month?" a question with two readily availible answers. "Everything," and "Nothing." "Everything," would imply that I am far too busy to be arranging, or attempting to arrange, "1000 words in cunning order," on any regular basis. This is patently false as anyone who has IMed with me or indeed paid any kind of attention to my posts of late. "Nothing," on the other hand, would imply that there is nothing of note happening in my life and that I'm incapable of finding anything to write about. This is a bit closer to the mark, but still not quite true, as there have been things happening and things I've done that were indeed possible to relate humorously or interestingly with written word. The fact of the matter is, I'm just not, for lack of a better phrase, feeling it. I guess I've just been out of it lately, not due to any ailment or anything but a general malaise. This is a problem as while I will not pretend that the world will stop turning at the cessation of my blogging, much less an inconsistancy thereof.
The problem is that as a writer I need to be in the habit of writing every day, and in fact this blog was an attempt to get myself in the habit, and as you can see it has not succeded there.
So, I am going to borrow an idea from the wonderful, whimsical Pansi (who I should have linked by now because I rather enjoy her blog yet have fallen behind in reading it because I use the links on this blog for my trawling), and open up a segment, as it were, which I shall call, Wombat's Rambling by Request. Here's how it works. If there's anything at all you would like to see here, a question answered, a topic in need of my particular brand of pointification, a matter to be explained, or any form of writing prompt, just drop it in the comments for my most recent blog entry with a prefix to the effect that its being submitted for WRR(WRBR?). I'll take the ones I like and copy them to a list on my computer. Then, the next time I'm bloging and can't think of anything to write, I'll pop open the list and break one out. Hopefully, with this I'll be able to post something once a day.
It should be noted that the answers to my questions, my explainations, my advice, and my pointifications may at some times drift away from that which you may find to be true in your travels in actual reality. It is thus that I must give this disclaimer, in the tradition of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: This blog is definitive. Reality is a frequent innacurate.
All that having been said, is there anything you want to know or hear?
