I know that some people are able to sit down at the keyboard, do a stream-of-consciousness dump, and get something that is not only coherent but funny too.
I can't do that.
If I have a subject in hand, my biggest problem is to hold the post to a reasonable size (and to hold the number of parenthetical phrases to a minimum). Ah, but the subjects. They are the *gold* for me, and I am not all that good at inventing them. And I am not comfortable unless I have a long list of potential post subjects "in the bank".
In point of fact, blogging here on Eolian is a team task. An example: A couple of nights ago - it was one of those cold, rainy Seattle nights which cries for comfort food - we were sitting on an old leather couch at the Hales brewpub in Ballard drinking a pint and eating meat loaf sandwiches. And I mentioned that my post subject bank was running very low. Jane immediately spun off 20 new topics!
Including this one.
