If I can't think of a discussion is it because I have nothing to say or because I want to actually have something to say before making a discussion?

In the past few weeks I have 'abandoned' more discussions that I started to write than I have actually posted. Been trying to 'tone down' the negativity a bit, but I am not really sure why. I've found myself getting several sentences in to writing one, and then just deleting the whole thing. Maybe I need to go rob a bank or something so I'll have a really interesting subject to talk about. Ah well... *raises coughee cup* SALUTE!!! G'mornin' myLotters...here we go again...

He he.. At least you are still posting. Each day I thought about starting discussion and then end up only responding others.

You have a way with words. I am sure that you'll find something to write about. Wait an hour and maybe Scar will come up with something good.

Good morning JJ. I have wrote almost nothing this month, I am not in the mood, it seems I have nothing interesting to say. Well, the important is to be around and have fun.

Luckily I have plenty of potential subjects at the moment. Maybe go chasing plagiarists for a while then write about your successes.

Negativity just breeds negativity and it can manifest itself in our physical health. I have done the same thing from time to time. Write a few lines, or even entire posts, and then delete them.

I do that as well. I think I have a good topic and start writing a discussion, and I do end up deleting it as I didn't have as much to say as I thought I have. Most of the time, I will think of something first, before I start one, so that way I will be able to post what I wanted to post. I don't start all that many anyway, as I guess my life has been boring lately. I susually start discussions abut my life, and I might have to stop that, and come up with something else. Oh well, een if I dont' I will still be here to comment back to others.

Sometimes I want to write about strange connections I've made in my head. Then I worry that such a post might confirm that I'm nuts. Or I just forget what I was going to say.

Just another day . . . just another post . . . just another cup of coughee . . . hmmmm, maybe I should just delete this comment .
