I've Lost That Writing Feeling

In the past month I've written just two posts. Lame. The left side of my brain has spent so much time geeking out on PHP, MySql, and Yii that the right side of my brain has gone to sleep out of boredom. Constantly reading and writing stuff like this:

while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($sql)) { //
$attr_desc = $row["attr_desc"];
$sub $attr_desc . "[]"
switch ($row["attr_ctrl"]) {
case "D":
 echo ("<select name=" . $sub . ">")

blah, blah, blah – kills any chance of writing stuff like Crimsom Tide or  I Had a Plan.

In a desperate effort to resume blogging, I've just signed up for the BlogHer's November NaBloPoMo. I am not a her, but since two-thirds of my dwindling readers are female I guess I'm okay. And I have no idea what the hell NaBloPoMo means except that to participate I have to write everyday. I fully acknowledge that today's post is a rather feeble effort, but a man has to start somewhere.


  1. We will all have lots of great stuff to read! I guess I'll have to put the books away until Dec. 1. Glad you're back! And that stuff up there ZZZZZZZZZ.......

  2. Remember your navy posts are like gold. Most of us haven't a clue what that life was like and will probably find much of it interesting and exotic.

  3. You are a gifted writer and maybe this exercise will stretch your creative muscles. I look forward to reading the results.

  4. Oh, that's great that you're doing this, too! I love your posts, so it's going to be a fun month!

  5. I have no idea what you do (I assume it is some computer talk). It scares me. Maybe I'm scared because it's probably computer talk and I have no idea what you do. I'm doomed in the digital world. Just turn off Mr. Left and I bet Mr. Right will come out with a little coaxing.

  6. Yay for BloHims! :) All that digital speak made my mind gloss over, but I wish I could write code! Hope the challenge helps!

  7. You got this! It will be a challenge for me too since I don't usually post everyday!

  8. If I can do this, you surely can. It isn't bad and you will do fine! Besides who doesn't like a challenge!
