There are writers and there are writers. Some get paid and some don't. Some are good and some are not. Don't believe for a minute that all good writers get paid and those who are not good don't. You don't have to have a Ph.D. in English literature to figure that out.
Lately it's been harder and harder for me to write. With the exception of non-sequitirs, I haven't had much to offer. Not even the usual drek many of you have stopped by to read, and for the unfortunate few who are fans, expect to find.
I don't have the Great American novel to write. I don't even have the Lesser Antillies novel to write. It's nothing I aspire to do. I haven't had much inspiration, either.
I'm stuck in Molasses. Dead in the water. Becalmed. Awash in inertia. The well appears to be dry. Now, I just used up my last cliche.
I think I need a homework assignment in writing. From you. Please give me a suggestion.
Finally, please tell me about a chapter in a book you'll never write.
My example: Exciting Mathematics Teachers I have had.
