Yesterday I sat down to type up a couple papers (public personnel reform and organizational development) and nothing came out. Okay, not nothing, but only a paragraph on each. This was very disappointing to me, since I need to get in the frame of mind to write in less than a month. Needless to say, I was a bit anxious last night and couldn’t fall asleep – like that’s going to help! However, today is a new day, and I need to learn to get myself into the frame of mind to write on demand. I know the stuff, but I need to not be so critical as to using the exact words so everything flows together wonderfully – it does not need to be perfect, it just needs to be done. This is the part that I have a hard time getting through to myself. It took and hour for my two paragraphs yesterday – and that is not going to cut it next month. Practice, practice, practice. I need to force myself to sit and write, even when I am not in the writing mode. I will do it, I just wish it wasn’t so painful!
On other things – the campaign is still chugging along. Clinton won NH and NV, and Obama came in second. However, the interesting thing about the democratic primaries is that the delegates are awarded through proportional representation, so winning a state does not give you all its delegates (the winner-take-all-system). So while Clinton won in NV, Obama earned one more delegate, which is being contested by Clinton. We’ll see how it works out.
Next weekend is the Democratic SC primary. It will be an interesting race giving the demographic make up of the party and voters in that state.
Okay – enough goofing off for now – must force my self to write things of substance… here I go!
