The One in Which I Ramble Incoherently

Did you watch Friends? Of course you did. Even if you say you didn't, you probably did. Nielsons don't lie. In any case, my favorite thing about Friends was that the titles were always "The One Where..." I love that. That's how we all talk about it anyway, right? The one where Joey does something stupid and Rachel and Ross are angsty! Or something.

My car is broken again. My car is nearly always broken. I'd make a list of all things that have been wrong with my car since I got duped into buying it from a major area dealership which seemed all reputable, but turned out to be agents of Satan, except I would find it utterly depressing. Here is my advice to you - Ford Windstars suck. I've never called out a brand like that here before, but alas, I can no longer stand it. I love the idea of my car, but the actualness of my car and its constant state of nearly running, but not well and oh look, my window won't go down - AGAIN is killing me. In any case, it seems to be the transmission this time, which is ridiculously important. And, in my experience, expensive. So, all that stuff I said about my dryer before I fixed it myself - apply that here, because I can't even begin to fix a transmission. I was just early, was all.

I've been doing a lot of crafting - like more than normal and everything, but it's all for gifts, so you're going to have to hold your horses. I can't post anything yet. It's all very exciting, though, I promise.

On an only semi-related note (but let's face it - that's better than most of the transitions you're going to get out of me today) the reviews on microfiction were completely mixed. I mean, no one hated it (which is nice for my ego) but not everyone wants it. Here's the thing, though: I really enjoyed doing it. So... I haven't decided what to do about it, yet. I might post it on weekends, so it would be sort of "in addition" to what I do now. Which would be more compelling if I actually posted M-F, as my plan. Or, I could ignore the naysayers and do what I want. Oooorrrrr. I could use it to fill in the gaps when I don't have anything interesting to say. Or I could start a microfiction blog where I fail to post at least as often as I fail to post here. I don't know.

Also, I have something really exciting I wanted to post about today, but I forgot my camera and there is photographic evidence, so you'll have to wait for that, too. I am an endless font of nothingness today.

So, in order to somewhat justify the existence of this complete and utter lack of pixels, I pose a question. I've been having issues with wanting to write and having time to write and having seemingly nothing to write about. It has been brought to my attention that what I need is a plan. A plan of what to post and then I can ditch said plan when I do have something to talk about, but when I don't, I can follow the plan. The plan shall be the savior of empty-headedness. And I think that sounds solid. Makes sense. Follows logical pathways. Very Spockian. On the other hand, I'm not sure I'm really a planning kind of gal. Which leads me to the question. Do you plan what you're going to write? And if so, do you do a monthly plan, a weekly plan? An ongoing list of topics from which to pick? Just curious how everyone else is doing it.

Every time I make a plan (like writing about music once a week or sticking to the Friday 5 thing) I don't follow it. So I just ramble when I want to (or go on and on and on about certain current events). I guess that doesn't help! But anyway, I love whatever you post, so I say do what you want.
And I hope your car gets better!
