Sorry for the tease.
In my last blog, I said . . .
“An example of something I just learned from one of the biggest American marketing machines tomorrow.”
And then . . .nothing.
I received thousands of emails from concerned readers all wondering if I had been kidnapped by Bruce Cohen’s family or if I had caught the same illness that
affected Michael Crawford when he signed on to do Dance of The Vampires.
I am happy to report that I am fine. (You can stop sending the thousand emails a day now, Mom.)
Here’s what happened. I wrote the follow up to that blog that same night and thought I was really cool when I figured out how to automatically post it the next
morning since I was going to be traveling all day.
And, as you know . . . it didn’t work.
Sorry for that mishap. I’m re-writing the blog now and it will be up later. Hopefully this version will turn out better anyway. I had to rewrite my high school graduation address in 1990 when my Commodore 64 crashed, and that worked out OK.
Rewrites generally do.
So the next time that you lose a paper, an email, a version of a script, or a well constructed and almost award winning and publishable blog entry (ok, I’m
exaggerating), take it as a reminder that the key to writing is rewriting.
Sure you can bang your head against the wall and take TypePad’s name in vain . . . or you can just sit back down, stop bitching and make the next one even better.
Or you can use your situation as inspiration to write something brand spanking new.
Like I just did. Wait a minute. I didn’t mean to do that. That wasn’t my intention when I started this entry. Dang it!
The follow- up coming soon. And I mean it this time.
