I have cheated on many a girlfriend in my day, and i can say that sometimes I have little to no guilt about committing such an act..this was in the past of course. But man let me tell you, cheating on my "writing" is an extremely difficult thing. I have been trying to write this article about my dad, my son and I going to the baseball game for about 3 days and it is not happening for whatever reason. If I don't sit down and hammer this article out soon, it isn't going to happen. Thursday is the NBA draft, and I plan to do a minute by minute blog on that, so I know I have no choice but to be focused for that one. But this article is not flowing like I'd want it to, and it is frustrating the hell out of me. Not to be all dramatic about this, but when I write I need to be in a relative safe space. When i wrote those NBA articles I was in a safe space, I controlled the variables, and I was able to just sit down and flow like Nas over a good beat. When I am not in a good space, i stop and start sentences, or I wrote about 4 or 5 paragraphs that make no damn sense, and there's no fluidity. I need fluidity. Perhaps I can buy some at Wal-Mart today or something.
