A selection of words I considered starting this post with:

I decided that not one of them was good enough. They all seem to try to pluck at strings that I’ve already broken through misuse and ‘miliarity.

And I guess that’s what writer’s constipation is all about – the feeling that whatever I’m going to write will be the same as what I’ve already written and therefore won’t be good enough.

You know what I’m going to do next? Just to prove that I … something or other, I’m going to take those rejected lines as prompts for the next six posts. And I’m going to finish them all within an hour. Just you watch.

Edit: took me six hours, but I got there. The proof is in the links above. My … system has been cleansed.
