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.
