If blogging really is like television, then most of you, dear readeres, would be fiddling with the antenna or calling your cable company trying to get a better signal. Or maybe, you’d just change the channel….
The last few days have been incredibly busy with writing an article (and starting a second one), applying for jobs, and grading papers all requiring serious attention and energy, which has left me feeling like I’m neglecting my blog. I know these other things are more important in the long run, but I do feel a sense of frustration when I’m not writing regularly to the chutry experiment. I know the frustration has something to do with feeling conscious of time rushing past and being unable to unpack an idea or even to review a film (not that I’ve had time to see very many). It may be that my consciousness of time via blogging–my attempt to impose a coherent narrative over something that is decidedly chaotic and random–is at odds with my current experience of things. Or maybe I’m just really tired.
