So… I’ve been using the WordPress app a great deal for my late night posts for numerous reasons. The primary one being that I’ve been working many late nights and there comes a point where I need to plug my laptop in to charge and physically walk away from work.
When I do that, I pick up the phone, open the app and begin to write for me.
Here’s the thing, about 50% of the time my posts don’t post from the app.
Tonight, I ran through a few tutorials, I watched a few YouTube videos. I seriously can’t figure out why this sometimes happens.
I’m wondering if I’m just too tired to notice I’m doing something wrong?
Perhaps my phone is the home of an jokester spirit? A trickster waiting and laughing at my frustration?
I would like to solve this before my upcoming vacation.
I write and I write and I write
Your pages don’t turn but I fill them nonetheless
With words that I hear first in my mind
and then flow onto the page that is not paper
They are by me and for me
But I share them with you on each passing day
I need you to share them with the world
I need to push publish and fulfill this commitment to myself
Why do you torment me so with your pending pending pending
In this world of instant gratification, pending is a special kind of pain
An unfulfilled sentiment
A waiting waiting waiting in a world that is no longer patient
In my wordpress blues I realize that I must relearn patience
I recall that it is only myself that I am struggling with
That the machine is as imperfect as me
255 Days to go.
