Blog Rules




I wake up in a flash not yet aware that there’s a storm rolling in. I check the time: not yet four in the morning. I fumble for reading glasses on the nightstand. In the dark, with eyes still closed behind lenses, I start. To blog.


Out of wreckless slumber, with an affirmative crack of thunder, words start flowing, leaking onto the pillow, arcing in fully formed, yet unintelligible sentences. Rain slams against the window. Damn, has it come to this? Beyond reason, beyond obsession, it occurs to me, as in a dream (or more accurately, as in a novel I’ve read) this thrashing of inspiration on a dark, stormy morning is derivative.


And so with apologies to Chuck Palahniuk, a writer I admire, I offer you my brain-fevered and sweat-logged post for the day:


The Rules of Blog Club

The first rule of Blog Club is: you do not talk about Blog Club.


The second rule of Blog Club is: you DO NOT blog about Blog Club.


Third rule: If someone yells stop, or taps out of comments, STOP. The post is over.


Fourth rule: one blogger to a post.


Fifth rule: one post at a time


Sixth rule: posts are bare knuckle to keyboard. No caffeine. No alcohol. No sharp objects.


Seventh rule: Blogs will go on as long as they have to.


Eighth and final rule: if this is your first time at Blog Club, you have to post.

To further bastardize the words of C.P. “Let’s say never be complete, let’s say stop being perfect, let’s say let... let’s evolve, let the posts fall where they may.”


And to that I say, Hit Post.”
