…after the tone.
I am unable to come to the phone right now, please leave a message…
There are no more posts in the queue, but there are quite a few in “draft” status, unready to be published. I read and edit the drafts every day, but remain unsure of when they may actually be ready for publication.
It is as if I know what I want to say and have practiced it in my mind; it sounds good there. Then I read the same thoughts on the monitor and they don’t read the same, it is like hanging up the phone after leaving a garbled message with a series of “Ums” and pauses thinking to yourself, “I wish I could do that over again.”
By saving draft after draft without publication, I avoid that feeling of embarrassment. Unfortunately, no one gets my message either.
