Sonic Youth - The Empty Page



Ever had that keen desire to write--& yet you can't find the "stuff" inside your noggin that lets your words pour forth? Ain't nuthin' worse than being dumb. I need to begin writing my book of Victorian Mythos fiction, & yet every paragraph I begin becomes a false start. "No, that ain't right; that isn't it." But I do not despair, I have hope that language will win out. It isn't a matter of choice for this old thing, because I am one of those people who needs to write. So, I'm gonna sit here and look at that empty page until the words spill forth...because they will, they must...

    Borrowing a bit from what I posted in the S. T. Joshi Enthusiasts group on Facebook...

    The next worst thing to you having a blank page, is being one of your devoted readers, waiting for your next published piece; to satisfy our need, nay, addiction, for more from your dream-inspired visions, made corporeal by the actions of your fingers on a ubiquitous keyboard!

    Needing a Pugmire fix today, I had to find something I was missing from my Wilum H. Pugmire shelves in my library!

    So off to Amazon dot com I went, and the first thing I added to my virtual shopping cart was "Encounters with Enoch Coffin by W. H. Pugmire," https://cthulhuwho1.files.wordpress.com/2016/12/dream-quest-part-1-by-graham-plowman.jpg https://www.amazon.com/Encounters-Enoch-Coffin-W-Pugmire/dp/1626411581 (I don't know how I had failed to purchase this earlier), and then I did a "pre-order" of the upcoming magazine, "Inhuman #6," https://www.amazon.com/Inhuman-6-Wilum-H-Pugmire/dp/1613471122 (which Amazon has wonderfully listed as "by Wilum H. Pugmire"); so I'll have my current Pugmire addiction assuaged in two days, and my January 2017 Pugmire needs slightly mollified by your inclusion in Inhuman #6 (even if I'm saddened by your name being absent from the front cover!).

    Thank You Dear Wilum, for sharing yourself with all of us!
