ADHD and Frustration

I’ll admit this is really a bit of a rip-off. It was inspired by Hugh Hollowell’s piece on the shame that accompanies living with ADHD. In fact, the title is a slight reworking of the one he chose for his article. I’m stealing from him for two reasons: 1) he lets me and 2) while his […]

I Was Wrong

Wednesday, I wrote a post titled “An Open Letter To All The Pastors I Know” that offended some people. Before I say anything else, I want to apologize to anyone I may have insulted. Here’s the thing: that was not the post I intended to write. The original idea was to write about the difficulties people […]

Community At The Goose

Well, another Wild Goose festival is in the books and, as much as I enjoyed it, I’m glad to be home. Well, sort of; today is shaping up to be a classic Monday. Last week, the kitchen electrical circuit in my house went out. Now, in most homes, this isn’t a big deal. But, I […]

I Still Have Questions

It is becoming a tradition for me to write a witty blog post about aging on my birthday. Last year, I imparted some of the wisdom I’ve accrued in my life. The year before…, well, the year before I didn’t do a witty blog post. Okay, so it’s not really a tradition yet, but I’m […]

One of Those Days

For the life of me, I cannot find a topic that I care enough to write about this morning. Like a lot of bloggers, I keep a trove of topics, quotes, ideas, etc. specifically for times like this, but most of them don’t hold much allure right now. And, with all that’s going on in the […]

I’m Resolving Not to Make Any Resolutions

Well, it’s 2014 and that means my news feed will be full of social media posts wishing me a Happy New Year, recapping of the year past and, of course, laying out New Year’s resolutions. I won’t be posting any of the above, however. Because: I can’t seem to write a Happy New Year status […]

Marketing Sucks

Recently, I posted an entry about Veterans Day. Almost immediately afterwards, I noticed several other people had written about the same topic. After reading all of them, I decided that mine was the best I’d seen. And, then I got pissed. I got pissed because I felt my concept was better, my writing was better, […]

Saint? More Like an Ain’t

FYI, the first two paragraphs of this post have absolutely nothing to do with the actual subject. Lately, I’ve struggled here at But Not Yet. Topics have been hard to come by, the words have flowed haltingly (if it at all) and the numbers have sucked. Basically, I was burning out. Last week, I even […]

I’m Probably Doing it Wrong

Everything I’ve ever read about blogging and increasing your readership says that you should engage with your audience by responding to comments about whatever it is you’ve written. Unfortunately, I suck at that. You see, when I write something, I’ve generally said all I have to say on the subject and I’m ready to move […]
