See, when I first started this blog in early 2014 the word “indistractable” brought up only a few Google hits, assuring me of its relative originality but disabusing me of any true clams on the word (“get your clams off me!”). That was unlikely anyway – nothing much is truly new under planet Neologism’s sun. But now there’s a book entitled Indistractable, which would explain a surge of random (not fandom) hits the past year here.
Yeah, it deals with ADHD. And though I may harbour a few ADD dinghies myself, the reason why I called my blog Indistractable was because it was just a neat word I hoped I’d coined and I’m not, I’m very. Neat? Nah, distractable.
Meanwhile, “Corvid-19” is nothing to crow about and brings up nearly two million hits, several articles in respectable web-roosts, but typo or no (see here for an example from the Read Dear Advocate) it’s hardly murderous error and no pandemonium has ensued.
And what’s a writer/editor to do in this viral hunkerdown but work on while others work on their works in progress. Stay safe everyone, grow herbs in your window and watch the (non-corvid) starlings search the peeps of grass for signs of spring while snow falls softly around their feathered…
Oh, I seem to have gotten distracted. Back to work…
Hope you’re well, Lee. Actually dreamt about you last night!
Doing great, Rick. Hope you are, too. Now what was I up to in that dream…
