On Writing and Redundancy

One of my concerns as a writer is that I am duplicating myself.

After I have written something, I get a feeling that I have written about it before. 

I’ll try not to.

I’m sure every first time writer berates himself because of the stuff he left out in their book. 

I am no different.

To frustrate the “Grim Reaper” who is still reaping, I just had an immunity shot.

Who’s winning this epidemic? I remember Abbott of Abbott & Costello (of the prize-winning comedy show) and his “Who’s on First” routine.

That and Everyone’s Got Talent were a few of my favorite shows. Betty and I laughed ourselves “sick.”

These are not funny days. 

Everyone I know asks the same question: When will it end?

An unanswerable question. 

All we can do is stay the course and hopefully ride it out.

Everything has a beginning and end.

This epidemic is no exception.
