Believe it or not this is the third draft of this blog post….
The first two drafts, have successfully been rescued by a police after they stormed in and took them to safety, they are now recovering in a safe place, having been given a blanket a cup of tea and some biscuits, but not before being interviewed about their ordeal.
So I am now at the mercy of this third draft hoping and praying that it too doesn’t want to notify the police that it is being held against its will.
The first article from memory was going to be about that good old standby the ‘List’ article. You know the type
My top 50 ways to combat (insert issue) or 5 ways I have fun in the winter.
All I know was that the cliché count as well as the pun count was high and I am not shocked at it wanting nothing more to do with me.
The second article was the why-oh-why piece about employment (I have written many, many articles on this subject) but yet again I found myself drawn to it. It was trying to workout where the blame lay with regards to employment, was it me? Was it the fault of the DES providers? Was it down to the government? Was it in fact a combination of all three? Why it asked and continues to ask does no employer want to employ me?
It banged on that despite my endless searching, I was getting more rejection emails (the generic kind). They start with Dear (INSERT NAME) thanks for applying for the role of (insert role) but unfortunately blah, blah, blah. The usual. But it ended by asking why there is a high rate of unemployed autistic people?
Anyway now this third draft isn’t being co-operative! I simply cannot get an article out of it, however hard I rack my brain nothing wants to be written on the page!
It’s at times like this that I wish I could text Janine Ripper and get her to come to lunch with me at the Burns Beach Cafe (No Chorizo and Chips and toast for us this time!) and get her valued input. But she’s busy at work. So that dream will take a rain check.
Until next time, when hopefully I will have something worth saying!
Have a great weekend y’all
