The trouble with blogging

The trouble with writing a regular blog - when you're a writer - is that when something funny happens, or something happens that makes you think, you're in danger of writing about it on your blog. What you should be doing is saving it in your writer's notebook for later use in a book, not 'wasting' it on your blog. Here's an example...

Last night, as I was dropping off to sleep I was running through the events of the day in my head, and there was something I regretted doing, and I said to Dave - who was dropping off to sleep beside me - "I'm sorry, Dave."

And he said to me "It's all right."

And we went to sleep.

This morning, I remembered apologising to him but I couldn't remember what for. And I thought - Hang on, he didn't ask me why I was saying sorry, he just said "It's all right."

Why didn't he say "What for?" or even better "There's nothing to be sorry for."
