Meh


So … I didn’t post today.  I mean, technically I am posting today, but I didn’t post ahead of time.  I simply didn’t have anything to say.  And I still don’t.

I sort of feel weird when I don’t post every weekday, but it’s not easy.  My wife manages one every single day, but she’s cheated and done a lot of quizzes and odd things like that months ahead of time so she can forget about blogging on the weekend unless something of import takes place.  For me, I don’t get enough traffic to worry over blogging weekends, and most of my regular readers/commenters don’t do their thing over the weekend.  But just lately, I’ve been considering making Friday part of that quiet time too, because honestly, Fridays are pretty slow unless I really hit on something good to say.

Which isn’t what’s happening here today.

No, I’m doing this to keep from being blanked today, but I have to adjust my thinking.  I have to be willing to post only when I have something I can entertain you with.  And I’d love to tell you I’ve been writing instead, but that’s not true.  I’ve been talking about writing, but haven’t really done anything since I finished my short story earlier this week.  So now I’m sort of sitting in front of the keyboard and letting things flow out of my head to have the post done, and not be skunked.

I don’t suppose I’ll get any comments and that’s to be expected.  It’s late on a Friday night and most of you have lives and things to do.  So consider this a happy weekend wish from me when you do see it, and I’ll try and have something more on Monday.

God bless, and be safe.

  1. When you can’t think of anything to blog about, just do what I do, think about breasts. From there, it all just flows out.

    I don’t wait until I have nothing to blog about to think about breasts. It just … happens.

  2. Oh wait, I remember. It’s all cuz of your wife. She got breasts on my brain.

    Her breasts are on my brain most of the time.

  3. ::hugs:: I am missing writing! I understand exactly how you feel. You want to write, you feel the urge to say “something”, but it is not translating from your brain to your fingers!

    Well, you’ve got the excuse of political activism on your side. I’m just being lazy. 🙂

    Life sucks the creativity from your fingers sometimes! But…I am your biggest fan…well, outside Nessa!

    Aw, thanks hon. I’m a big fan of YOURS, too!

    I know it is there. I believe in you!

    And we believe in you too! GO YOU! 🙂

  4. It’s going around. Maybe what you need to do is just let yourself do NOTHING for a few days. I know, you’re going to say you do that most days anyway, knowing you. But I mean nothing without guilt over jobs or writing or anything else. Maybe that will help fuel the creative fire. I am right there with you, and I am going to try this too. I am finding it ridiculous that I am feeling anxious over blogging/writing, and I need to nip this one in the bud.

    Yeah, I’ve tried that doing nothing. What I need to do is sit my considerable backside in the chair and just beat the frickin’ keyboard. 😉 But if you think a break would do you good, take one! We’ll all eagerly await the wonders that come when you’re back and writing again. 🙂

  5. Well, I for one was so worried about you I had an email ready to go to ask where you were and if you were all right. Hey, it’s all right to have a real life in lieu of blogging. OMG did I say that?

    I wish real life were the issue sweetie, but no … nothing’s wrong. 🙂 Just … didn’t have much to say.

  6. You’re allowed a couple of “meh” days. You encourage me not to feel like I have to post, and you can take you own advice. I must admit, though, that the inner crooks of my elbows started to itch when your post wasn’t in my reader this morning.

    LOL! Thank you hon. I miss when you don’t post too. But I have to admit, it was tempting to just let it go today. Alas, I’m far too big a blog slut to do that, and so, here we are. 🙂

  7. I try hard to post Monday-Saturday and a Fail on Sunday, but sometimes I just don’t have anything to say. Today is one of those days for me too. Maybe it *is* going around.

    I think autumn sets in quick and folks get to feeling a little lazier, less … I dunno. Energetic? *Shrug*

  8. If it’s any consolation, I haven’t been READING (let alone commenting) on enough of a daily schedule. 🙂

    Shortly after I started Running After My Hat — the blog, not the activity — I decided I was going to post 7 days a week, sometimes more often if some little tidbit came my way which didn’t actually require, y’know, writing. That served as my daily writing routine until something better (or at least more appealing to my would-be writer’s soul) came along: the WIP. I’ve backed way off on the blog — and, for that matter, on commenting elsewhere — as that’s taken over my head.

    It may be, and yes I know this is a radical thought, but it may be that your silence here signals something inside your head, telling you: Y’know, bucko, you REALLY need to be writing something ELSE. Isn’t it about time to clear the deck?

    I know, I know. I haven’t been coming around here long enough to presume to read your mind — let alone your subconscious mind.

    Still…

    Well, as blog topics become more and more challenging, I suppose looking elsewhere for gratification is natural and something I should at least consider. Still, there’s the fear that, once I start writing, there won’t be anything else of interest to share, and I’ll lose the folks in my readership who are kind enough to be here when I talk about NON-writerly things. And that’d be sad. So … maybe it’s time for that topic jar I keep threatening to make. 😉

  9. You are interesting even when you don’t say much, lol. I’m glad you posted, it would seem odd if you didn’t. 😉

    Well, thanks, Jaymie. Time enough for reduced posting when I find work, I suppose. For now, I have to dig topics up, but I’m glad you like them. 🙂

Hey, what's up? Tell me whatcha think!
