The Sunday Blog Share is a great, fun way to share blog posts. It’s organised by Suzie, who can be found tweeting at @Suzie81Blog. If you want to join in click here, for the details.
I’ve had a funny week and there’s rather a lot of this going on, at the moment.
Know the feeling?
Some folk call it writer’s block. I call it I need a kick up my arse! Yes, I said arse, on a Sunday!
What is wrong? I don’t know, but I lack concentration and energy. Maybe I died in the night? No… there’s a faint pulse.
So, in order to kick start my creativity, I’ve found this.
I suspect I’m the space cadet. In deep space, with my dreams. I have amazing ideas; don’t we all? But, I jot them down and suddenly… they’re not so amazing!
I can be the angry woman – not so young : but angry, all the same.
I’m definitely in danger of becoming the weird recluse.[I think I may already be there.] My hubby gently coaxes me out of my cave and encourages me to take part in this thing called life.
I can be business like when required; although whether I could be described as a ray of sunshine… well that is for the reader to decide.
I don’t see myself as a bitter failure, though. Even when the blank computer screen taunts me and the words become jumbled up in my aching and noisy head; I’m not a failure. We all have our bad days/weeks/months/years.
I’ve just had a pain in the arse of a week. My head has been extra specially painful and what I have managed to scribble down, leaves a lot to be desired. Somewhere in amongst all of this mess and mayhem, I turned 55. My birthday present to myself is to get on with it … you idiot!
So, today is a new start. This post may not be the most amazing; but it certainly beats nothing.
Finally, before I clear off to procrastinate some more [Hamlet has got nothing on me!] here’s some advice on how to be a boring , bad writer.
At some point I will find my mojo, when I can remember where I left it. Oh there it is… it needs a bit of an iron. Oh dear god, I hate ironing.
How about you?
- What sort of a week have you had?
- What kind of a writer are you?
- How do you get going, when the going has gone?
Thanks for dropping by and thanks again to Susie.
Have a great Sunday.
Until the next time.
