#The Sunday Blog Share: words fail me… presently!

image21 (2)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.

  1. Thanks Colleen. I love painting and thinking. Some of my best ideas come when I’ve got a paint brush in my hand.
    We’re planning the changes to our bathroom… we’re going to do away with the bath and have just a shower. Fun times!
    Enjoy your painting. 🙂


  2. I’m probably the space cadet as well! Since I learned how to write, I was journaling my thoughts. I’ve always been a daydreamer, and so writing is perfect for me.

    My week has been a bit of a roller coaster with stress, then stress relief. I feel hopeful for new things in my life, and I am looking forward to making positive changes for myself.

    When I’m struggling with writing something, I usually just take a break and come back to the piece later. Sometimes I just need to clear my head and find a change of scenery.

  3. It’s good to have that sense of a new week and a new beginning, isn’t it?
    I like to paint my stress away. Although, sometimes when I look at the finished picture it leaves me even more stressed out. LOL!
    I hope this week is better for you than last week. 🙂


  4. Well, you haven’t seen much of me on here recently, because I’ve been away but, before that, I was in that situation as well. Nothing was quite coming together, I was struggling to get motivated with what I was going to write, everything seemed like draft ideas. Then I had a 3 day break and wham bang, the old brain seems to be open for business again. Here comes that creativity train, I do hope it will stop at my station.

    Happy belated Birthday, by the way. I hope you had a good day and I’ll raise a glass or three to you this week 🙂

  5. Sometimes it does us good to have a break. Even when I’m working on commissions I factor in down time. Because, just looking at a screen and as you say, thinking that your ideas are daft, doesn’t help to inspire.
    I had a lovely birthday and I’ll raise a glass to you as well.
    Good to see you back and I think the ideas are flowing again for you. x:)
