lizardek's obiter dictum lizardek Home Now Then Friends Info Ek Family
zird is the word [userpic]
A whole week goes by, not even in a flash, and I think about writing but I don't. I read a book, and then another, and I nap, or play a computer game or clean or run errands. I cleaned the fish tank and bought fish. I picked up the kids from the swimming pool. I bought new late-summer flowers for the pots and dead-headed the baby roses. I even went for a couple of walks and I updated my books-to-buy list and my library inventory and I talked to my mom and wrote emails and went to sushi night, but I didn't come home and write about it. It's all in there somewhere. But it's not trying to get out.

Joy here

You are my role model. ;-) I am glad you had such a full week! Me? Well, I had a good week too, kind of boring, kind of exhilarating. Does that make sense? HA Well, it involved getting help and finding out I have a mustard seed worth of hope. Yipee! (Maybe you remember how bad my first semester in Grad school was this year... STILL ongoing... but have help!)

I really need to create another blog! Been meaning to... also want to do a photo blog!

Re: Joy here

Makes total sense. I would like a week like that. I just seem to be mooching along.

Re: Joy here

Mooching along, as in going through the motions or too much to do, and need to relax?

One thing about blogging (and internet, only more so) is it is soooo time-consuming. You sit down for five minutes all suddenly it's been an hour. Maybe you're needing to just be instead of write about it? It'll come when you're ready. :)

Are you still on vacation? Maybe you're on vacation from your blog? Maybe you have been more or less out and haven't really gotten back in the habit? You know we're all here, though, right. Baited breath and all that

Not on vacation, more's the pity. Been back at work since we returned from the States 2 weeks ago. Just not settled down mentally, I guess. :)

For me it is habit. When I did that awful June write every day thing, it started with me staring at a blank screen. For a long time. By the end of the month, I was paying attention to my days differently, keeping a story in my head for later. Not always a good story, mind you, but a story none the less. I was so happy when July happened and the pressure was off. But now, I have that blank screen thing happening again. I am also tired and distracted, which doesn't help. So. There is your excuse. Right? I am just so glad you're back. Even if you write one sentence that is good enough for me. I love your words! xo

Re: From Megsie

You're's totally habit. And it's so easy to get out of, when I'm on vacation and don't have an internet connection. It's REALLY hard to get started again.

Re: From Megsie

I totally agree with Megsie. After vacation I got so wrapped up in the idea of "backdating" a billion entries to catch everyone up to what I was doing that the act of blogging became overwhelming. So I just didn't bother.
Now I miss it, and I'm just plunging back in when I have time, and it's fun again! You'll find your groove!
p.s. Barky misses you

That's okay. What you list here is lovely! You're living your life and the page is always there when you're *ready*. It comes.

That's the best thing about's always there waiting for you when you're ready to come back to it :)
