Arguing With Myself

Mood: Stabby (Ask Jen Lancaster...it's a mood!)

On the Interwebz radio: Romeo and Juliet (Dire Straits version...from Empire Records - but today is so NOT my personal Rex Manning Day - if you don't get the reference, watch the movie. Seriously.)

*Hangs head in blogger shame*

I have been neglectful of my poor little blog. *Pats blog on head* I knew it had been a while since I blogged but I didn't think it had been over a month! Most writers I know blog almost obsessively. They wax witty and poetic on life, on writing, on their children and their pets. While I? Am doing what? Nothing! Well, not nothing obviously...I mean, I'm breathing and possibly playing Frontierville on Facebook, or eating ice cream...

<---- FYI: This? May or may not be what I look like when ice cream is involved.

...but obviously I've not been doing anything so spectacular that I've been kept from blogging. Because if I had been doing that awesome stuff? I totally would have been blogging about it.

So, let's take a small look inside my blogging mind:

Me: I totally need to put up a blog post. It's been like for-ever!
Myself: But I don't have anything interesting to blog about.
Me: So. Blog about writing.
Myself: I don't wanna blog about my writing. My writing sucks. I'm going to run away and join the circus!
Me: Well blog about that then.
Myself: Puh-leeze. Like anyone is going to believe someone with my bad balance and fat arse is going to join the circus.
Me: You could be a clown.
Myself: Shut.up.! I would not join the circus unless I could wear a super cute outfit and a sparkly tiara - like maybe the trapeeze.
Me: You're afraid of heights so the trapeeze thing? Is probably not the best option.
Myself: FINE!
Me: So? What are we going to blog about?
Myself: WE? We are not blogging about anything. This was your stupid idea, I'm going to get some ice cream.
Me: Ice cream? I want some too!!


So, yeah, kind of scary in there isn't it? And we didn't even get close to the crap I keep hiding behind High School Algebra.

Anyway, I'm going to try to stop by here more often because really? After a month you would not believe the dust and spiderwebs that accumulate around here! :)



  1. I don't blog very often. I used to have a blog about my family which I posted on regularly and then pretty much abandoned when I started writing. I was amazed to see so many people of Facebook calling for it's return the other day! LOL But blog posts take time, I usually spend an hour (sometimes more) on them and it's time away from writing on my wip.

    Nevertheless, I'm going to attempt to blog more-- on both my writing AND family blog.

  2. Glad to see you back, Rhonda! I think on the whole the blogosphere slows waaay down in the summer and it's cricket-chirp quiet for those of us who do try to post with some regularity. Sigh.

  3. Denise: I saw that people were really encouraging you to get back to your blogging and I have to say that I agree with them! Although I totally understand the time issue...if you've got an hour to write then naturally you'd rather spend it on your wip than blogging. :)

    Laurel: I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets lazy about blogging in the summer but I'm definitely going to try to be a bit more consistent in the future. :)


I love comments. They're like cake without the carbs.
