I know I’ve been ignoring my blog but not on purpose. I love my blog! I wish I could write on it every single day. I especially love it since Tammy did the new design on it.
Besides not being inspired to write on the blog and just being too darned busy doing other things, well, the old blog sits idle and I feel horrible.
I am writing my morning pages, working on my creative nonfiction piece and dabbling with my novel in progress, I just can’t find the energy to sit and blog. Or, when I do have an idea to blog about, by the time I sit down to do it the “fire” is gone and I think, “Oh who cares anyway.”
The creative nonfiction piece and the novel in progress? They don’t even get the attention I want to give them. I only write on those two things during my writing group time; once a week for three hours and that is just not enough. I swear, I don’t know how successful writers do it; work a full time job, have a family, other commitments and they still find time to write and complete novels?! How do they do it? They must not sleep.
Plus, I’ve been reading a lot. I mean ridiculous-obsessive-a-lot. Escape-a-lot. I have so many books I could write reviews about it’s not even funny but I can’t even manage a simple book review for the blog. And when I do have any free time I find myself wandering around the house doing nothing much of anything, keeping myself occupied with petty little stuff when I could be sitting down to write. Gah, what is wrong with me? Oh well. I’m just typing out loud here.
Like right now, instead of being on here ranting about not having time to write, I could be writing. Heh.
Besides, do people still blog anyway? If so, what blogs do you read?
