Ghost Blog

That's what it feels like here because if you haven't noticed, it's a ghost town blog around here.  Half of me wonders if it's because the newness of blogging has worn off (like my music, I burn through new indie tunes always looking for my next high.)  Or is my life consumed with my writing, so my blog comes last? 

I think the latter.  Because when I have the time to read other blogs or write for my own, I feel the energy from other writers and I become recharged.  But who has the time?  I don't.  But like that old adage says, you make time for the things you want. (Okay, so I don't know the exact quote or the phrase but you know what I'm talking about.)

Do I want to blog?  Yes, but...I want a sexy body too, yet I don't want to exercise...but I do.  I guess if you want it bad enough you'll do it, right?  So now I find myself asking myself, (why does this feel like an Ace Ventura moment?  Scene 1:  Cliffhanger moment, Action!  Ace says "If you were me, then I'd be you, and I'd use your body to get to the top. You can't stop me no matter who you are!") Anyway, the point being I love my blog and I’m SHOCKED that people still follow my blog, much less comment on it. (Diana and Season, you don’t count you love me so you’re loyal to the end.)

So bear with me the next few months.  My original goal to be querying my book by end Sept/Oct is now null and void.  I suspect I’ll be truly done by the end of the year (I hope, I hope, I hope.) Then I can begin anew.  So until then, you’ll get 1/3 ramblings, 1/3 genius inspiration and 1/3 WTF-ever nonsense.  Either way, I hope you still find me of interest six months from now.

Thanks for those who continue to seek me out and YEAH to those newbies who click “yes” to the follow button (they are so few these days.) I’ll be here for a while, continuing to document my journey; from squirrel to lion.

  1. You're definately not alone on the notion of time scarcity.

  2. I'm still reading. There's no rule that says you have to blog on a regular basis. In fact I think it was right here on this very blog that you wrote about not following blog rules and not apologizing for it.

    So there. Blog or don't. We'll be here when you have something to say.

    Sometimes you just don't. Who cares?

  3. Six months ago...or six months from now...doesn't matter. I'll always be buzzing around, like a gnat that's driving you crazy!! :)

  4. Aw shucks! You boys are awfully sweet to swing by.

    Mohamed - I'm glad to know I'm not alone in the scrounging for time or these days.

    Dang it Matt, you're right! I should not apologize for rules I don't tend to follow to begin with. Thanks for reminding me.

    DL - Glad I can draw out the insects. *giggles And your definitely not bugging me.
