Writers Block?!?

Writers Block

I was looking at NaBloPoMo page where they list prompts for the whole month of November looking for ideas because I really wanted to try and post everyday in November and so far I have managed to do it.  Anyway I saw this prompt and knew I wanted to write about it; Have you ever had extended writers’ block? How long did it last? What did you do to break out of it, and do you have tips for other bloggers?

I remember one time where I had writers block for months and months.  I am not really sure what I did to get over it.  I know that I stopped blogging around the time of my daughters birthday.  I took most of the summer and fall off and start up again I want to say in January.  I know I stopped because I was depressed and just didn’t feel the motivation to blog.

I remember that in January I felt the urge to blog again and I haven’t really stopped since then.  I do have days where the last thing I want to do is blog and I have other days where I want to write something but I can’t think of anything to write.

As for tips that may help other bloggers break out of it the one thing I can say is find something you are passionate about.  I know on days where I am struggling to write if I find a topic that I am excited about I can write a whole post is recorded time.  Where as other days if I am not interested in the post I am writing it can take days to finish the post.

Those are a few of my thoughts on writers block.  How to overcome writers block?

Books, Blogs, Reality

Books, Blogs, Reality by Ryan Ringbloom

Life can suck…
When reality becomes overwhelming, seeking comfort in fictional fantasies keeps hope alive.  And while this escape may be a little delusional, it’s also therapeutic.
Sharing secrets is daunting, but virtual friends don’t often judge and they are always ready to share a glass of wine…or three…while typing out life’s latest endeavors.
Brooke believes obstacles only add to romance, not detract. Rachael longs for a more intense relationship, or so she thinks. Lizzie misses the excitement in her life, but sometimes new situations find you when you’re not even looking. And Jess believes a tiger can change his stripes. It can’t.
Bound by a shared passion for blogging about happily ever afters, these four young women use keyboard therapy to work through their expectations, anxieties, and inadequacies, all with the hopes of achieving the perfection found in romance novels.
Completely blinded by what they think life should be, they navigate their unique paths in search of what they envision is right. But when reality taunts them with persistent curve balls, will they be strong enough to choose wisely? Or will their happy endings escape them?

EXCERPT

It’s not uncommon for people to have two sets of friends. The
“real” friends; these are the ones who live nearby, the ones you see or talk
with occasionally (less and less as time goes on). Then there are the “virtual”
friends; these are the ones you talk to (well, type to) every day. The latter
group comes from all over. You’ve never actually met any of them and yet you
trust them with some of the deepest, most intimate thoughts and details of your
life. You share way too much information and in return, they over-share way too
much back.
On Brooke Bloomfield’s twenty-third birthday, she went to
lunch with her real life best friend, Lauren. The two girls had a very nice
time. They gossiped in between chews, catching up, because even though they
lived only ten minutes away from each other, they still hadn’t seen each other
in quite some time. When the bill came, Lauren grabbed it, insisting she treat
Brooke on her special day. They hugged goodbye at their cars and promised to
meet for lunch or a drink soon.
Later that same night, Brooke let loose and celebrated her
birthday in a much more exciting way, at a computer-generated party with her
three online BF’s, Rachael-XXOO, Lizzie1214, and JessRomance93. In a relatively
short time, all three of these girls had come to know more about Brooke than
anyone else.
Similar tastes in books kept connecting them through book
tours and blitzes. Comments on posts and reviews turned into discussions over
emails. Tweets bounced back and forth between the four of them endlessly, until
one day they discovered a social website designed for readers, where they could
all chat privately amongst themselves. Within no time, their virtual
discussions went from benign topics such as books they all loved, hated and/or
felt somewhere in between, to a hell of a lot more serious things.
It’s funny the things a person will share with people they
don’t actually have to face. Like a diary into which they feed their emotions
and it types back.

ReaderGirlBrooke: Hey guys!
Lizzie1214: Wine is open. Time to celebrate!! The big two-three!
JessRomance93: Hey, birthday girl! I just opened a beer. Does
everyone have a drink now?
Rachael-XXOO: Got mine. Happy Birthday Brookey!!!  Did you get the pic of Preston’s
package all wrapped up in a bow?
ReaderGirlBrooke: Thanks guys. I just poured a glass of red.
Yes, Rachael – great pic! *blushes
Rachael-XXOO: You’re not blushing. You love it. I’m sure you
saved it with all the other dirty pics I send you.
Rachael-XXOO: By the way, did you guys finish Fix My Heart
yet? I’m only 45% in.
ReaderGirlBrooke: Yes!! Loved! Five stars. A guy exactly
like Grant is what I wished for when I blew out my birthday candles today at
lunch.
Lizzie1214: I gave it five stars, too.
JessRomance93: It was good. Meh. Three stars.
ReaderGirlBrooke: Jess, are you serious? Only three stars?
How did you not fall in love with Grant? He was perfect!
JessRomance93: Yeah, Grant was perfect. But a little too
perfect, don’t ya think? Guys like that don’t exist.
ReaderGirlBrooke: Are you just saying that because of you-know-who?
JessRomance93: This has nothing to do with that asshole. I
just thought the way Grant rescued Cassandra was a little over the top.
Rachael-XXOO: Um, hello. What part of “I haven’t finished
yet” did you all not understand? Remember, we don’t discuss a book until
everyone is done reading.
ReaderGirlBrooke: Sorry! We’ll stop. Just make sure to stay
away from my blog until you’re done reading. My review is getting posted
tonight.
Rachael-XXOO: I’m probably reading slower than usual because
my own love life has been picking up lately.
JessRomance93: Nice, Rach! Do we get some dirty details
later?
ReaderGirlBrooke: Wah! The only love life I have lately
requires batteries.
Rachael-XXOO: Yes! I’ll give details later. And speaking of
dirty details, did you get my special little birthday care package, Brooke?
ReaderGirlBrooke: Yes, but I haven’t opened it yet. I
figured I’d wait till we were chatting.
Lizzie1214: Open it! Tell us what fun, twisted things
Rachael sent you.
Rachael-XXOO: Yeah, go ahead and open it up, birthday girl!
ReaderGirlBrooke: HAAA! I didn’t know they made so many
things in the shape of a penis. Lollipops, straws, a lipstick, pasta, and a
toothbrush! OMG! Where did u find a penis toothbrush?
Rachael-XXOO: I ordered everything online. Do you like the
theme??
ReaderGirlBrooke: I love it! Thank you!! I’m taking a pic of
everything right now to send you guys.
Lizzie1214: Will you actually eat the pasta and the
lollipops? I wonder what they taste like.
JessRomance93: Ew, yuck. What do you think it tastes
like?
Rachael-XXOO: Go ahead, Brooke, try a lollipop and tell us
if tastes like a pecker.
ReaderGirlBrooke: Yum. It does. 😉

Jimmy Dean-Quote Of The Week

Quote Of The WeekThis weeks quote is by Jimmy Dean.

Jimmy Dean

The funny think about this quote is the fact that I saw for the first time a few weeks ago when I got a new phone case from Phone Case Of The Month and this was the quote that was on the little card that comes with each case you get.  I knew once I saw the quote again that I had to use it.  It is so true and something I know I need to be reminded of all the time.  I am finding myself in a weird mental state as of late so this quote came into my life at the right time.  This is one I am going to keep on my desk at work because I need the reminder.

What do you think of this weeks quote by Jimmy Dean?

10 Questions

10 Questions

I got the idea for today’s post from The Daily Post and figured I would answer the 10 questions that they had listed because I didn’t have much time to get a post ready for today.  I am always going crazy because I have to get a weeks worth of blogging done before I am off of work during the week of Thanksgiving.

  • What is your favorite word?  I don’t know that I have a favorite word.  I am always saying words wrong on purpose but if I had to pick one word that was my favorite I would have to say it would be Puce.   I like the word because it is fun to say and there is no set color for what color it is.
  • What is your least favorite word? I would have to go with effect & affect because for the life of me I can never remember which one is which and I always end up having to google them and see which one I should be using.
  • What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?  I would have to say music is what makes me start thinking and wanting to get creative.
  • What turns you off?  Stress and being depressed.
  • What is your favorite curse word?  I would have to say shit is my favorite curse word but I do used some of the others at times as well.
  • What sound or noise do you love?  I can’t really say that there is one sound that I love more than other sounds.  I do love listening to the bag pipes even though they make me want to cry most of the time.
  • What sound or noise do you hate?  I hate nails on the chalkboard and even now just thinking about it make me want to cringe and it also makes my fingers hurt.
  • What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?  I have always wanted to be a life flight nurse so I would love to try that or even being a lawyer.
  • What profession would you not like to do?  I would hate to teach school because I don’t have the patience to do that kind of work.
  • If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?  I am not sure but I know I would want to know why things happened in my life.  I might be the one to ask why before he even got a chance to say anything at all.

If you answer these questions leave the link to your post in the comments so I can check out your answers!

One Million Dollars

One Million Dollars

I received a email from NaBloPoMo that had blog post ideas for the whole month of November and this one was the prompt for November 1st: If you found one million dollars in the morning and had to spend it by nightfall, what would you do with the money?  I loved this post prompt so I wanted to write a post about it and tell everyone what I would do with one million dollars and 24 hours.

I would like to say that I would donate part of the money to some charity but I know that I would never do that because at times I wonder what charities actually do with the money.  So I know the first thing I would do is by a new MacBook Pro and also an iMac because I have been missing my laptop this year and I have always wanted an iMac.

I also would probably go buy a new car and a condo/townhouse.  I don’t want a house because I don’t have the energy or time to keep up a yard.  I also don’t care if I share walls with a neighbor.  To me being out of my grandparents house is what I really want/need.  I could go on about that but for now I am just going to leave it at the fact that I want to get out but can’t because of bills and what I make at my job.  I have no idea what type of car I would get because the cars I am liking  right now aren’t super good in the winter.

I think I would probably also go and buy clothes and things like that because god knows I love to shop and if I had the money I would be shopping all the time.  Other than that I can’t really think of anything that I would do with the money.  I guess if I had left over money I would donate it to Villalobos because I would love to be able to help out the pitbulls that she has there and I love everything about the show that they are on.

So that is all that I would do with the money.  What would you do with one million dollars and 24 hrs?
