A few weeks ago, maybe more, I SHOCKED THE WORLD when I confessed that mayhaps, sometimes, just a little, I get blog block.
Most people advised me to take a break, but I decided to go with the less-recommended POWER THROUGH option because I am a POWERING THROUGH sort of gal.
So, that kinda worked. But only kinda. I’m still a little blocked, something I’m chalking up to not being able to figure out how to have this blog and a life wherein I have a full-time job and get to take naps and watch Fringe and still get to sleep at night like a normal human. I really love naps, and I miss them. Probably it will involve advance planning, which is not really my forte, I’m far better at flying by the seat of my pants, but I WILL DO IT FOR THE PEOPLE.
Anyway, I’m going to take a little breaky-poo while I try to figure this “planning” shit out. Just a week or so, no reason to riot in the streets (and I may be around this weekend, because I don’t know what’s good for myself.) Next week, you’ll be treated to a bevy of people I’ve suckered into writing for me beloved guest bloggers, some of the people I would love to read if I could figure out the whole 24-hours-in-a-day-plus-naps thing.
I REALLY like naps.
And I’m going to take one RIGHT NOW. See you in a week or so, boyz and girlz.
Sleep well. Will be glad to see ya when you get back.
NAPS are my FRIEND… if you figure out how to all of the above, especially the naps and FRINGE things, let us all know!
Enjoy yourself Michelle – look forward so seeing you when you get back – wish I could learn to nap & still sleep at night.
I actually like it when you have guest bloggers…turns me on to many more blogs! take care of you girl
I still have to figure out how to balance two blogs and still have a life. It came to a point a couple of years ago that I realized I was living my life in blogs. I had to step away from the computer!
When I have a blog block on my food blog, I just steal recipes from other bloggers and blog about them.
Enjoy your nap!
I hope you can figure it out because I think I like reading your blog as much as you like napping! I’d hate to see you have to give up Fringe (altho sometimes it creeps me out enough that I have a hard time napping afterwards!)
Naps are the inventions of the Gods themselves. It’s not worth chewing through the restraints if you can’t have a nap…. We’ll be here when you come back.
Nappers. We rank right up there with the theives, whores, and gluttons. I think the college students will thank you for a week off, as well. Enjoy.
Ooh….I love naps too, and I get very cranky when I haven’t had a nap in awhile. Enjoy your nap(s), and when you wake up, we’ll be right here.
Have a great break – you certainly deserve it after both entertaining and educating the shit out of your readership so solidly for so long!
Nick calls them ” Noopers” ….Short little naps taken at unplanned times…..Then there is the Southern Belle NAPS, that take a whole afternoon, usually on a Sunday…..when you wake up you have no idea what day or time it is….Enjoy!!!!
I’m suffering from writer’s block myself at the moment…hell, reader’s block too. Thus I feel your pain, and approve the break wholeheartedly!
If I may, a suggestion for when you return: Fringe blogging. Think of it! You could replicate Walter’s creepy shakes, or perhaps adopt a pet cow for your sidekick? That show is a veritable treasure trove of creepy new culinary themes.
Naps! Well, does sipping a tad too much bourbon and falling asleep over the rough draft of a new menu count? Have a nice one; We’ll be here when you wake up. Remember what the dormouse said? Feed your head! By the way, Ray Bradbury wrote a wonderful book on creativity which I would highly recommend if I could remember the title.
