Sorry that I have not been posting here recently. Things here at home and at work have been crazy. By the time I get to relax in my chair and get ready to post, I am so tired that I end up falling asleep. It is also taking me longer to read a book than it did in the past. Lastly we had a cold front move in and it was blowing a lot of dust and everything. Well now my allergies are all acting up. My sinus’ are all stuffed up, and it is starting to turn into a cold. I am also losing my voice now. Usually when the wind kicks up like that around this time of year, I will get laryngitis. I usually get it at least once a year, at the beginning of the year, or end of the year.
I guess with losing my voice and when so cannot think of anything to write, I have total writers block. I have been trying to write on my novel at work on my break, but it seems that I have noting to say rich now. Well I am going to go back to sleep, will talk with you later.
Today I have been sitting here staring at a blank screen giving myself a headache trying to think of something to write. This has really been going on for about a week now. I sit at the computer trying to think up something to write about, but nothing comes to mind. I know I need to write something besides book reviews all the time, but since I started back to work it is like the creativity has been stifled, or choked off.
Nothing seems to flow as easily from my brain to the paper anymore. I cannot even write on the children’s book HOW TO CATCH A HUMAN. That one is usually easy to write. Now I can’t even grasp onto one little pea size thought on that book. I also have been so tired that at night when I go to bed and read I fall asleep within the first fifteen minutes. I normally read maybe two hours or more. I catch my kindle falling on my face and it wakes me up, or my sister or nephew will come into the room to get to the bathroom and ask me if I want them to turn out the light for me since I have dozed off.
Wish I could figure out what is causing this writers block, so I could resolve the issue. Until then I will continue to try to work around it and find things to write about. I am thinking about pulling out one of my novels that I am working on and start posting it here to see what you think about it. That way I can get your feed back on what I should keep and get rid of. It will help me out a lot. I will continue to try to write content at work so I can post it when I get home. It is almost time for bed, so I will talk with you tomorrow.

Have you ever had one of those days where you are all set to sit down and write, with your computer, paper or pencil in front of you. You sit down, and nothing. Not a d@$% thing goes from your brain to the page. The more you stare the more of nothing you get. That has what the last couple of days has been like for me. I don’t know if it is because that my knee is paining me more or the pain medication is making me a little more loopy. I just can’t seem to get my brain to function right now.
I guess not working 47+ days and being on a leave of absence trying to get my knee fixed is stressing me out. Must be a little bit of cabin fever. I wanted to try to finish the book my sister and me are working on, and to work on the urban fantasy novel that I was working on before I hurt my knee. I guess I am just having one of those days, and the more I try to use my brain the more it hurts. I will probably just do a little research and maybe it will jar something loose in my brain that will get me to writing on both of these stories. I would really like to get both of them done.
Now if I can just pry my sister of her Guild Wars 2 video game, maybe she can give me some input on the story we are working on. If you have any suggestions of what you do to get over writer’s block, let me know. I would really appreciate the feed back. It is very frustrating some days when you have some idea of what you want to say, but you just can not put it to paper. So on that note , it is getting late and need to take some more medicine for my headache and go to bed. I will talk with you tomorrow.
