I’m experiencing one of the most profound cases of writer’s block I’ve ever had since the birth of this blog.
Typically, an idea for a post pops up early in the morning. Often sandwiched between my first two cups of coffee. I allow the idea to germinate, and then grow slowly throughout the day. I do try to leave it alone, but by and by I pick at it. By evening, it has festered. And then after the children are mercifully placed in bed, it just explodes out of me, all over the computer screen.
Then I hit “publish.”
I could blame this particular case of writer’s block on a lack of sleep. Which would be odd, because usually sleep deprivation only aids in my lack of inhibitions and my blog thrives when I feel uninhibited and punchy.
Those are my favorite posts which cause the more squeamish of y’all to run screaming, “MY EYES. MY EYES.”
And perhaps I will even blame my new Mother’s Day present.
It’s a new fangled computer stand, which allows me to work from the comfort of my bed. I have a place to set my wireless mouse, and drink of choice. I even have a little reading light attached to the side.
(I also scored some of those fancy aloe infused socks and matching sleeping gloves.)
When did I become a 90 year old woman?
Now I can lay in the comfort of my bed and stare at a blank screen.
On a completely unrelated note, I’m counting the minutes until the Florida Homeschool Convention next week.
Anyone else going?
