It’s one of those weeks – some much running through my head and so little time to write about any of it. I sit here trying to write something for my weekly blog post and the choice is between spending time and energy researching and writing a killer post or going back out to the living room to be with my wife and our guests.
Energy, that’s the problem. I’ve been spending my time in other places this week, mostly with family. We have family visiting from out-of-town and in the evenings I’ve been spending time with them and weekends I’ve been the driver and tour guide. So now that pizza is done and evening’s entertainment is on the TV, I am sitting here staring at a page with little hope of writing.
I decided that I should take my own advice and “follow the energy.”
In this case that means return to living room to watch Lawrence Welk reruns and let my brain turn off.
This week our guests leave and I’ll get back to my writing activities. I have a few things I am thinking of writing about. Here’s a list what I am currently thinking about, let me know in the comments what you’d like to see me write about next week:
1. Today I saw an interesting play called, Homeward Bound, An Orphan Train Journey, at Tabard Theatre Company is about the orphan trains that took children from New York city to foster homes in the midwest and other parts of the country between 1853 and 1929. It’s an interesting part of American history I’ve just learned about. I should warn you, it was a two hanky play.
2. I found a great post on Self-Publishing I like to speak to: http://andreamalexander.com/2015/09/19/self-pub-discrimination-deserved-or-unfair/
3. I am still working on a post I’ve titled, “Fourth Dimensional Writing.” It’s in its third rewrite. I am thinking the fourth rewrite will get posted.
4. As a follow-up to my post, “How to Get Me to Read Your Blog,” I have some thoughts on, “How to Annoy Me with Your Blog.”
5. Then there’s this post about redwood trees that keeps running though my brain.
Yeah, likely I’ll write about cats next.
Till next week,
