In A Daze


SOLSC Day 22

Today my brain is not working, so what else in new.  This has been a somewhat busy week for us and we were out more days than we were home.  Next week is even worse but that’s a different story.

Because of that I tried to have each day’s post written the night before so that all I had to do was publish each day.  I sat down yesterday afternoon to write this post.  I sat,  and I sat, and I sat waiting for some kind of inspiration.  Hoping I would find an interesting topic to write about.

Nothing. I stared at the blank screen.  Don’t tell me I’ve come this far in the challenge and I am now going to blow it because I can’t think of something to say.

I know what the problem is.  I am tired.  The older I get the longer it takes for me to bounce back from being out for a day and here I was out three days in a row.  Maybe if I go to bed early tonight and get 8 hours of sleep I’ll be ready with an exciting and thought provoking post for Saturday.

Nah. Who am I kidding.  It’s not going to happen.

    And you still wrote something! Something honest and full of emotion! Great job

    Slices are moments and you shared your feelings in this particular moment. Honest and real. Hope you get some rest tonight!

  3. It’s all cool, I’ve been there many times myself. Sometimes I think it’s the pressure we put upon our self to outdo what we did the day before. And your blog today said more than you realize.

    Ah, to have the energy of my youth with what I know now (dare I call it wisdom?!). Glad you managed to write about this despite, “The older I get, the longer it takes for me to bounce back….”

    I have had a few days like this during this year’s challenge. I’m glad you still showed up as a writer

  6. This close to the end of the challenge I will not give up. I will find something to write about – even if it means taking a nap later this afternoon. 🙂

    Writing about not being able to write…genius!

  8. I also tend to write at night and publish in the morning. I also did not do so last night. I went to bed thinking I’d write a post about the sounds I heard because I slept with the window open. I heard one car. I sat down this morning and wrote about the book I read in class.

    I am in the same boat as you, too tired, no ideas. I need to pull myself together. It’s getting late. Knowing that you felt like this and wrote, gives me hope

    • You can do it. Somehow no matter how tired and out of ideas we are one does seem to find us. Looking forward to reading what you came up with later.

  10. But still, you wrote! My post is a little later than usual today because I knew I would not be home until later in the afternoon and I was too tired last night. And I’m still tired!

  11. The best way past writer’s block is to sit down and write, right? 🙂

  12. Regardless of how tired you are, there is always your unique tone present in your posts! This one included! Early goodnight!

  13. You did it! Well done! You have been amazing and an inspiration to me. Keep writing!

    • Thank you. On days like this when I have no plan I never know what the end result of my writing will be. I tried to instill this in my students. Sometimes it is not so important what you write just that you write.

  14. Bone tired. When you’re young and people say it, you don’t get it. Then the years add up and one day you do.

  15. As I’m catching up on commenting, I’ve read several posts from March 22-24 that shared similar struggles. My own “Slicing Blues” happened then too! But sleep obviously rejuvenated you because your next post is one of the best thing I read all month. Of course I am biased towards all things cat….
