When the Mood’s Not There

The Boss blanked out re today’s post.  So did JJ, Linda and me.  He-he.  It happens, right?  We all suffer from writer’s/blogger’s block . . . sometimes, more often than we’d like to admit.

The Boss will readily admit that she has blanked out on a number of occasions of late.  It’s all good.  Oh, by the way, it’s Rey today, hey!

I can think of some things to post about, none really related to the theme of this blog.  And that might be okay, but I think I’ll save those for another time.  So, I’m just gonna shift into auto-pilot a bit.

The Boss has been wanting to re-invent/redesign this blog for a short eternity, which she’s shared.  Poor thing’s stuck with both feet in boggy terrain at the moment, so that ain’t happening any time soon (unless Fate changes her mind, decides to be kind, and grants her some good luck for a change).

But if she can’t redesign the blog or offer new services (like editing and proofing), she can always take a half hour here and there and update previous posts.  So can you.  Instead of scrambling for new ideas, take old ones . . . and add some freshness. 

Update photos and graphics.  Change font colors and headings, add new data or remove what no longer seems of value … “renovate” those posts however you deem best.  Add links.  Maybe you write them from a different perspective.  The three of us—JJ, Linda, and me—are as dissimilar as jelly beans and ice-cream.  Some may not like what I have to say, or how I say it, and that holds true for my fellow private eyes.  But we all have a distinct voice and that is a very good thing.

So, if you’re not in the mood to write/blog, or can’t think of anything new, go with the old.  And add a twist or two.  Remember: everything old is new again—at some point.  He-he.

And you know what I am in the mood for?  Shave ice!  Catch ya later!

I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction. So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects). It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
