Postponing Posts . . . or . . . 21 Excuses for Not Posting

This year, I’ve posted a few times about how to find motivation or stay on schedule re blogging and writing.  There are numerous ways of doing this, and we only need Google to find them.  Whether they work, well, that’s entirely on us. 

I’ve probably shared once too often (ad nauseum, yawn) how my 10-12-hour-a-day job and mom-care responsibilities are limiting, not only re time but “focus”.  Finding something to write about can prove a struggle.  Majorly.

So, as I once again tossed and turned last night and ideas flowed through my scrambled, er, scrambling gray matter, I thought about providing [my] reasons for not [wanting to] post.  And, goll-lly (as Gomer Pyle might have once said with that goofy but endearing smile), I thought of something.  Why not list those reasons? 

Why not indeed?

I [bloody well] don’t feel like it. 

I can’t think of anything!!!!!!!!!!!!

I need a brain-cation.

Does anyone need more editing advice?

Does anyone need more motivational suggestions?

I’m having a pity party or three, and blowing out the candles is exhausting.

I’d rather nap.

A long walk, followed by a cup of tea or glass of wine, would be rather pleasant.

The cupboards are in desperate need of cleaning.

Darn, those ten pairs of socks could use some serious darning.

The cardinals living adjacent to the building need feeding.

No one will notice if a post isn’t delivered on the promised day[s].

Coffee’s calling . . . repeatedly.

Maybe Mom wants to go get another manicure.

Those French fries stuck to the bottom of the oven should [finally] be removed.

Baseboard-cleaning might not be a bad idea.

Watching a couple of [free] motivational vids sounds like a worthwhile endeavor.

I hear the vacuum-cleaner calling.

I haven’t read The Odyssey yet; maybe it’s time to blow off the dust and open it.

I haven’t had a long hot, bubbly bath in years; maybe it’s time to indulge.

This seems like a good time to take up jogging.

For the next post, perhaps I’ll think of 21 more.  Or maybe I’ll have one of the Triple Threat Investigation Ageny P.I.s list hers.  <LOL>

Enjoy your Wednesday.

Author: tylerus

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.
