One of my favorite little cafes on the Internet is the blog of Beth Revis, who I've been following since before she was an debut author with a killer book. Beth does some great contests, and this one is no exception: you simply post about an adventure that you've had.
Except I couldn't do it.
I've been racking my brains for the past week and I cannot think of a single thing to write about. Thirty years of mishaps, missteps, random moves and bizarre tales, and I could not summon a single one.
My brain is broken.
This is a really bad time for my brain to be broken. I'm in the middle of a serious rewrite, a polish on another project and the annual gathering-of-Nano-material. Work is intense, with Homecoming and Dad's Weekend coming right on top of each other. I seriously bruised my hand last night and I can't seem to stop getting sick.
Plus the blog is in serious danger of dissolving into a stew of cute animal pictures, random youtube videos, and mindless blabbering.
So I'm unplugging for a week, possibly two. That way I can come back with fresh eyes and a fresh mind. I'll probably still be doing some Twitter/Facebook stuff, but not much else.
I promise, I'll be back by the first week in November. In the meantime, you should follow Beth. And if you're a writer, read her story, it will keep you encouraged.
See you later!
