Unplugging and an adventurous contest

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!


  1. I so feel you. October has been my month to chill in preparation for NaNo. I believe we push ourselves too much sometimes, so it's good to step back every now and again.

    I'll see you in November!

  2. Take care, and enjoy your blog break :)

  3. *grin* Well, *I* predict that you'll have an adventure during your unplugged time since you've been thinking about it :)

  4. Enjoy your time off. Sometimes we all need that kind of time. Hope your revisions go well.

  5. Hahaha! Beth, you called it. Yesterday morning my computer caught fire. Guess I'm definitely out until November...

  6. Enjoy the break! While you're on it, let somebody else choose an adventure for you, and see what happens!
