Writer's block, I has it

I open up this page and look at it for twenty minutes before just closing it down and thinking to myself maybe later. I open my email and want to respond to people; I open each email and read them and think, I know I should respond to this, but I don't. I open Twitter and can't think of a thing to say. I get text messages from friends that I don't answer. I "lost" my phone yesterday just so I wouldn't have to talk to anyone on it.

I am blocked. I am lost in my head right now. Maybe it's Spring fever, seeing how its freaking snowing. Again. Maybe it's trepidation at the thought of visiting my dad and step-mom this coming weekend. Maybe it's, well who knows. All I know is, I'm just not in the writing mood, nor the talking mood. All my words are used up in talking to my children.

I know, you all say, just don't post when you don't want to and in theory that is great. But BlogHer Ads has a post requirement. Also, if I don't post, I feel worse. The longer I go, the more I wonder if I ever will find my voice again. I know this blog has sucked lately. I know I haven't written anything worthwhile in a month at least. I am thrilled any of you come back at all.

Here's what I'm going to do: I'm going to use the old blogging standby. Ask me any questions you want. Anything you want to know, anything you think I haven't told you. Whatever you want. I'll do my best to answer them in a few days. Maybe this will help me find my voice again.

I want to know...

If you could teach yourself something, what would it be?

If you could go on a vacation- any vacation- and take one person- BUT it couldn't be your hubby or kids, who would you take and where would you go?

And last... If you were a candy, what would you be and why?

I know, silly questions. You didn't say they couldn't be silly, though :)

are you on meds? if not, you should be.

Dear Anonymous, you are a big fat turd. Leave Issa alone.

And, my dear Issa, my phone has been "lost" for days and days. Sometimes I think it's for the better. Don't worry, we're all still here.

Breaks are good. What movie(s) have you watched more than twice? Why?

Kari said...

Ooo, I like anymommy's question, that's a good one. And it made me think of this one...

What song could you listen to over and over and over, and never get sick of?

J from Ireland said...

I do that too with the phone.
What would you do if you won the lottery?

Kay said...

I have to second Delusional's response to Anonymous. Everyone has down times. Not everyone needs to be medicated. However, rude people should be shot. Just my opinion.

How about trying some journal prompts? I get the same way - there just aren't any words. But the longer you go without writing, the harder it is to get back into it, at least for me. That's why I'm sticking to the whole Blogging With Discipline... I'm doing really good. It's been 3 days :) Talk to me again in a week.

Anonymous said...

First, I would like to invite anonymous to my blog. You see, I am medicated, and I resent the implication that there is anything wrong with (1) being medicated and (2) those of us who are. All I ask is that he/she grow a pair first and have the guts to own a comment. Bring it.

But I digress...
Knowing that you just got back from Hawaii, what I want to know is where in the world you would most like to visit and what you would like to do there. If you're feeling particularly in need of material, let's make it three places. ;-)

Fuck you anonymous.

I have days (weeks, months) where I feel like a much better blog reader than a writer. It ebbs and flows.

Here are my questions: Name your favorite thing about each of your kids. How did your husband propose? What did you have for dinner last night?

Jaden Paige said...

Anonymous. I second the resounding "suck it" coming from all the other commenters. If you are going to be a nasty troll, at least put your name to it. I hate when people come to just be rude, and I hate it even more when they don't own it. That just makes you a COWARDLY, conceited, judgmental idiot. Go away.

And so what if she needs meds, or even if she is on them?! What the hell are you implying? All kinds of AWESOME people are on meds. Once again... bite a big donkey dick. Oops, sorry for the slip up on nice wording, Issa... I just can't stand when people act like that. It pisses me off. Have a wonderful weekend in NC! *hugs*

I don't know what everyone is so upset about; you should be honored to have been diagnosed by the honorable Dr. Anonymous. What more could anyone really ask for? I sure hope she comes by and tells me what's wrong with me without ever having even seen me!

I'm going to ask you the only question I can't believe no one has already asked you: If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be? :-)
