I’ve been trying to write this blog since yesterday. Have you seen that movie, Secret Window? No, no, I’ve not gone stark raving mad and killed my husband and buried him in the garden, but the scene where Johnny Depp is trying to write, and he just keeps erasing it… That’s me and this blog. Because I feel drained. Because life is overwhelming. Because….
I know. Poor me. I promise this is not a pity party, but rather, a reason to ponder why I have had such a hard time coming up with a topic today. I read this really interesting article about how unpredictable the industry is, but Jen used it yesterday! (Gee, thanks Jen!) So what the heck should I talk about? I’ve started about four different blogs and deleted them all. They were dumb.
I’ve never had writer’s block before. I call this Blog Block. I’m currently on deadline for the third Jenny T. Partridge book, and that one is flowing okay. But by the time I am done writing that, and running kids around, and negotiating with psycho dance moms, there just isn’t a lot left.
But I don’t want to shortchange my blogs, either.
So I wonder. What do YOU want to read about in this blog. What brings you here, or drives you away? Are you here for industry talk? Industry gossip? Advice? Avoidance?
What brings you to MurderSheWrites? What other blogs do you read regularly, and why?
