"Well, are we going riding?" My partner asked.
We always go cycling on the weekends and I was eager yesterday (I have a new bike) but cycling in a cold head wind is not my idea of fun.
"Can I have a cup of tea?" I asked instead and snuggled back down under the bed covers. The cat stretched at the foot of the bed before tucking into a tight little ball of tortoiseshell fluff.
Today is blogging day and I had no topic.
Last weekend I didn't blog either, as we spent the weekend with friends. I do, actually, have many topics in mind. I have to tell you about my new writing schedule which is working wonders; I've got a piece on the back burner about what makes us care about characters in fiction; and I have lots of reviews to write ...
So I drank one cup of tea and finished reading a story. Then a second cup and a different story. I finally made it out of bed, confronted the cold (it's autumn here) and emailed some fellow writers.
We had breakfast, scrambled egg on toast and fresh coffee. Then I was in my little writing space, with a view of the lake, writing my novel.
I love writing at the moment and cannot get enough of it.
Lunch was a bowl of pasta, followed by more writing.
This afternoon I made a cup of tea and read a short story called 'Snow White and the Seven Dogs' by Denise Moncrief (part of a compilation called 'Unleashed Hearts') and really enjoyed it, perfect for an afternoon read and cup of tea.
Then I was back at the computer writing more of my novel before nap time - love weekend naps.
The sun set, not that we could see it through those dark clouds, I ran a warm bath and poured a wine.
Finally, as I lolled in the bath, I tried to think of a topic for this week's blog post. Nothing. I googled 'what to blog about?' (I take my iPad to the bath) this took me to a number of sites giving blogging tips. I only read one, "Blog regularly", well I've failed there, haha!
Essentially, I think I've got blogger's block, brought on by a serious desire to write creatively. Or, maybe I'm just lazy ;)
See you next week.
