Ugh, I hate this. I'm totally going through something in my private life that I can't really share and yet don't have anyone in the private life I can quite lay it on either. It's been a few years since I've felt like I was at a brick wall with something as important to me as my blog is. But I keep finding myself making up excuses to do anything BUT write for the blog. I know it's natural and lots of bloggers go through it, especially on one-reviewer blogs like mine. Doesn't make me feel any less cruddy that I'm not writing more than one post a week.
I wouldn't call it writer's block so much as a full-on mental resistance to anything social. When you feel overwhelmed and unhappy about serious stuff it can be tough wanting to write about the fun stuff or force tweets or focus on reviewing. On top of it I actually have been VERY busy all month preparing for a friend's wedding next month. You'd never guess how much preparation goes into a 10-day trip with kids until you have them. lol Making sure I have everything planned in advance from their fancy clothes and enough stuff to keep them entertained in a kid-free house to the dog's kennel reservations and stuff is seriously draining my mojo. Plus I hate traveling in general. I have a seriously embarrassing fear of being in vehicles as it is. Then go through 2 HUGE metropolitan areas, 4 dangerous mountain passes, and at least a 12 hour trip... OMG I'm giving myself hives.
So uhm yeah, that's kind of why I'm being a suck blogger right now. I don't mean to be, just feeling intensely quiet, and hard-core broody. Which is hot in paranormal heroes and so not hot in book bloggers. I did go out and finally get my nose pierced two weeks ago though. I have a really awful nose (thanks to my brother for breaking it when I was 12) so it's kind of like hanging a chandelier in an outhouse but I like it! :) Scratch another thing off the list of things I've wanted forever but never gotten around to doing.I am reading believe it or not. Working hard on The Darkest Seduction right now. I think it'll be my last LOTU book though. I skipped the one before it and am actually only reading it for the Mythological Romance reading challenge. The series has just hit this point where it feels so... ridiculous. There's no other word for it. I adore Gena, she cracks me up and is sweet as punch. I'm just not loving the series. I find characters to love and then get frustrated when nothing goes on with them for so many books. There are just too many of them I think. I also started up The Taken: Celestial Blues 'cause I've been really looking forward to it. So far it's alright but I'm only about 30 pages in so I don't have enough to go on. I just know the Grif on the cover is in one of those retro man outfits that is so hawt it should be illegal. Alas, I tend to find a lot of old mens' fashions far sexier than what they wear these days. What do you think? Foxy, no?
I was so busy over the weekend I completely forgot about my weekend reading post. We were out of town for the day and then we had a night out on the town Saturday and next thing I knew it was tonight. lol So anwyho, I really am around just feeling really lurky and not very chatty. Hoping once this private life stuff gets smoothed over in the next month or so I'll come out of it full of energy and enthusiasm for y'all. In the meantime I'll try my best but no promises I'm gonna be an awesome blogger in the next month or so. -- Rhi
