Here We Go Again

Another NanoPoblano down, another NanoPoblano hangover. I’ve only done one post since November ended, and I only did that one to work through the trauma that my brain endured due to that guy’s words. I’m still not over it, mostly because he keeps adding to it. For those of you who are curious, here are some of the new things he’s told me in the past week: a fully detailed account of his dog’s pooping habits, his thighs sometimes chafe from rubbing together, he’s got a cyst on his tailbone that will occasionally leak blood into his underwear, and he’s quitting the second job he just got after two days because a couple of his coworkers there talked openly about being gay and it made him uncomfortable.

But, anyway…

This happens every time I do NanoPoblano. Afterwards, I always have trouble either coming up with ideas for new posts, or I just don’t have the motivation to write any new posts. In this case, it’s more of a motivation thing. I have an idea for a post. It’s a lyric suggestion for my Song Lyric Stories. The problem is I’ve started it. If you’re wondering why that’s a problem, it’s because I’ve started it four different times now. I’ll write a paragraph or two and I’ll either not like what I’ve written or lose interest in it. Then I’ll start over again.

I’ve also thought about doing a post or two about movies or shows I’ve watched recently and I can’t even muster the energy to begin writing those posts. I’ve read a few things lately that I could possibly do a review for, but nothing that gets me excited enough to get in front of a keyboard to do it.

On the other hand, I have gotten some writing done in my current novel project. It’s never a lot, maybe a few hundred words at a time, but it’s more progress than I had been making.

Unfortunately, I think my writing time will be severely limited coming up. Not only is it the holiday season, I’m also on mandatory overtime until after the new year as my company tries to push out as much as it can before 2022 ends. The paychecks will be nice, but I see a lot of tiredness in my future.

So, I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting or commenting as much as I was doing during November. Hopefully, I’ll be able to pick it back up soon.

    That guy has worse problems than gay people. Euwww! Have you been able to watch Wednesday on netflix? If you haven’t I highly rocommend it. It’ delightful in the best ways. I love Tim Burton. Have as good a holiday as you can manage with all those hours. 🙂

  2. Curious about what you read or watched that you liked. I understand you don’t have the time to get around to writing about it, but if your inspiration strike you…

    • Well, as far as what I watched that I liked, there’s a movie on Netflix called Code 8 that stars the guy who played Arrow and his real life cousin (although their characters aren’t related in the movie) where they play people with superpowers. I thought it was really good.

      As far as something I’ve read recently that was good, the last one I finished was a book called Once Bitten by James Harper. It’s the 16th book in his Evan Buckley mystery/thriller series.

    I promised myself I wouldn’t slow down much after November and yet I have and did. Do what you can when you can. Yay (and boo) for overtime.
