Here’s the thing

technical difficultiesThe last week or so has been… difficult. I’m not here to complain. I’m really not, but it’s not easy to write a blog post when one has to go back and fix every other word or so because my brain simply cannot keep up with my fingers.  It’s annoying and frustrating, and not conducive to good writing.  I keep meaning to write here. I do. But then I start and it’s all backspace, backspace, backspace and it takes, like, five minutes to write one sentence sometimes. And it’s not as though I write particularly difficult sentences.  I’m a fairly simple woman when it comes to words. Okay, okay… I may overuse modifiers (fairly, simply, very, &c…). But what can I say? I write close to the way I speak… mostly. ^_^  I try and take as many modifiers out as I can because I know that they are superfluous, but then my writing doesn’t sound like me…

hasthedumbsBut I digress.  What I’m trying to say here is that I don’t mean to abandon you, dear reader. It’s just that when I’m fatigued like this… words are hard. And stringing words together to form a coherent sentence? Well that becomes a gargantuan task, and one I’m not always capable of doing.  I try though… and I’m not always successful.  But y’all are always on my mind. I have ideas all the time of things I want to share and write about. They’re there in the back of my mind, just waiting for me to write *about* them some day.  Don’t think I haven’t seen all of those questions floating about. I have. I’ve even tried to answer them… but I fell asleep. >_< I’ll get around to them too. I will!

Some day… when I have the energy.

Until then, just know that I’m still here and I haven’t forsaken y’all. I’m just… here… until my body decides that it’s done being this tired. You know?

    A suggestion? Using whatever medium you’re comfortable with (Microsoft Word, hell I use those Sticki-Note things that come free with most towers and laptops, send yourself an email) and write down in one sentence or one word the ideas you get. That way, when you’re ready to write and able (which will happen, I got faith), you have a supply of thoughts to choose from. I need to start doing this myself more often, because I often run out of day before I run out of writing…by that I mean I have to limit my hours on the computer or I don’t sleep very well, and nothing else gets done. 😉 Take it easy. Feel better at YOUR pace. We’re here when you’re ready.

      I’ve tried doing that before — because I used to write short stories, you know? But then I’d look at these notes that I wrote myself to remind me of what I wanted to write about and I’d say, “What the what? I have no idea what I was thinking about when I wrote that.” hahahaha! I suck at leaving myself notes, I also suck at making things like grocery lists and things like that. I admire people who have their life organized with lists and notes. I never could get the hang of it. Doug has notes and lists. Me? Nah. I’m doomed to a life of forgetting.

    I’m often too tired to do anything much. Lucky for me there isn’t that much to do and writing for me is easy. AND since I started using GRAMMARLY, it fixed 90% of the typos, forgotten modifiers, left off esses and it even corrects the tenses. Which, it turns out, are not my strong suit. The free version of Grammarly is an add-on to Chrome and probably every other browser. It’s like a cleaning service for text.
