I don’t have a topic, ok??
I’m over here with the world on fire, what with my mother being bounced around hospitals and needing to move apartments in less than 18 days. I have to pack and clean and find a place, all while dealing with the emotional rollercoaster of my mother being sick. Ergo, topics are scarce. So scarce that I didn’t write last Thursday, and then felt all guilty about it. I hate that; I always try to tell myself that this blog is FREE-I do not make money off it, so if I take a break one day, it is not a problem. I am disappointing no one, and if there is one dissatisfied individual out there who looks forward to regular, biweekly postings…well that’s just too bad. I ain’t getting paid for this.
But then I think about Wednesday, when I post on Patreon, over where I DO get paid. I haven’t written any new content, so I’m going to have to deep dive the computer archives to find a piece. For Patreon, I will put in the effort, and I will certainly make the time, because there is a paycheck involved. Again…this blog is free, now and forever. So, forgive me if I take a break.
Speaking of paychecks, work is also a priority that has sidelined some of the writing. I am working mornings at one job and will soon be starting afternoons at another. Work saps my energy, which leaves me plenty creative but with very little follow through. Like, I want to write today, but I also worked this morning and would love to go sit on the sofa and watch tv when I am done here.
God, that sounds good. Ok, I’m done here.
