Not in the Mood to Write

I'm just not in the mood to write. I don't want to create, blog, edit or in anyway engage my writing gear. I want to veg out, turn off my 8 million thoughts and just be.

Only I suck at being zen. Yep, really suck at it.

I always have what ifs and oh no's swimming around in my head, bouncing off the the concrete and landing like a metal sliver in the back of my eye.

I worry. I wonder.

I get IBS and spend the weekend in the bathroom.

Normally, I write out my anxieties, my hopes but I'm just not interested. Not even if you smeared it with chocolate frosting and stuck hundred dollar bills in its g-string.

That's life.

My muse will wake up and stretch sometime soon but then, I may not be publishing much here or other wise.

It's summer.

It's hot.

I'm chubby.

Chubby girls should try not to sweat in July.

That's my excuse anyway.




  1. I hear ya! I'm on the verge of losing it about now. I'm not a happy camper. Perhaps we can wallow together.


  2. we have a heat wave all the way up here in Canada (yes we have heat and no we don't have snow all year round...seriously there's ppl who come in the middle of summer with their skis...saw them on the highway a few times lol)... anyways yeah this heat thing is making me not want to do anything at all but i can't sit still for long...my muse is stubborn...only comes around for short bursts of time...usually right before i fall asleep

  3. You chill out and we'll see you soon.

  4. Sorry you're feeling low, Tirz. :-(

  5. Hey Tirzah, Just wanted to let you know that I loved "Love and Lighter Fluid" Nicely done!

  6. Brent, that is so nice of you to say. I now, of course, see 100 ways to have improved it.


  7. Oh I'm sure! I think it was Robert Frost that said "a poem is never finished, just abandoned." I know i feel that way about my own work. But seriously, good stuff!
