I can call this a Blogger’s Sick Day or a Blogger’s Stress Day (I think that might be a new one), but I am making yet another post about not making a decent blog post. Some may find it frustrating that I am sharing no details about my sickness or stress. Others will be happy to be spared the sordid details. I always say explanations are tiresome.
I throw in a picture to pep things up. I had thought to make this a Mid-Week Monsters Post, so here we are.
The fact is that even when undergoing great personal trauma (accuse me of overdramatizing if you like), I cling to my image of myself as a writer. I have not traditionally experienced great success in writing about what bothers me. What often happens is that as I write, I think, “Wow, I am really justified in feeling upset!” And I get even more upset. Go figure.
I have experienced greater success in distracting myself from my problems, if not with monsters, then with memories. The picture shows my husband Steven and I in Fabulous and Fatal, a murder mystery we presented to benefit the Herkimer County Historical Society.
OK, that got me over 200 words. I’ll call it a blog post and hope for a better one tomorrow.
