12 Days of Christmas- Day 11

20 Dec

I honestly cannot believe I only have this post and the one for tomorrow, and then the 12 Days of Christmas series is over. I should be flying high! My creative juices should be spilling over! I should be spinning plates on my fingers, toes and nose simultaneously. The closest I’ve gotten to that tonight is when I burped and hiccuped at the same time.

Instead, I’m left with nothing.

This is how tonight has gone:

6:45 PM: *cracks knuckles* I’m gonna own this motherlover.

7:00 PM: I’m hungry. Snack, snack, snack, snack, snack, snack, snack!

8:00 PM: Taking a nap at 8 PM is totally appropriate, right? That won’t screw with my internal clock at all.

9:00 PM: Fuck, what day is it? How long have I been sleeping? I’m going through some serious Rip Van Winkle issues right now.

9:10 PM: Why is the underside of my left boob so sweaty?

9:25 PM: Is that a spider in the corner? Looks poisonous. Great, I’m going to get bitten and die and not in the cool apocalypse way everyone else will on Friday.


9:45 PM: Come on, get your head in the game. Post ideas, post ideas. I’m sure they won’t care if I write about how I found an M&M in my bra last night, but haven’t eaten an M&M since Halloween.

10:00 PM: What’s that tapping at my window? Could just be the wind, but it’s most likely a serial killer playing mind games with me.

10:30 PM: WHOA. “The Golden Girls” is on the Hallmark Channel right now. I must watch this episode I’ve seen a bajillion times, and laugh like the crazy spinster I am.

11:00 PM: I’m screwed.


Today’s challenge will be to tell me if this happens to any of you. What things do you do to put off writing, and how do you get yourself back on track?

Want to know the one thing I was able to do easily? Pick today’s winner! Congrats to twindaddy! E-mail me at Sipsofjenandtonic@gmail.com to claim your little slice of heaven.

    I start reading other people’s blogs to inspire me. It’s not so much that I take their ideas. I just get so inspired by their thoughts and opinions that it opens the floodgates for me in the writing sense. Also, I tend to write a little every night. I just type it out on my phone. Either I write an entire post that way or I’ll just jot down a few ideas and expand a little on it. Then I email myself and spiff that shit up the next day and BAM! Post created.

    I’m sure I won’t win this because I hardly ever win anything.*le sigh* I procrastinate everything in my house to do WordPress. Then I come up with ‘sections’ to cure my writers block. Or I read someone else’s blog and steal their ideas (not really). Or I tell another story about why I don’t talk to my family. Or I just comment randomly at posts. I do that a lot. A LOT.

    My boob sweats usually happen on the right side. Never the left. I swear. =)
