Mommy Wants Vodka

…Or A Mail-Order Bride

You Say Writer, I Say Block.


So, I’ve been absent from here not because I don’t heart my blog with the fire of a billion setting sun’s, but because I’ve got nothing right now to talk about. Sure, I suppose I could start filling pages with pictures of my kids, and maybe I will, but to me that’s not what this blog is about. I suck at photography (apparently the fancy camera I bought doesn’t a master photographer make) and my pictures are boring, so I’m not planning on doing this.

If I did this again, I’d feel like I was somehow cheating which would exacerbate my Writer’s Block and make me a very confused person. I get UPSET when I don’t post, and I’m hoping that if I throw this lame post up, it’s going to get my creative juices a-flowin’ (better then OTHER juices, right?).

AND, I can beg you for ideas, oh sexiest of Internets.

What on EARTH should Your Aunt Becky post about?

    Wow, me too. I blame allergies.

    Maybe we need to start some wacky meme, but I’m all allergied-out to even think about what that might be.

    Just write about anything and be yourself…Write about your ex addiction to NPR. Write about the Daver’s morning routine. Write about how you’ve become somewhat of a celebrity with your blog…The topics are endless.

    The Writer’s Block is going around hun! I like the whacked out meme idea…

    When I have nothing to write about I always fall back to the things I know- like sex. Or feet. Or foot sex. Ok, I know nothing of foot sex, but it sounded bizzare enough to get the mind flowing, right?

    A story! A random one, from days ago.

    (I would do this, but mine always seem to start out, This one time, at band camp, and that’s just embarassing!)

    I’m not minding the dearth of new posts as I’ve just discovered you and I’m LOVING the archives! I happen to love memes – though I’ve yet to see a sex meme. Could be interesting. There’s one going around that’s titled, “The Top 10 Things I love About my Life.” Being the pessimist I am, I’d want to counter with the ten worst as well. Best drunk stories, perhaps?

    I’m in a rut right now too… here’s to hoping we both have something exciting and/or interesting to blog about soon!

    I read a blogger who said once, on the topic of “how often should we blog”, “as for me, I will continue to post only when I have something to say”. I admired that. But I do try to stick with a 3-times-per-week posting schedule.

    I always feel creative after I read for a while… have you gone through your feed reader today yet? There’s always something that sparks the imagination out there in the humongous blogsphere.

    Writers block is common. You can’t be “on” everyday.

    Come on over to the peachfest at Doc and Mt. Cat’s blog!

    I don’t know if you’ve noticed (who am I kidding? of course you noticed)….but lately – my blog is mostly pictures of my kid. It’s because I’m suffering the same lack of ideas.

    So I say – post the kiddie pics until something comes around to write about.

    I deal with writers block in my music (and even in my computer programming) quite a bit. The key I have found to getting past it is to just not stop – keep engaging in the process, if only in little fits and spurts until the engine gets running again. Dont push it to hard, though, cause that just gets frustrating.

    Come to Peachfest!! We’re on a roll.

    maybe you could write more about Ben. I’m always amazed when you write about his unique abilities at an early age….
    maybe you could write about potty training auggie

    maybe you could write about the Wizard of Oz…

    Shit, it must be spring,,,,it brings on the block in all of us.

    just post crappy pics….it’s good with me.


  13. On May 20th, 2008 at 1:48 pm Jenn Says:

    Oooohhhhh! Yes – best drunk/high stories! I’ll even jump on that one *says she who does NOTHING but post pictures of her kids because she doesn’t want to talk about what is REALLY going on in her life*

    And did you know? I’m F*cking Matt Damon! Heh.

    You could write about that time you met Wil Wheaton. That cured my writer’s block over the weekend.

    Or you could write about how awesome I am.

    Or you could write about the worst thing you ever did in high school.

    Yeah, I’m in the writing rut, too. I think I’ve only posted like 5 times for May and the month’s almost gone. Shameful. But not enough to make me write, I suppose.

    Personally, I would love some Nat stories — those always warm my little heart.

    I’m right there with you. I’ve been in a serious blogging slump for over a week now. Luckily my brother was kind enough to have a baby and give me some blogging material, but I don’t know how much longer his wife’s va-jayjay can keep that up.

    Maybe we should form a blogger support group?

  17. On May 20th, 2008 at 2:47 pm Emily R Says:

    Gender. All the cool bloggers are doing it. Well, really just me, but that’s all that matters, right?

  18. On May 20th, 2008 at 3:11 pm DD Says:

    You mean there’s supposed to be topics and “points” to blogging?

    Fuck, I’m in trouble.

    How about your first prom?

  19. On May 20th, 2008 at 4:03 pm Calliope Says:

    I think it is going around…my bloglines have tumbleweeds blowing through.

    I would like to hear how you are planning on gifting me your swank camera.

    Take a break, girl!

    You so deserve it!

    That’s what I’m doing! 🙂

    I feel like this most of the time, so I just throw up some drivel a couple times a week to ease my guilt.
    But taking a break is a marvelous thing too.
    Sometimes I feel that the need to visit (as much as I love it) all the blogs I heart and all the blogs of my commenters becomes an overwhelming responsibility and I feel like I can’t write either. So take a break from that too!

    Your dreams at night.
    What you want in 5 years time if you could have anything.
    Who you think you were in a prior life, given that prior lives happen.
    What is the one thing you could give the world that would be of the most value (to humankind).
    Or your child’s stool- that’s extremely informative. But people don’t like reading about poo, so maybe veil it in allegorical stories.
    Pretend you are somebody else each morning, an imaginary person. Maybe who you were in that imaginary past life. And blog from her perspective. I’d be totally down with any of those. 🙂

    I agree with pp’s suggestions of doing your best drunken stories. Those are always fun!
