This was how I looked this week. Well, maybe that's an exaggeration, but sometimes ya cudda thunk so. I've been kind of bothered by a nuisance backache (still) and I think it's been affecting my writing of late. In fact, I know it has. I can't sit and type as long as I've been doing before and I hope to have that resolved really soon.
I started last Monday with blog conspiracy theories but I guess it's good to be careful but maybe paranoia doesn't start the week off in the best way. I did get quite a few good comments, but then again Mondays always seem to get more comments than most other days. This coming Monday I was planning on a piece about writing in general. I forget what it was at the moment but I'm sure it will come back to me this week-end.
Then Tuesday I got totally carried away when I was going to write about one thing and then thought about something really negative and got off on a rant. Well I promise to do better next Tuesday and you can look for my post "And Now For the Sticky Topic I Meant to Talk about Last Week But Got Carried Away Complaining About Things I Probably Can't Do That Much About.....". Hopefully readers will find this upcoming post to be fun and informative.
Even the Wednesday topic about my hot pepper plants, a topic dear to my heart (or should I say dear to my heartburn), was a little more piquant than most. At least I learned that my pepper plants are piquin peppers. I knew my readers will come through for me. This Wednesday is unplanned as of yet.
My topic last Thursday was probably not something writers, or any creative person for that matter, wants to hear, but this seemed like the week to bring it up--you know, my bad mood and all. Probably a debate topic about Valentine's Day would be appropriate this week since it will be on a lot of minds.
My Dream Day topic of yesterday didn't get many comments, but maybe everybody was speechless. But I did get a few really nice comments on my song lyrics, but I was hoping for more critiques. I can usually count on good ol' Stephen T McCarthy to be thoroughly analytical and he didn't fail me this time either. And then a real poet, Yvonne, from welcome to my world of poetry , had such nice things to say and asked if I had any more verse hidden away. Yes I do. I will have to think about that one.
Just for fun you might want to start checking L. Diane Wolf's Spunk on a Stick blog before or after you check mine. Seems like we've been having some synchronous lines of blog thought some days. I'm sure there's just been coincidence involved but who knows? They say that great minds think alike and it would be cool for me to be included in the category of great minds.
This week I finished Stephen King's UNDER THE DOME. This is probably the fastest read I've ever accomplished. On Tuesday February 16 I will be offering up my review and thoughts on this book. Hmm--maybe my reading this book partly contributed to my dark mood last week. Hey--it's Stephen King! What do you expect!
Have you read UNDER THE DOME yet? How's your week been going anyway? Do you think I should offer up any more poetry, verse, or song lyrics? If I do, will you read and comment? And if you don't like it, it's okay to say so, but try to tell me what you don't like about it. Hey, you blog friends are great!
