I read a blogging tip several months ago (and of course failed to bookmark it, damn me all to hellz!) that when you are stuck for a topic, you should write for whichever of your categories contains the fewest blog post entries. Brilliant!
Finding myself stuck, I thought I’d see what our top losers are.
I DIDN’T WRITE ABOUT — ZOMBIES!
I cannot fucking believe I only wrote about zombies ONCE since March 2012. This is a goddamn travesty, is what, and I aim to fix that. Starting soon. Maybe. We’ll see.
Now that I think about it, what more can be said about zombies that hasn’t already been imagined? Beyond the “Oh God I hope they don’t get me!” statement, or something along the lines of “Those bastards are so fucking scary!” or the question of “Fast zombies? Or slow zombies?”… yeah, I don’t really have much to contribute.
I’ll let you know if anything changes in that department.
I DIDN’T WRITE ABOUT — HOUSE REPAIR!
Well, duh. That’s because it’s boring. I’m going to remove this stupid-ass category altogether.
I DIDN’T WRITE ABOUT — MARRIAGE!
This one is curious. But I take it as a good sign. Mostly I write complain-y types of things on this here bloggy-blog. Lack of complaints in my marriage is a damn fine thing, wouldn’t you agree? And my hubz is pretty fucking awesome. I mean, he does all the work here.
That sounds an awful lot like he wrote that himself. I assure you, he did not. This is Andi-Roo saying all the good stuff about my hubz. I ask him to marry me daily. He always says, “Sure, why not?”
I DIDN’T WRITE ABOUT — CONVERSATIONS!
One of my greatest writing abilities, beyond appropriate use of apostrophes, is recording dialogue. My WIP is replete with conversations, because that is how I am best able to drive characters into action, deliver information, and develop background. I’m good at it, and they sound all for realz when I do it.
That doesn’t translate so well over to my bloggy-blog, though. Fact and fiction are two separate things. I’m talking about real issues over here, and spelling it out often means skipping the “what they said” parts.
That’s not to say I don’t have any conversations here — obviously as there are 4 entries in this category! I just don’t know that it’ll happen enough to warrant its own folder. Might have to get rid of this one.
Really, talk is just a bunch of blah-blah-blah if it isn’t going somewhere.
I DIDN’T WRITE ABOUT — TECHNOLOGY!
That’s because I don’t know jack-shit about it. My son has an iPad, & I have an iPod Touch. That’s where it ends, people. This category might have to shuffle off, too.
Everything is progressing forward so fast, it’s a whole new world on a daily basis.
I DIDN’T WRITE ABOUT — DIVORCE!
It’s a touchy subject, and the subjects object. We’re all trying to work things out and build better communication, so this one will likely not crop up again. RESPECT.
I DIDN’T WRITE ABOUT — MOVIES!
Say, WHAAAAAT??? I freaking love movies! What the fuck is wrong with me??? How could I skip this category???
Lucky for me, we are entering Oscar season.
What this means: My sister and I strive to see as many of the Best Picture nominees as possible, along with the Best Actress and Best Actor noms as well. Between now and January 10, when the nominations are announced, it’s all a guess based on celebrity, magazine, and news buzz.
Once the announcement is made, there will be a fuck-ton of movies viewed until the Academy Awards on February 24, 2013. That’ll add to this folder in NO TIME!
I DIDN’T WRITE ABOUT — PHILOSOPHY!
In case you didn’t notice, people, I’m still trying to figure it all out. I’ve got my Personal Commandments, and I try to live by them. Other observations I’ve made along the way are as follows:
I’m likely an alien
Zombies are scary
I don’t wanna look at your boobies
My hubz is not a shit-head
My kids are not bratty
My cat is better than yours
I don’t know how much more philosophical I can get. Don’t Worry, Be Happy?
