I'm a Fool for You...Blogger

"Sucked into the super massive." ~Muse - Super Massive Black Hole

Blogger: Um…soooo…. *longish kind of short pause* Whatcha doin?

Me: *typing away on lappy* My writer’s block is gone, so *shrugging shoulders* I’m writing.

Blogger: Oh. *Another longish pause—a little awkward*

Me: *Still typing*

Blogger: So I haven’t seen you hanging out for a while... It’s like you fell off the internet. *uncomfortable laugh*

Me: *stopping, looking up at Blogger* I really want to get this revising done. I’m on a roll. It should only take me a few days to be caught up.

Blogger: *pursed lips, tone defensive (a little annoying)* You didn’t even say you were unplugging or anything. I mean…what’s up with that?

Me: I wasn’t planning on unplugging, it just kind of happened that way. *putting fingers back on keys, commencing the writing*

Another awkward pause, really…really…realllly long. Blogger looks a little fumed.


Blogger: Be honest. Are you breaking up with me?

Me: What? *surprised at Blogger’s concern…and honestly, a little perplexed*

Blogger: Is it my hair? I knew it! You hate my hair! *little sob*

Me: Ah….no... It’s not your hair. I promise. I’ve just been so busy with the writing that I kind of…haven’t been blogging.

Blogger: So you’re not breaking up with me?

Me: No you silly. I’m not breaking up with you. I’m just unofficially unplugged. I’m sorry I didn’t tell you sooner.

Blogger: So we’re okay then. *wiping away a single tear (for dramatic sake)*

Me: Yes, we are just fine. I’ll be back next week.

Blogger: Whew.

Me: So… *making a funny face, not realizing the strangeness of it all* You have hair? Interesting.

Sorry I haven’t been commenting lately my awesome bloggy best friends. My writer’s block has broken and I’m sucked into the super massive writing hole. I promise I’ll be back next week (or the week after…you know. If this writer’s block stays away.)

But before I run off to write, how do you guys deal with writers block? Be honest, do you talk to blogger when it happens?

Fun! I keep writer's block away with copeous amounts of popcorn and pixie stix. :)

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Glad to hear you are in the middle of something good....
Writer's block solutions? read and watch movies and critique for bloggy buddies...

Fun post!

Bwahahaha! This is so. dang. funneeee!!!

Enjoy your writing time Carolyn! After an awesome post like that I can totally forgive you for not being around. ;)

Summer Ross said...

LOL- This was brilliant! Loved it and found myself laughing with the break up part. Very creative.
Honestly I don't talk to blogger, but I do talk to myself or my story- or my pen- or even my paper.
Have fun writing!

Sara B. Larson said...

Yay! Good luck with your revisions/writing. I just power through writers block. Or give up and go read a good book to make me feel worse about having writer's block. (in the hopes that it will inspire me!) Can't wait to see your work!

Quinn said...

Haha! Great! Good luck with the revisions and writing.

KarenG said...

LOL you could have titled this post "It's not you, it's me."

Al said...

Fun!
At least a writing hole is a good place to be if you have to be sucked anywhere :-)

Jamie Burch said...

Too funny! So thrilled that you broke free from writer's block. Way to go! Good luck with your revisions...:)

Jen Daiker said...

Bahahaha... and she's back!

I know you're there... I love you! You're my bestie!!!

L.T. Elliot said...

You two make such a sweet couple. ;) Glad you're going to "counseling" and working through this rough patch. =]

Have fun revising!

Solvang Sherrie said...

I spent this week doing a huge revision myself so I totally sympathize!

lotusgirl said...

Good luck. We'll see you when you get back.

Jolene Perry said...

Enjoy the delightful place that is writing. We'll see you whenever you return!

Becca said...

Yea for Carolyn's bloggy break! Write on, sista.

Susan R. Mills said...

I just came back from a break myself. I understand where you are coming from. No harm it stepping back for a bit. See you when you return!

Jolene Perry said...

I know, I know, you're on a break and should ENJOY it. However, I have a blog award for you if you'd like to take it. Or, you can ignore it, I'm okay with that too ;^)

LisAway said...

I didn't read that as it happened I SAW it! Super fun. Glad you've got a great reason for not blogging! Type away (and try not to think too much about Blogger's hair). :)

Terry Stonecrop said...

To hell with Blogger, you're on a roll!!!

Not to worry, we'll miss you but we know how it is. A woman's gotta do what a woman's gotta do. I just got back from a biz break.

Good luck with it! See you when you return:)

Creepy Query Girl said...

OH yes, my blog and I have had this exact conversation many times:) Good luck with the writing!!

Tiana Smith said...

Ha ha, I love this :) I don't usually talk to Blogger, but I do talk to something, I'm not quite sure what. It's like I'm talking to myself or my writing ability. Usually I just need a break when that happens.

This was so cute!
