In Which I'm In A Slump

As the title says, I'm in a bit of a blogging slump right now. I have some blog post ideas, but I just can't find the energy to write them.

I even came up with a good idea in the shower (You know, thank god for the shower. My stories would be less fleshed out and my blog emptier without my time in the shower. For reals.) but when I sat down to blog about it, I was just met with a "meh" feeling.






So, I think I will take a small blogging break. Not too big, just for next week. By then, I should have some mojo back. I should, at the very least, have a WIP update by then since I'm starting to hear back from my beta readers (though I'm still waiting on my critique from Agent Sara Megibow. And the closer it gets to the end of February, the more crazy I get about checking my email for it.)

So, Yvie will still have a Friday Fun this week, but then we'll be on a break for next week.

Hopefully I'll see you back here then!

First, you are too sweet. I've missed you too and I smiled when you said you had me in the must reads :)
I hope your slump goes away! I've had a fairly long one myself...they happen. I'll be lookin forward to your return. And that Gif guy keeps making me yawn. So contagious. Enjoy the break! :)

Heather Hellmann said...

Enjoy your break!

Christine Danek said...

i'm in a blogging slump too. Too much going on. Almost done. ;)
Enjoy!

Maria Zannini said...

Relax and recharge. Yvie can hold down the fort. :)

Shannon said...

Enjoy your break! <3

Erica - slumps seem to be popping up everywhere right now. Maybe it's the time of the year

Heather - thanks!

Christine - Yay!

Maria - eh, she can be pretty slumpy when she wants to be

Shannon - thanks!

Janel said...

Have fun on your break! Your mojo will come back. I promise. :)

Anne Gallagher said...

See you on the flip.

Teebore said...

Yeah, I'm in a total blah slump too. Not blogging-wise, since I pretty much do the same things every week, but everything else.

After my cold last week, everything just seems...gray. I don't really want to do anything. I'm not even that excited about the Oscars on Sunday.

Blegh.

Matthew Rush said...

At least you had some James VanDerWhatever for us. Thank god for that.

Margo Benson said...

Enjoy some *you* time, blogging can be pretty hard.

Psst...your mojo is behind the thingy, under the what-not :-)

Laura Marcella said...

Enjoy your break, Sarah!

Holly Ruggiero said...

I’ve been considering a break too, but not for the same reasons. I just need to get other stuff done!

Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...

Janel - i'm sure it's just hiding about somewhere

Anne - will do!

Teebore - yeah i hear that. I think it's the stupid tease of a false spring followed by another blizzard that really did me in

Matt - LMFAO!! Thank god indeed

Margo - LOl - ohhh, is that where it got to?

Laura - thanks!

Holly - there is that too, thought nothing immediate for me until i hear back from all of my awesome betas

Naomi Ruth said...

I've been in a bit of a slump since Januaries, so I understand entirely. Rest up and take lots of showers! ;)

Also, good luck with the wip. Woo!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Get energized and inspired and we'll see you next week!

roxy said...

The critique from the agent sounds really exciting. Hope that goes well! Enjoy some time off, and have a fun break.

Al said...

Have a great break.
Come back with more of your usual inspiration!

Lindsay said...

have a great break. Keeping my fingers crossed you hear back on the crit soon :)

Hart Johnson said...

You KNOW why that shower thing works, don't you? It's because you're NAKED. Naked frees the muse. Muses hate binding clothing... *nods* Your assignment, Grasshopper, is to help spread the word. We would ALL be happier and more creative if we were naked...

(hope you aren't gone too long!)

Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...

Naomi - i think mine's like a combined christmas/birthday slump. I wouldn't be surprised to find that it happens to me the same time each year

Alex - thanks! I'll try!

Roxy - me too! I'm super excited and nervous

Al - i hope to!

Lindsay - thanks! I hope to be able to do a blog post on it. Or at least an update

Hart - very, very true. I will spread the word Post-Haste!

Kittie Howard said...

Enjoy your break, Sarah! I think it's good to take a bit of time off and just kick back. Hope you return to the computer revitalized and rarin' to go!

Breaks are very important and a necessary part of a blogger's life. :P

Talli Roland said...

Aw! Lots of people taking breaks these days. I'll miss you!

yokohamamama said...

You go take you a *good* break! I just did, though an unintentional one due to flooz (me and two kids, down for days... and it sucked just exactly as much as you'd expect it would:-))

Trisha said...

Sometimes, a break is just what's needed! Take a breather, and you will be back better than ever no doubt :D

Hannah Kincade said...

OH this is why you have not post for today!! LOL! I think you should take a week off regularly, like I'm doing. I definitely feel more recharged as far as topics and crap go. JOIN US! and my "us", I mean, me.
