Attempt to start a regular blog, in the hopes to get through a bad case of writers block.
For the past several months now, I've been having an issue with writers block. What's worse is that every time it seems like its starting to clear up, I end up just staring at a blank page for several hours before closing the document and doing something else. Even coming back to it later, only to end up doing the same thing again.|
What's worse, the external hard drive I've been storing my work on is inaccessible right now, due to an issue with its directory. So I can't even get to it right now. Not even my notes.
So, here I am, bloging. Future posts may contain, well, just about anything. Opinions on various goings on. Opinions on various concepts and ideas. Things that I get exited about. Things I get annoyed about and want to get off my chest. Long winded questions. General ramblings... which I am now starting to do... again...
Well this is a start I guess. Fair warning that this is liable to be something of a bag of crazy weasels. Sometimes rabid. Sometimes cute and curios. But always a bit nuts.
Oh. my day started out terrible. Huge fight with my wife, though, we got it worked out. So that was ultimately a good thing, we kind of needed to get things out in the open, and we're all good now.
Followed by having to sift back through a article/listicle I had just finished writing, to rework my references, of witch I had forty one, to fit with the source format used by the site I submitted it to. I had written it sighting my sources as I would in a research paper... detailed, and at the end of the work... They just wanted a list of links at the end, with "(LINK #)" in the body of the text for each one.
Where did it get better? Well, after reworking my office a bit, and setting up my old laptop, I made a discovery. An old copy of the book I've been working on, the one for which the main files are stuck on a locked up external hard drive that I have yet to recover. Just the main file though. But it got me to check my Google Drive again.
Loe and behold, there it was. All my original files, as Google Docs, sitting in the trash folder. All I had to do was select them and hit "recover" and I have it all back.
At most, I may be missing a few note entries, and a paragraph of two.
I was working on a different blog entry before this, but it was turning in to just me complaining about something that I don't really feel the same about now. So, I'm scrapping it.
And with that, it is now four thirty in the morning. I am going to bed.
