Waving the white flag

Here I am, signalling a defeat of sorts. The last month has been hard on the blog. My number of posts has slipped from at least 20 a month to a pitiful 14 last month. That's not too bad as its still a post every other day on average.

But I want more. And I can't get more.

Buying a house took a much larger toll on my writing than I expected. Then came writer's block.

And then work started to hammer on me and my normal work days started moving from 8 hour days to 9 hour days and now I'm working at least 10 hours a day - plus my hour commute and then life stuff.

When I get home and start to relax, writing is the last thing on my mind. I watch an hour of TV, get a massage from the BF, and try to get some sleep before the alarm goes off the next day.

I hate not being able to write as much as I want. I hate not sharing.

There is some great sex happening still. Trust me, that has not been lost.

I just don't have time to tell you about it.

This "busy time" will probably go one for another month or so before I can even think about getting back to a normal routine.

I miss you. I miss writing for you.


  1. *hugs* I'll miss your writing as well, but I completely understand needing to tend to things "in the real world" first. I'll still be checking in every day or so. Ya know. Just in case. ;-)

    Stay SINful

  2. It's like a plague affecting ALL THE BLOGGERS. Life is weird.

  3. It happens. Take care of yourself! We will be here waiting when you get back to a normal schedule!


  4. It's called summertime slack. It happens when school lets out and life gets in the way for all of us including me. It will get better and we will be here when it does.

  5. Our own blogging (and reading of other blogs) has also taken a hit this summer. We can relate. Understand that every blogger goes through a period of time wherein they either don't have time to blog, or simply don't feel like it. Real life gets in the way. There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking some time off. Yes, you feel bad for being unable to share, just as we feel sad for being unable to enjoy your efforts. But just as guilt or obligation should never be motivation for blogging, we understand that a busy work schedule, household stress, and the need for different leisure activities beyond blogging take precedence.

    Yes, we will miss you during the next month, or however long it takes for you to resume blogging prolifically. But we understand, and we will be here when you have a schedule more suitable for blogging. None of us will forget about you, and if/when you find it suitable to return, we will be pleased to see you. In the meantime, keep up the exciting sex life! Enjoy it without the pressures that may come from blogging about it.
