Brain Sprain

Ever since I started this blog I have had major writer's block. I usually have a lot to write about and can think of something pretty easily. I have started about three different posts and deleted them. I have thought about writing about photography or introducing you to my ministry. I have thought about writing about the movie I went to see last night and the disappointment I felt over the changed ending from the book. I have thought about writing about my children, my husband, my friends, but once I sit here I draw a blank. Granted I have had very little time to actually sit in front of my computer. I usually do not blog much at all during the summer being that we all move out of our home and into a summer camp. This summer the camp finally got high speed internet rather than dial-up, so I thought blogging would be a breeze and a much needed outlet for me. My husband's ministry at the camp is very time intense. Therefore I take on a little more responsibility with the children, plus try to help him, so free time is pretty nonexistent. Although, this summer I am trying to make it more of a priority. I just really need a little time alone everyday. I am much more of an introvert than an extrovert, and while I do love the people we minister with and the campers we have, sometimes I feel a little "over-stimulated" by it all. So maybe that is why I am drawing a blank as far as blogging lately. Maybe I have a brain sprain from interacting with so many people on a daily basis. During the fall, winter, and early spring I hole up alone in my home with my children. I lock the doors and ignore the phone and outside world. It is a beautiful thing. Anyway, instead of rambling on about nothing, I am going to go find my hubby and see what is next on the agenda for tonight. I actually think this was pretty therapeutic - taking ten minutes to write about nothing. Maybe I will feel more inspired later, and if not my blog will patiently wait me out until the fall.

Your new blog is so pretty, Tiffany :o)
I can't count how many days I sit down with such a desire to write, to make sense of life, to get my thoughts out there and just can't! Guh guh! It makes me so frustrated. Or even worse, I'm in the middle of life and think of a FABU blog post and then when I finally get those minutes to park in front of the laptop, it's gone or just won't come out organically.

I'm glad you took a few minutes for yourself tonight though and I hope you enjoy the rest of you week :o)

Totally know what you mean. I get writer's block all the time, I've had it all week, and then tonight I got home & something to share just came to my mind - I'm glad you shared what you've been doing, though - it's always nice to hear from you. :) Hope your summer is going well! :)

Please do write about photogrpahy (my husband and I just got a Nikon D60 and are trying to learn how to use it), your ministry and whatever else!

I'm an introvert as well. I love time with others, but I absolutely need time alone to process everything, and not become overstimulated as you mention.
