So I’ve spent the last few days staring at a blank blog post trying desperately to think of SOMETHING to talk about. I wanted to start the year off with a strong post! I wanted to have oomf! Or at least, you know, a topic.
I don’t have one.
January is tricky.
It’s full of NOT thinking/stressing/obsessing about a certain thing we will call PONIES. I am not ACTUALLY stressed about ponies, but PONIES will stand in for the thing I AM thinking about (I also can’t say what PONIES stands for b/c every time I do I have to pay Myra a dollar). My obsession with PONIES has led to many an hour sprawled on the floor watching HEX and drinking a b—um, a soda.
Aside from obsessing about PONIES, and editing LOVER BOOK*, I am also prepping for my trip to the UK (which comes right after another trip AND an NYC trip. February is indeed the month of move. This month, though, is about getting ready to move, and that’s less fun to blog about. It’s about reading every single book on my To-Read shelf because I can’t take them with me. It’s about packing, getting my life in order, finding a rhythm for the next few weeks, obsessively making to-do lists I’ll never finish…
Not very bloggable. I even scoured my “Draft” folder, where I keep blog topics, and came up pretty lacking.
Part of the problem is that my job right now is to DISTRACT myself from the internet, from PONIES, and this makes me far less interesting.
The only thing I have to show you are BUTTONS. Yeah, that’s right. Pins. In my attempt to avoid thinking about PONIES, I designed some pins and a special little bookmark for them to attach to (I don’t have a final cover, but needed some swag for a promo thingy coming up).
Anyway, a glimpse:
So, talk to me lovelies. What are you reading? Watching? Listening to? Any fun plans this winter?
DISTRACT ME FROM THE PONIES FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS GOOD.
*LOVER BOOK is a project I had to pause with only a rough first draft when my NW edits came.
