In a Slump

on July 25, 2014

Cat WriterNow what do I say?

Have you ever found yourself in a slump? Slumps happen. The deeper you try to think the lower you go into a seemingly bottomless pit. Somewhere there is a struggle. Maybe it is with time, perhaps it is the right words aren’t there, then, it just may be nothing more than summer heat!

Whatever the reason, you get behind…on everything, especially writing and blogging. Email is put on the back burner with Scarlet O’Hara’s words ringing in the background: Tomorrow is another day! The problem with that is the fact it becomes a daily thought to the point you simply want to delete the email account rather than struggle through now possibly thousands of messages.

blogger-catBlogging isn’t just writing and hitting publish. It is promoting others, visiting blogs for camaraderie with hopes of collecting insightful nuggets – personal gems of inspiration, commenting and replying to comments from new and faithful followers and so much more. On the outskirts peeping in the whole time is building/maintaining a presence on social media that eats away at the time often consuming so much that other things are left along the wayside.

I’m tired. There are days when I don’t feel like doing it all…Blogging (keeping up two blogs), Pinterest,, Facebook, Twitter, Tumbler, Hootsuite and so on and so on and so on. There are days when I simply can’t do it all.

But…I won’t give up!


THANK YOU to all my wonderful virtual friends who pick me up even when you don’t know it! THANK YOU for your visits, comments, following even though I have been neglectful in reciprocating the past couple of weeks. This too shall pass for tomorrow IS another day!

    Sharla, I’ver been so worried about you. You work so hard at doing so many things each week that it’s no wonder you’re in a slump. I’m falling down the rabbit hole myself butthat is due to si much work and deadlines and being so sick from the Lyme disease. Hopefully this will pass for both od us soon.

    Love, Micki

  3. I couldn’t possibly survive your schedule. I’m amazed that you are still standing and haven’t fallen over with exhaustion. Maybe you need to do a little bit less? Put a little less pressure on yourself? Just saying. Hang in there and enjoy the lovely summer we are having!

    Dearest Sharla. this blog post has shocked me. I’m not surprised you got to that point. I’m nearly there too and need to last for about two more months.
    I really hope you will take it a little easier. Enjoy your time – enjoy yourself – enjoy the beauty of nature. Your blogs won’t take off in the meantime, they’re still there once you return to them.
    Take care, please!!
    Sending you hugs!! 🙂
