Creating my happy life on the other side of fear.

Writer's block

I've had my first real writer's block this week. Did you notice? My last post was on Monday, and nothing since. Zip. Nada. I just couldn't think of anything to say!
My writing mojo was gone, no words left. Silence.

So I had the grand idea of doing a vlog. Obviously I had no idea how to do it - how do you record a video on the computer? But last night, I did manage to find the right button. Recorded a 3-minute video. Watched it about 5 times, didn't hate it, and decided to post it. And then it disappeared. Seriously, Windows 8 is kicking my heini! I have no clue how it works.
Tried it again today, but it somehow didn't work at all. Ugh.
Here's a confession: I'm really not good with computers. Everything I manage to put together is mostly due to sheer luck, lots of google advice, and some rare moments of insight.

But you know what?
Today is my birthday!
And I thought to myself: "Girl, you can't not post on your birthday!". I love my internet home, and all you guys, and I miss this part of my life.

So I did what any reasonable newly 34-year old would do: send my husband out for champagne, eat cookies for dinner, admire the Christmas tree and watch The Carrie Diaries. Which just happened to be about Carrie's writer's block (which she overcomes by writing about something that scares her, which is sex - it's all starting to come together!), so she helped me overcome my writer's block as well. Yay!

By the way: None of our plans for tonight worked out. I wanted to go for a nice dinner and see the Hunger Games. Loved the books and the first movie, and really really want to see the second one! Alas, we are having a deep freeze here. Even though we live in Canada, we live in the part where people are whimpy and don't like the cold. And right now it's -5°C with a wind chill of -20°C!!

So we did the sensible thing and stayed home. By the warm fire place. So cozy! The plan is to go tomorrow, but who knows what our excuse will be then.

Anyways: I'm back to blogging! And I am still working on the vlog, can't be defeated by a computer.

Stay warm!

Love, birthday girl

  1. Happy Birthday!! I wish you the best of luck with the vlogging - I'm still trying to figure out how to use the camera function on my computer. I can Skype okay, but cannot find the photo/video program anywhere! (I suppose that's where instructions come in handy...) Anyway, hope you have a lovely (and warm) birthday weekend :)
