My Twisted Writer Brain…

It Would Appear That My Brain Isn’t Working!

Almost a week ago I embarked on an adventure with my husband of twenty years. I’ll call this new endeavour The Empty Nesters Flee After Child Starts University.

It’s kind of funny actually because now I find myself tucked into a comfy cozy corner in the back of a twenty-four-foot motor home. If I don’t think about it too much it’s sort of romantic hitting the open road and seeing where the wind blows you.

The problem is me. I’m a writer. I have deadlines and projects on the go. How the hell am I supposed to work while I’m without internet and wanting to just curl into that little nook in the back and rest my weary–my oh so weary–brain?!

And–get this–okay this is a real issue…This thing called fresh air is invading my space and consciousness to a point of making me want to do things like hike or walk the dog. It’s ridiculous and distracting.

This is one of those “fresh air” moments. Ugh…I’m even smiling. Help me!

But the biggest, baddest thing that you can’t tell anyone that I told you–promise? Please don’t judge me but since we left on the said adventure we stop in the middle of the day for a nap! Wowsers!! I had no idea just how wonderfully satisfying it could be to tuck in with a book at 2 pm and drift off for an hour or two–like I have no cares in the world.

Who am I trying to kid?

This is not good.

Nothing is getting done.

I must get my brain working like a normal (lmao) writer again. You all know what I mean, don’t you?

Please tell me you understand. In the meantime I’m tucking myself into my own little heaven of fluff and fancy for a snooze. Shh…don’t tell.

  1. Yep, when I took the 2 summer months off work (tutoring) I thought I’d get so much writing done. Ran into the same problems you have, brain-wise 🙂 On the other hand, if you’re without internet access, it’s a perfect time to write–no distractions like Twitter, Facebook, online news and such. Maybe use those no-internet moments for writing … and upload your writing, then nap or hike when the ‘net is available? Just a thought 🙂

    1. Thanks for commenting Norma! I’m glad I’m not alone in this. It’s definitely an interesting experience. For the most part wifi is very spotty and not reliable. Good today tho! so yes it does make a difference without those “home” distractions too. I think my brain is in a bit of shock and has to get used to what is actually going on. We’ll see what happens.

    1. Thanks Heather. Yes, it’s an interesting way of life. Have already met many people who do this full time! Just gotta get my writing brain in order. Thanks for commenting.
