I enjoyed sharing all my favorite movies so much that I decided to do the same with books, because I LOVE books with all capital letters! The hard part is, of course, choosing favorites because it’s somewhat arbitrary and highly dependent on my mood. These are my favorites at this moment, but if you ask me tomorrow, the list could look very different because my mood shifted, I read a new book or just because. And that is exactly how it should be.
My love of mystery/thrillers is well documented, but I may have finally broke myself. Yup, I read one too many books about actual bad hombres and got scared silly. Feeling paranoid, I looked at every single person with suspicion and fear and considered hiring bodyguards to walk to the store with me. I even bribed my cat with some treats to protect me against any unwelcome persons. Okay, the last one is a lie. Maybe the last two … maybe.
People, I got it: blogger burnout. It isn’t even that I suffer from writer’s block or a lack of things to say, but I feel blah (not depression blah, normal blah … maybe), which made it a real battle to sit and write. My normal response is to not write, which I obviously have been doing, since forced writing has a certain stench to it or least mine does. And while I wouldn’t mind taking a (longer) break, I decided to make lemonade out of lemons and write about dealing with blogger burnout, because every blogger deals with it at some point.
My original plan had been to write a more personal post today but when it came time to put fingers to keyboard, my enthusiasm waned. I didn’t have the words or heart for it. Or maybe I wasn’t ready to really dig into my feelings yet. So I put it aside for another day. It will still inside me, whether I like it or not. Thankfully, I knew exactly who to steal … I mean borrow from for today’s post. 😀 Erin did a fun post on movies last week and I can always talk about movies. Always and forever.
One of many things I love about blogging is all the connections you make and how helpful so many fellow bloggers and readers are. You can raise an alarm and people will answer your call. Well, I need your help! Don’t fear — I’m not in trouble, nothing nefarious or diabolical is going on. Nor am I one of those annoying people who say they need help but then only give cryptic hints. Nope. I’m going to share my questions/needs with everyone because you have the answers I seek.
It’s time for another coffee talk with Tanya. Where I talk about what’s on my mind, also known as random thoughts. Ramblings. Or a whole lot of nothing. Or everything. It depends on your perspective. 😀 Now go ahead and pour yourself a big mug of coffee (or tea or whatever your drink preference is) and get cozy. This is what’s on my mind …
