Monopolizing the Breakfast TableWednesday, June 19, 2013
So, instead of finishing up my breakfast this fine, fine morning, I decided to get another cup of coffee, and monopolize this little table of mine for a little bit longer!
Yes, I'm still in the hotel, but today will be our last day. Tomorrow we head home, but we will be stopping and doing some touristy stuff in San Francisco on the way.
Today, I just feel like writing.
It's been a long time since I've felt any real inspiration to write. I'm not sure what happened, but there for a little while I just felt completely zapped!
I couldn't seem to come up with any of my own ideas, and I hated that I was always using other bloggers' prompts and link-ups for the bulk of my content. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love doing them, but I wanted you, my readers, to see more original material from me! That was why I started this blog in the first place, to write, and to share my thoughts. Well, I guess I was still sharing them, but I was sharing my thoughts on other peoples' ideas.
When I tried to stop relying so much on link-ups, and life started to get busy for me, I lost all motivation to keep up with this blog. It made me sad, but I had such a terrible case of writers block, it wasn't even funny!
I realized though, that I really missed it, this whole writing thing, and I've decided not to be so hard on myself. I want to try to write more, even if I feel like what I'm writing about isn't that exciting, or might not be "good enough." If I wrote it, and I like it, then that's good enough for me! I may not lead the most exciting life, but that's why my blog title contains the word ordinary. I guess you know what you're getting right there, ha!
That's my summer plan, to just start writing more. As I've been brainstorming, I've decided that maybe I will host a link-up! Possibly. I've had a couple ideas, but we'll see if anyone wants to join in with little ol' me. Either way, there will start being new posts around here, and some of them may turn into regulars!
For now though, I am going to finish my breakfast and get on with my day. Since Dane is still working, and I've got all day to myself again, I think the beach is calling my name. I think I'm going to head back on down to Santa Cruz for the day, and get my tan on!
Cheers, and happy Wednesday!
