Why I'm not Writing

I haven't written anything for, well, more than I'd like to admit. I could list a bunch of excuses, work, kids, etc,. But the real reason is this:


Every time I try to write, Ick ( manifestation of my Inner Critic) hops onto the keyboard with open jaws and nips at my fingertips and laughs at my pathetic contribution to the written word. And let me tell you, it hurts typing with this little bastard snapping away at each word, phrase, paragraph, page or idea. Writing this post was particular painful and required several band-aids. I may have passed out once or twice from blood loss......

Anyway, Ick has been bullying me for too long now and frankly, I've had enough. So, instead of avoiding Ick, or pretending he doesn't exist, I've decided to make peace with him, embrace him, and take him with me on vacation. Ick shall travel with me for a few weeks and he will either become my best writing buddy, or get smashed somewhere between Paris and Florence. ;)

I've shut off comments because I can't visit today, but I do thank you for stopping by, wish I could do the same but I'm a terrible blogger during the summer. However, things should get easier for me when our B&B season closes, end of September. So until then, I wish you all a safe, productive, and inspiring summer whether you're on vacation or not.  And if you happen to have an Ick like me who doesn't want to play nice or go on vacation, then try kicking it in the teeth.   ;)
