Dealing with bloggers burnout

Hey ya'll. It's been awhile since I stopped in, so I thought I'd better do something over here to make it look like I'm still among the living. I've been going through a major case of bloggers burnout the past couple of weeks, and haven't done much with any of my blogs. But, I'm starting to come out of it a bit.

I've been hanging out at a really cool forum called TalkWhatever. I don't usually do forums, as I never feel like one of the gang, but this place is different. They even let me have my own section for writers. That was totally cool. So, I've been the forum leader at the Writer's Block section. I've been hosting writing challenges, talking about ways to earn money through writing, and that kind of thing.

I've also been doing some writing on my own. Nothing that I'll ever publish anywhere, just some stupid stories to keep me from just giving up all together. I had to do something to get my mind out of the funk it was lounging in. Sometimes, I get to a point where everything I write has to sound like a fricking commercial. I think that was why I was getting burned out. I had to go find something to do to get my creative mind back on track.

I hate trying to be so "professional" all the time. I've never been the professional type. In fact, I've always been the kind of person who fought against the establishment. Had I been born 10 years sooner, I'd have been a hippy for sure.

So, anyway, I will try and keep this site updated a little more often.

LOL, trust me, it wouldn't be that much of a stretch. LOL. I'm damn near there now.
