I should post more

I know, this is my space, I can do whatever I want here, as much or as little, and so on and so forth. But I do value this space, this connection with other thinking, creating people. And I am not using it as much as I want to.

On the other hand, I'm doing more of window repairs, wall repairs, bathroom repairs, painting and plastering (well, that one's in the wrong order), errands, and stuff like dishes and mopping than I want to be. To say nothing of arranging for things like fixing squirrel damage or cutting down the old dying rowan tree before it falls on my car or somebody's house or garage. Somehow, when I get to the computer I'm tired. It takes a while to get into writing mode and I then try to turn first to fiction, and I rarely get focused for Live Journal after that. (And I won't even mention trips to the dentist.)

I know I will appreciate windows that have been tended prior to winter, and walls that look whole and pleasing, and bathrooms that don't leak, and not having my sparkly purple car crushed, and not having holes in my teeth, etc. Those are all good things, but they're not enough.

Maybe I can change that--at least, the not posting much part. Here's hoping.

In the meantime,

"Hi out there! I'm still here, and glad to see you."

Hi! Nice to know you're still here and thinking of us. I have been missing you.

You, at least, have reason for not posting due to excellent higher priorities. Which you are actually attacking rather than poking with a stick the way I tend to do. :~)

Don't worry. Do what you must. We'll wait for you.

What I'm doing feels very pokey (slow, that is). Even if I'm poking with plaster, paint, hammer, saw, and other more-useful-than-a-stick tools.

I know you all will wait for me, but more and more I'm feeling that in this instance, on my part at least, patience is not a virtue.

Only you can decide that for yourself, but try to be gentle with yourself while you're deciding. Okay?

Although if you'd mix pigment into the plaster,
you might save a step...

Nah--unpainted plaster tends to crack and peel and it isn't very washable.

I have to repair some plaster repairs that I didn't paint fast enough already. I'm not interested in repeating that experiment!

Thanks!

Really, I think the issue is that I know that interacting with people on Live Journal helps inspire my fiction, but I've been more active on facebook, which doesn't. Of course, clicking "like" on facebook doesn't take much brain power!

Post when you can. It's okay if it's often or infrequent.

I know what you mean! I am behind on even reading LJ, and I'm usually pretty current on that even when I don't post (and I so rarely post except about books I've read, these days.) But LJ is still my favorite site.
