When words escape…

Maybe it’s the blues from being separated from all the wonderful writer people after spending two 12-hour days with them at WANACon. By the end of the “after party,” we were all a little punch drunk—some more than others. But what happens at WANACon, stays at WANACon. No password, no recordings. Not that the after party was recorded anyway. *wipes brow in relief*

Maybe it’s the attic full of heating & air guys reconstructing the space (and making so much noise) to replace our dead air system. Yay for the freeze warning tonight! (NOT)

Maybe it’s that I’ve written at least four drafts for blog posts today and nothing feels right and one of my baby veggie pictures has gone missing (assuming, of course, that I actually took the picture two months ago).

Maybe It’s that I keep looking at my short bio and thinking that I need to change it since both our dogs have gone over that rainbow bridge. Sigh.

Whatever the case, I think a smile is in order. 😀

Good ol’ cheese grits with eggs and venison link sausage. Hot and steamy yumminess. Don’t need words now!

What are your plans for the week? What’s your favorite comfort food?

  1. I always feel a big let down after an awesome conference. I’ve been stimulated, and possibly over stimulated (LOL) by all the creative energy and time spent with the life minded. Give yourself a couple of days and you’ll feel much better! Hugs!

      It was such a good conference! I think a little decompressing and letting myself process all the content might be a good idea. There are some seriously talented people out there!

  2. Oh yum. Yeah, it’s called post-con blues. I get it every year when I go to cons. Lots of people do, really. Hang in there! And who says you have to remove your dogs from the bio? You can totally keep them there, as a memorial if you want.

      Thanks, Ryan! You’ve made me feel better about the bio. I really needed that.

  3. So sorry both your dogs are gone now. I know how hard it is. I agree with Ryan. Leave the reference in your bio. And put them in one of your stories so they’ll live forever. I’ve done that, and it’s kind of neat.

    Glad you had a great time at WANA Con. I couldn’t go this time. There’s so much to absorb that you do need some time to collapse afterward, then go back later and listen to some of the recordings to catch anything you missed at the time. During long conferences like that, I find my mind wandering when I get tired, and I have to snap myself back into paying attention!

      Thanks for the sweet comment about the dogs. **HUGS**

      You’re right about absorbing a ton of information. I’m giving myself a week and then I’m going to start watching the recordings. 🙂

  4. It’s coming down from all that adrenalin high, I guess. Like a sugar crash.

    That picture really made me smile… and hungry. The last time I had grits was at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville. Seven years ago? That’s what it feels like. It was the year before it flooded. They were sinfully divine. I think my favorite comfort food is mac ‘n cheese of the homemade variety. 😀 Yeah. That sounds about right. In truth, I struggled with the blog posts this week.

      It is like a crash! You are so right, Elen! And homemade mac ‘n cheese is the best comfort food.

      Here’s to a better week of blogging! 🙂
