When You Can't Think of Anything to Blog About...Make a List

Five things I plan to do today:

1. Mail one of the large print books I bought at the library's used book sale to my mom. I plan to add a little plastic bag full of lavender blooms, stems and leaves from my three hardy plants.

2. Stop by the Farmer's Market to shop a bit, then go to Starbucks for a latte (and maybe a pumpkin scone if they have any). I'll be able to sit outside on their patio and watch the folks enjoying the Farmer's Market because they're in the same shopping plaza.

3. Pre-schedule a couple of blog posts for next week. My guest blogger on Thursday will be L. Diane Wolfe who blogs at Spunk on a Stick.

4. Knock three items off my To-Do List. One will be the bios for my husband and myself for that 50th high school class reunion. Why is that so hard?

5. Work on manuscript revisions.

It has been really hot here this week, so I pulled out a picture from last fall's Northern Colorado Writers Retreat to remind myself that cooler weather is just around the corner. Take a look at this one:


I feel cooler already.

A list! Amazing how the simple answers elude us. Like writing bios for reunions. Blow your horn you're entitled.

Patricia - I wish you well with that to-do list : ). I do that sort of thing myself to help keep organized. And thanks for that beautiful 'photo : ).

Love your list Patricia, that's a good idea if you can't think what to write about.

Revise away ... if you aren't so relaxed you take a nap.

Love the photo! Good luck with the bios - those things are hard!

Goody, just finished that reunion bio. Since hubby and I both graduated from the same school same year, and I couldn't get him to write his own bio, I wrote a co-bio. I will give him one day to edit and then it's gone.

What a beautiful photograph. I never thought scenes like this existed outside photographs in glossy books- now I know they do.

How did it go? And...thanks for the snow picture! I NEED to cool off--temps at 100 degrees here.

Alexandra Crocodile said...

Oh, I want to go to Starbucks as well! Too bad the nearest one is in Copenhagen:(

Ann Best said...

Oh! I get so many ideas for blogging from you. Mediocre writers borrow, great writers steal. I won't steal your pic but I've several awesome ones of my own, so I just may borrow, that is copy you.

Have a cool week.

100 degrees hot here in Cyprus. We rarely see snow, so thanks for the memory.
