How to survive a boring day

I wish I had the profound answer to that questions, but unfortunately, I do not.  I suppose being on this site (or on the internet) in it’s self is a partial cure.  I know the internet is a bit of a remedy for my occasional boredom.

I have been wanting to recapture the creative spirit in blogging that I once had many years ago, and I seem to continually over-think every single idea that comes to mind.  I think about writing a movie review, and as I run through how I would word it, the other half of my mind was say “That’s already been done” and I drop the thought.  I think about posting a new recipe that I have developed, and again, the other half of my mind says “Don’t give up that recipe just yet.  Keep it to yourself a bit longer” and I drop the thought.  It seems like every single idea I come up with, and my minds other half dismisses it before I can ever make any ground on it.  Damn you, you stupid internal editor!

I am making a bit more headway on my new blog project, UrbanCastle.net.  I just need to get through a bit more “mapping” and I will be good to go.  I am shooting for a launch of October 1st, and I also plan on launching the new Design By Kohler website at the same time.  That site is 95% complete and I just need to get a bit more verbiage put in place first.

On the writing front, I am looking forward to getting into NaNoWriMo again this year.  I completed 50,000 words for the first time last year and I hope to do it again this year, but with much more direction.  Towards the end last year, I seriously crapped out, and just got words on the page to hit my goal.  This year, I plan on taking it a bit more seriously.  I think my daughter is also planning on giving it a go.  Kind of exciting for her!  This will be her 1st year, and my 10th.  I’m excited myself!

Speaking of writing, I submitted a story to a new website called JukePopSerials, but was unfortunately rejected.  I’m not beating myself up too much about it though, as I know they were bombarded with submissions as it is a new site.  I will submit another few stories that might woo them into an acceptance!  Let’s hope at least!
