No Comment

I am not going to belabor this point, but, why do I no longer get comments on my blog? Is anyone else having this problem? I looked back on my early content and, although it has changed, it hasn't changed so much that people would be turned off by it--at least I don't think they would. So why is this? I wonder if there just isn't enough time in a day to read and comment on the many blogs that everyone feels they must skim...mine has got to be at the bottom of the list, since it is fairly personal and doesn't contain much useful information in the way of tips and so on. I do add links occasionally, but...

Okay--moving on. Has anyone had their writing head down such a dark path that they had to dial it back? I know I've been somewhat depressed due to no change of scene, lack of any rain, bugs that won't go away and heat that won't go away, but...does this weather thing really account for my latest book heading into a future world so horrible that I, as the writer, was horrified? And really--weather? Is that my excuse? I hate to even admit how much this summer and fall have affected my mood when there are so many terrible things happening across the globe. Well, maybe it's all of that too--plus the election that won't quit. Only a few more days, folks! But seriously--what do you do if this happens to you? Do you start over or let it rip? I let it go and then at the end I went back and tidied up a
bit..tried to end on a positive note. This has never happened before and I was a bit shocked at what dwells in the darker recesses of my mind and the fact that I enjoyed putting it all down on paper...hmm. What does this say about me? Or is the writing purging it from my system? Let's hope it's the purging and not the beginning of a writing career in horror!

We all have this creepiness inside us--whether we choose to let it out is up to us. Is it a good thing to let it out, or bad to even look at it? I don't know. But what I do know is that Stephen King has made a goodly amount of money writing horror...so...I'm thinking if it comes up, go with it. And if it takes over take it down a peg or two. What is writing besides exploring our own psyches within a fictional story of our creation? The muse says yes.

Thanks for reading. And as I intimated so subtly at the beginning, please leave a comment!
