Hello everyone, we interrupt your regularly scheduled blog posts to bring you this special announcement. I’ve been nominated for a Sunshine Blogger Award by Ishaan from Ishaan’s Blog. I very much appreciate your thoughtfulness as I have never been considered for these kinds of things before. Again, thank you for thinking of me.
Ishaan is a writer of both fiction and poetry who has an immersive and vivid writing style.
Unfortunately due to time and personal constraints I have decided not to participate. As some of you know I have ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). The Sunshine Blogger Award is about spreading happiness and motivation, but the thought of participating in this kind of event makes me anything but happy and motivated. These things just tend to exhaust me, I know for some of you that doesn’t make any kind of sense. All I would have to do is answer some questions and nominate eleven other people. But for me, right now, that would be like climbing mount Everest. People and interactions, even through the internet make me nervous and tiered most of the time.
This is a hobby blog, and for me to keep motivated I need to make sure everything I do on here is fun and interesting for me. And the thought of having to respond to this nomination has been nerve wracking, not fun. I hope none of you are offended, this kind of an award is important, and should not be overlooked. I just can’t do it right now.
If you want to learn more about what the Sunshine Blogger award is about check it out here. And you should defiantly check Ishaan who nominated me.
Thank you so much, I’m sorry I couldn’t participate.
Paints the energy,
On my skin.
And shows my exhaustion,
Despite my best efforts,
To hide that truth.
Chaos will arrive soon,
And all I want to do,
The song of fire,
Burned into your heart.
The moment of insanity,
It’s will it will impart.
To burn out the darkness,
To burn away your art.
To seek eternal blankness,
Always to depart.
I see a light shine,
Glistening in the darkness,
Strange, it’s just a dream.
Hello everyone, more of a blog update then a blog journal today. Thanksgiving is coming up and I am feeling a little burned out. So I’m going to just have one poem this week and I’m going to take the rest of the week off from blogging. If I have the energy I might do some reblogs of some of my old stuff to fill the space.
Honestly I’ve been trying to branch out more to write a wider array of things. But I’ve been struggling to come up with anything that would work in this format. I even thought about doing podcasts of some-kind since wordpress has the functionality for that. But it would just be one more thing I have to worry about on a weekly biases.
In addition I’ve been working on my book, and while that’s a fun writing project I hesitate to post any excerpts from my book here. Maybe I’m just paranoid about that sort of thing.
At the end of the day I’m one person with a full time job and a lot of other side projects so this sort of burn out is probably something I should expect to happen and have a back up plan for, like maybe some kind of bank of poems I can pull from to post during times when I just can’t get my act together to write.
Oh well the tl;dr is, only one poem his week, maybe I’ll do some re-blogging of some old stuff if I have the energy.
Until we meet again everyone.
