Time and days off

Why do days off meander away from relaxing to a multitude of things to do? Here I have this nice block of time but I keep switching from task to task to random amusement trying to fit things in. Though I haven't started the Wii up yet today, yesterday I spent some time on Mario Cart. I wanted to update my blog, the dishes can wait for later.

I want to be more regular with my blog. I do enjoy blogging and it's a nice way to keep up with other bloggers. Plus writing regularly is a good thing. I've been pondering the direction of my blog recently and I came to a realization this weekend. I like the general content I've been posting, and I'm still looking forward to the character conflict series I mentioned awhile back. I even have a post started saved as a draft. The tricky part is I have some really great thoughts while away from the computer for post wording that seam to evaporate once I'm at the keyboard. I'm tempted to buy a voice recorder to save said thoughts. That would be handy for things like cleaning and gardening.

I also decided that it would be fun to blog about books on occasion. I have a "to-read" list on Goodreads and it would be nice to share my reviews in my blog to. And it would be extra nice to read/review books by people I've met through blogging and online communities.

Then there are my cats. I'm thinking they might be mentioned on occasion in my blog, and mostly from the perspective of including pets into a work of fiction. I love animals, especially cats. If I'm not careful I could easily right too much about them.

Well, that's my post. I'm still participating in the Blog BBQ so I will be hanging around blogs today.

Hi Claire! I am also into fantasy. My current WIP is fantasy. Thanks for visiting my blog. Enjoy your Labor Day!

I think those would fine subjects for blogging.
And carry a small notepad for when those great ideas hit.

I would keep a small notebook with you for capturing your random ideas. I'd love to hear about some of the books you're reading! :-)

JL - Thanks for stopping by, I hope you were able to enjoy your Labor Day to.

Alex and Shannon - I have a small sketchpad in my purse, which is handy for writing notes. I also have index cards in there, and other random places. I should toss some cards and a pen in my gardening hand tool tote bag. That's one of the more fruitful times for my muse. Something about pulling weeds and letting my mind wander.
