Explaining…or excusing?

So, what’s the difference between explaining a situation and excusing one’s behavior? Anyone? Anyone? Buehler? Buehler? I have no idea >.< so…I’m going to excuplain.

Why haven’t I been blogging lately? Where am I? What am I doing? <–All questions I am certain you are dying to know.

The honest to goodness truth: I am discouraged and busy. This has been a rough year for me. It’s rough hearing “no.” A lot. On everything. It feels like everything good is happening for everyone else, and nothing good is happening for me. I know, I know. Whingey whiny Bethy. I so need to get over myself.

Anyone else feeling this way? Feel free to share in the comments.

We’re all in this together.

Try keeping your pen on that page, even though–like me–it seems impossible at times,
Beth

  1. YES. I’m feeling the same way. People talk about hitting a “reading slump,” but right now I’ve hit a “writing slump.” I have a book I should be writing, but I just… just… can’t. And then there’s the book that I’ve been querying, and it is indeed discouraging to hear “no thanks” over and over. Hang in there. We will get through. We will get there. In the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer. Oh look, I start quoting LOTR whenever I feel motivational. 🙂

  2. To repeat the trend here, YES. This year has sucked big time and it’s hard to stay motivated when I just want to curl up in the corner and pretend it will all go away. To complicate things, my anxiety attacks have started to rear their ugly heads again. So… that’s been fun. 😛

    BUT I can do this. You can do this! WE CAN DO IT!

    Prayers headed your way, girly-oh! ❤
