Crumbs in my Keyboard

I stressed out about a blog this week. Between juggling nine million things to do, I ain’t got time for this. Well, maybe nine million is a bit of an over-estimation…it’s more than a handful and less than the amount of toys in the $.49 bin at Goodwill.


Seems like my Facebook page is flooded with back to school posts and pictures. Yeah, I took some quick pics of my kids. No, I did not post them…on purpose. Shocking, right? How will my children’s lives be complete without their obligatory “first-day-of-school” pictures posted? I am sure therapy will be needed, but my friends do call me a jerkface.


No new rejections this week, so that is a bonus. But it is still midweek, so there’s time for another to slide in. I did have time to rejoice with a friend of mine, Rosemary Johnson. She sent me a message about some great news in her little writing corner. And yesterday, she send another fantastic message, but I’m not allowed to share it. Let’s just say, woohoo!


I rewatched Suicide Squad over the weekend. Still like it and the Joker. Caught a bunch of nuances I missed the first time around but a second movie review would just be weird.


Let’s see…set some new writing goals. Worked on my fanfiction. Edited an older manuscript. Wrote a partial paragraph for my new contemporary YA book. Found a new sarcastic mom blog that makes me happy. Caught up on laundry (if clean clothes waiting to be folded counts). Planned exactly zero meals for the week.


My personal highlight of the week? I bought tickets to the 30th anniversary showing of The Labyrinth at our local theater next month. Going to surprise the spawn!


What’s the point of this post? I have none. And that is a huge no-no for someone (like me) who is trying to build an audience. I’m supposed to “have direction” and “focus” to build my blog readership. But after having some entertaining emails with someone I recently met, I thought I’d just let a little of myself bleed through today.


Today, this is me. I have no set course. I gave myself a pat on the back for shaking out the crumbs from my keyboard when the “K” key wasn’t working. And I’m just happy that I remembered to pack a lunch.


About sarahb5149

When tasked with how to describe myself, I get quiet, leading people to believe that I am trying to come up with something deep and meaningful. In fact, I am trying to decide which to display without confusing them. I'm a Christian. And that doesn't mean that I simply say it - I love the Lord and have figured out over the years that He knows what He's doing, even when I am stomping my feet or looking at Him like I have no clue what is going on (*hint* it happens more than I'd care to admit). Writing has been a passion of mine since I was a wee lil' thing; I kept my first poem in all of it's stammering, unevenness. Wife and mom, daughter and sister, aunt and Sunday School teacher, I adore the roles that God has given me. A bit of a sci-fi nerd, geek and self proclaimed dork, there isn't much that I won't try at least once...unless it involves mayonnaise because that stuff is just gross. View all posts by sarahb5149
