So, I've been trying to understand what my 'blogger's block' is about. It's like I can't stand even loading LiveJournal (which is not easy task today, btw). I've been like a social hermit all summer, doing nothing but work, drive to the beach and play computer games.
I actually finished my sequel to 'Stubborn' and posted it a few days ago, and I started Part 3! And now I need to clean out some things in this journal and re-do my profile . . .
Watching Andy Murray unravel at the US Open today seems vaguely familiar to me. It's like I've had the same mental meltdown, but I don't have to do it in front of thousands of people.
It's not that I don't have anything to say. I have LOTS to say. I think about saying it. But I don't do it. I've practiced avoidance, when I really wanted to start a new community and get deep into fanfic writing again.
So today when I was looking at my profile, I noticed that batfic100
had been deleted. Deleted! The community where I spent so much time playing a year ago, a community with so many really wonderful drabbles from batfans. Thank goodness I loaded all mine up to a drabble journal, anticipating something like this might happen. Yeesh. If someone wants to let their community go, at least leave it up so people can still read the stories. Yes, I've let many groups and communities go dormant. But I haven't zapped them out of existence. It makes it so hard to want to post to a community where you don't know or trust the maintainer.
'Nuff said. I'm off to the shower! (Just like Murray soon will be.)
