I don’t know whether it is my youngest having chicken pox, (hence another week off school…) or the fact that I haven’t written a damned thing in nearly two weeks (by the time boy goes back to school, it will be THREE weeks), but I am feeling really quite hassled and upset by it all.

To top it all off, I was going to write a blog about how I didn’t have any motivation, inspiration or even stamina to write, when along came Plinky.  What? I hear you ask.  When I got onto my blog site, they were advertising Plinky with the byline – Suffering Writers Block?  Check out Plinky (or something like that).  So I did.

Mmmm, could be just the therapy I need.  The first question was, you are at your own funeral – what are people saying about you.  Hell, that made me smile, something I haven’t done in a day or two – could do with a little pick me up.  So I am guessing Plinky is a little like Twitter, in fact you can post your response to twitter or facebook.

Yes, I is liking this, I could do this every day… each day there is a prompt, and you can even suggest prompts.  You can friend people, you can follow answers… Yip, check it out at Plinky.

Okay, so perhaps today isn’t a total waste.  Having provided my answer, I feel a little bit liberated.  Not a lot, but I don’t feel quite so crazy anymore… Or perhaps I am, but I am just getting better at hiding it…

    lol I love your response to the question!!

    I hope you can fend off the crazies – I haven’t written much in weeks either, but I’m thinking about my stories a lot. Hope your little man recovers quickly!

    Yes, Plinky is fun. I have it bookmarked so I can look at it every day and see what is there.
