I just wrote a post that was so self-pitying I deleted it.
I'm not even feeling that self-pitying, so I really don't know where those words came from.
It's wet and it's grey, and I was supposed to be having coffee with a friend. When that fell through, I eagerly pulled out my WIP, sat at the table (see, very proper, no slouching on the sofa... I was reading to work), and then... nothing. Which is why my deleted post was so whinny.
So, here's a song instead...
Don't forget the Imaginary Friend Bloghop this coming Friday. You can still sign up here.
This song gave me quite the Monday morning pick-me-up!!ReplyDelete
It's great, isn't it? Actually, the whole album is great way to start the week.Delete
Aw. We all have those moments. Music always acts as a great "pick me up" when I'm feeling down too. :)ReplyDelete
Already all signed up for the blog hop. Can't wait to hear about everyone's imaginary friends.
Yes, the music definitely helped, and I managed to write a bit more after I posted.Delete
It happens to everyone. I say use the sorrow. Skip ahead to a sad part of the story and write that scene.ReplyDelete
As a pantser, I'm not entirely sure what the sad parts are at the moment :-/Delete
I hadn't even heard this song before, but I really like it! I'll have to add it to one of my playlists :)ReplyDelete
I sing it a lot, but I don't know all the words, so I end up going round in circles :-)Delete
Hi Annalisa .. I hadn't heard the name or the song before .. but I love the video - great pics ... and mud everywhere ..ReplyDelete
Guess life down your way is grey, muddy and now raining even more .. keep cheerful and warm .. cheers Hilary
It actually hadn't occurred to me how fitting the video is. So much rain and mud today on my day off, but it was lovely and sunny yesterday when I was working - typical!Delete
I'd not heard that song before. It made me smile - thank you!ReplyDelete
Spreading the music - I might have found my new vocation!Delete
The right song can do wonders for a person's mood. :)ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to the Imaginary Friend Bloghop!
I couldn't live without music!Delete
Thanks for the reminder! I was looking at my calendar on April. Geez, a bit lost I was. :)ReplyDelete
I think there's something much bigger happening in April!Delete
I'm glad to hear your not really feeling that self pitying, Annalisa ;)ReplyDelete
And thanks for the song!
Self-pity is such a waste of time, I have no idea why my words were coming out that way!Delete
I hope tomorrow is much better!!!ReplyDelete
As tomorrow is today, I can announce that I met a friend for coffee, did some urgent shopping, sat in a doctor's waiting room for far too long, saw my mother and went to the gym... and didn't look at a single page of my novel. Tomorrow... I'll get to it tomorrow :-)Delete
Those "nothing" moments can make a gal mopey! But I personally love a wet grey day - we are in the midst of summer here and I'm so so so so over it!ReplyDelete
I'm like that too. I'm dreaming of summer dresses, but I know I'll be longing for woolly tights by July!Delete
Happens to us all. Tomorrow's another day!ReplyDelete
Allison (Geek Banter)
I've got my fingers crossed for tomorrow!Delete
I'm also in the doldrums at the moment. Hate them, but hopefully my trip to Germany will cure me.ReplyDelete
Hope you get going soon. :-)
I'm sure your trip will do just that! Have lots of fun in Germany.Delete
Thanks for the song. Don't worry, I'm sure you'll get back into the swing of things soon!ReplyDelete
Thanks Nutschell. The best thing about posting that song is I've been listening to it every time I log on to reply to comments! :-)Delete
I do hope you're feeling better now - fancy being moany when it's not even the first Weds of the month! xReplyDelete
I know, I should schedule my moans more carefully - although next week, I'll be in the middle of my blog tour.Delete
I love The Vaccines.ReplyDelete
I have those moments. I listen to music, nap, write, or watch a favorite show. Oh, and there are cute cat and dog videos out there as well.
They're fantastic, aren't they?Delete
I've been spending my time doing housework... not as fun as napping or watching TV though :-)
It happens to everyone. I tend to procrastinate and doodle online. Must get back to work. :)ReplyDelete
I am Queen of Procrastination!Delete
The Vaccines are awesome. I try my best to avoid self-pity, but sometimes it can really take over. Especially during these dreary and grey winter days! Or maybe I just use the weather as my excuse to whine LOL.ReplyDelete
It was a lot sunnier today, so I feel better. Did housework with the windows open instead of writing, but at least it was something useful :-)Delete
I doubt it was as whinny as you thought. But the song is a nice touch too. See you tomorrow at the hop!ReplyDelete
The bloghop's on Friday, Elizabeth! The music definitely helped. I keep listening to it :-)Delete
I have my post all ready for your hop. :) Hope your mood is passing. I have those moods, too. Although, today I was in a pissed off, impatient mood. I think it's finally starting to subside. If I eat some chocolate, it will probably disappear.ReplyDelete
Yes, I saw your Facebook post :-) Chocolate is technically medicine... until my scales started to tell me I was having too much medicine!!Delete
Looking forward to the hop tomorrow!!
It's a winter thing. Everyone feels whinny then. :)ReplyDelete
Oh yes, I always feel worse in the winter. It was sunny yesterday, and I felt much better :-)Delete
From time to time I allow myself to be whinny, but then I am a very strange kind of woman :). Usually when I am melancholic the writing is marvelous...I hope you'll feel better soon Annalisa.ReplyDelete
I agree, I sometimes write really well when I'm feeling depressed. But this time it is/was just 'meh'...Delete
Thanks for the song post! I find that I'm pretty whiny lately, and it has nothing to do with the weather. I do find that I write a lot when I get really anxious though, so maybe that's the key for me.ReplyDelete
Good luck, and I hope you can reschedule that coffee.
