  18. Zsuzsy Bee profile image87
    Zsuzsy Beeposted 10 years ago

    Charlotte I don't believe it after all the great stuff you pulled out of your hat. But here is a quick thought: Writers block is not something you should think about. The more you dwell on it the worst it can be. Give me a Hub on games for 7 year old little girls. Or what you had for dinner last night. Or the type of bird that flew by your window just a second ago. I got it better yet we haven't had an update on beautiful Sierra lately....How is that for an idea? zs

  19. gamergirl profile image61
    gamergirlposted 10 years ago

    It's not so much a lack of ideas, really, because there are soooo many games and topics I could write about.  It's actually sitting down and -writing- that's the issue.  lol  You do have a point, though, I should do a hub about my progress in training Sierra and my work on becoming Alpha in this training.  I really should review the Dog Whisperer and how his work has helped me.. that'd be a good hub!

    I had a friend who was a many times over published author and his answer to writers block or burn out was to sit down and just write something about your favorite subject or hobby. He said it didn't matter even if it was only a grocery shopping list for a special meal. He said it helps to take the mind off the negative. Just thought I would share that little gem with you. have a good day kiddo. zs

    Pete - that is a funny one.  I'll share with you hubbers my little joke I'm gonna play on my husband later today... *GRIN*  You know we already have 4 kids.... Well, my endocrinologist has asked me to go in for a blood test (related to diabetes), and I am finally going to do it today.  I started exercising again a few days ago and I've been really exhausted (falling asleep on the couch early, etc.).  I'm going to come back from the lab this afternoon with a little bit of "extra" news for daddy. LOL!!

    (on second thought... maybe I shouldn't joke about these things....)

    1. stephhicks68 profile image89
      stephhicks68posted 10 years agoin reply to this

      OK - I'm going to report on my April Fools Joke.  It was a tremendous success!  We work in the same office and boy, oh boy, did he fall HARD for the joke.  All I had to do was say that the lab called, and his face fell... He guessed right then.  I had to play it up.  "I don't know... maybe."  "We should confirm it with our own test...."  I had to put my head in my hands and pretend to sob so he couldn't see me cracking up.  When I lifted my head with a big grin on my face - he was soooo had!!  (I'm in for it now....) LOL!

    Today I went to my orthopedic surgeon for an appointment and told him that things were not very good with my wrists recovery. You must have seen him going around all the radiophotographies to see what was wrong with my wrists big_smile. I guess now I´ll have to change to another doctor lol.

    Funride!  You pulled an April Fools on your doctor?  LOL!!

    OK - I am totally geared up for the fools on my husband - I even told my mother, for goodness sake.  And I know he will totally freak.  I just have to practice my acting skills to keep that straight face long enough.  Maybe even squirt out a few tears.  I'll let you know how it goes later this afternoon...

  33. gamergirl profile image61
