I think I will write about something and find I can't find enough words or interesting thoughts on paper (ie type on my keyboard to see it on my computer screen). I then think I will write about something else and again I end up with a blank screen. 

I have tried several times over the past few days and each time: blank. I could write about chocolate and how I try to eat enough to make up for the years that I was virtually without (I am not progressing far, although I am doing my best). I could try and write about my lack of training during the last few weeks. No swimming, cycling or walking has been done for a while now and it needs to change fast. 

I could try and write about our new rota, but that means writing about work and that is boring. Or I could try and write about one of the three projects I have going on now. The first one of course is the two books I am writing about my family, although I have not done much lately. I had better start again if I want them finished by the summer!

My second project is the triathlon that takes place in June and in which I am going to be participating. As I said: I need to get back to training. And my final project is something that is taking up my evenings and it's all about mice. As soon as I have more to tell/show on that project, I will let you know. 

In the mean time however, I have managed to get four paragraphs on my screen and am working on my fifth. Better find some photos now!


  1. Mara you are a busy and active young lady!! I know you look forward to warm weather and all the things you have planned.

    As Ginny says, one of the best ways to get over writer-block is just to write; it doesn't matter what comes out. You did just fine here!!! I do think a paragraph or two explaining the first photo would be in order... just hinting! YAM xx

  5. Yeah Mara ........ that first photo???????????????? We need to know!! Mum and I love that last photo of you ...... you look so .... well ..... bemused comes to mind!! Nice pic. When the words don't come just put show us some photos. We always love to see your photos.

  6. When all else fails, bloggers can write about not writing.

  7. Writing something worth reading is tough lots of days.


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
