No, I'm Not Brain Dead

Yes, it has been over a month since I posted last.  I have had inquiries as to why.  Here are my answers in no particular order:

1) New Job-- The new job has changed my schedule.  Why I have more time at home, I have less time at home alone.  So instead of blogging, I'm hanging with the fam.  If you would have asked me why I haven't been blogging, this would have been my answer.  But upon some self-evaluation, I have realized this wasn't the main reason.

2) Bejewelled-- Damn it.  I found the gem swapping game on Facebook book again.  It had been a few years since I played.  But now that needle keeps calling my name.

3) The Real Reason--  I am a perfectionist.  My last blog was suppose to be the 1st of 3.  So while I had other ideas I kept putting them off thinking I need to complete the trilogy.  The 2 remaining topics are vast and I was trying to figure out how to approach them.  Days, weeks and now a month has past.  I have started one but I am not happy with it.  Sometimes, I lose focus of what this blog is.  While I enjoy writing it, it does get frustrating when you don't know how it was received or it gets very few hits.  ISB's  biggest day were when I wrote about my pending doom. I Have Been Given 11 Months to Live was the single biggest day  for my blog.  I don't know how take that.  Either people were concerned or they were looking for a juicy nugget to pass along.  Anyway, it doesn't matter ISB will continue with more frequent post to come.  Maybe I'll get to the social commentary maybe I won't.  If you're familiar with my brain, then you know I can't control which way it goes.

P.S.  In case you have been wondering, I let my deadline pass.  I could not agree to their terms. (Which means "No I'm not giving up ownership of my story")  Also for my guinea pig test readers (and you know who you are) The Book of Xi Su is currently in its third final draft.(perfectionist at work)  If you want an updated draft let me know.

Best of Luck to you.


  1. Very good to hear from you. For two weeks now we have been dealing with sickness and just plain yuck. It has put me in a "mood" so, although I am not a writer, I kind of understand what you are going through. You are very creative so it's hard to stay focused sometimes I am sure. I am glad to see your blog is still functioning. I was going to write something like "Wish I had a blog to read." and tag you but I don't know what kind of schedule you have and that is just rude lol.

  2. Awesome. Good to see you back. Hopefully the big gap will not happen again soon. Our skills improve as they are exercised.
