bedtime quickie.

Just a quickie before I go to sleep…

No no… not that kind of quickie. The dirty things post was last night. [Though I wouldn’t say no to that kind of quickie… alas, John is asleep and I’m going to need new batteries…] 

Totally fell off track there. Hey, it’s late. Or early. I’m back now.

I saw this tonight:

book hangover.

This is exactly what happens to me… with reading and with writing. I think even more with writing… I cannot let go. My characters all have a piece of me. I can’t say goodbye.

I wrote about this almost four months ago… when this blog was new and most of you had no idea I existed. But please click over and read it now.

I kind of liked that post. And it was among the earliest to get comments… all from The Lonely Author which I didn’t realize until I linked the post just now. [And if you’ve never been to his blog, go and read right now. Like, read the whole blog. I adore his writing. I bet you will, too.]

The image above and this post led me to revisit my earlier blogging days. And I realize I had a lot of posts in the beginning that I really loved. God, did I ‘waste‘ them when my audience was tiny? No… not wasted… but… I think you should go back and read them all… you know, in your spare time. [I would wink now, but I can’t physically do that.]

Must get back to my book now. xo♥


About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    When I start reading a book I immerse myself in it , to the exclusion of everything else outside of it , so I live in the book for a few hours or a few days , depending on it having 200 or 600 pages . And I read it fast , until the very last few pages when I realize it is ending and I don’t want it to , so I go very slowly there to make it last . But it has to come to an end . Still it will stay with me for awhile keeping me faithful to it for a few days 😉 and hangover 😉

    And no post is “wasted” , they will be revisited and appreciated a long time after they’re published , just like books 😉

  3. And it’s even worse if it’s a series! Then I never want to leave!

    Hey, you should reblog/repost some of your older stuff. I’ve thought about doing that myself. Especially on a day where your muse has otherwise flown the coop! We’d love to read them!

    • Oh my God, yes, a series is even worse! That much deeper in, that much harder to let go and move on!

      I love the reblog/repost idea. I’m going to have to go back to the start and remind myself what’s there. This little ‘hangover’ image brought me back to the one post I linked above… but maybe I have other little gems hiding back there. (And should I be mad at my phone for trying to autocorrect gems to germs??) 🙂
