B is for Brain dead

Zombie DanicaI'm on Day Two of the A-Z Blogging challenge and I'm already brain dead. I can't think of a single thing to write about. True, this is Sunday night and I'm cheating by trying to get all of my posts pre-written, but I'm afraid that if I don't, I'm going to forget and not have my posts.

So here's what I'm doing this fine Sunday night on Easter. Hubby is in bed. Cowgirl is in bed. Princess is sitting next to me doing her reading exercises. My Peeps are eating. The dog is upset because Princess is in his spot. With tomorrow being the first of the month, I have a lot of stuff for work that has to be ready for first thing in the morning. Since work is on Eastern time, and I'm on Mountain time, I'm never conscious before the work peeps demand that I have stuff done. My solution- have it all ready the night before. So that's what I just finished doing. Everything for work is set for tomorrow and looks good. So when I wake up in the morning, I won't have a million emails saying, "where's X?" Why? Because it's already done.

Wow. I really have no point to this blog post. I tried, I did. But I'm really tired. I really do look like the zombie me. Maybe I will come up with something more entertaining later.

In the meantime, tell me how you handle being braindead and unable to think of anything creative...

I am definitely brain dead after being a teacher every weekday. I think family is the the only thing keeping me in the living sometimes. Friends and colleagues do help a lot too. Staying creative I think is about being fearless - having the courage to accept that everything you write is not literature. Anyways, I like the braindead zombie photos! Now thats being creative. Looking at the photos, I think you already know how to stay creative - try another creative outlet! All the best Cheers!

This is why I have at least rough versions written up through J. I know that I have 2 good days a week to get this done. Preperation is the key if I want to make it through this without every letter being a synonym for "I got nothing". Maybe that could be it's own theme. Hang in there. :)

I have the same problem most of the time, which is why my blog sometimes goes for several months without a post! For this challenge, I've started a running list, and when I think of something to write about, I write the topic next to the correct letter. I'm hoping that I might even be able to start a few topics in advance, but that's mostly wishful thinking!

Right about now I'm drained and brain dead. Did way too much over Easter.

I'd be brain dead after being a teacher too!! I really respect our teachers because you guys put up with a lot. I like your idea of finding another creative outlet. Thanks!

That's a great idea. My plan is to get as many as I can at least thought out, so here's hoping!

Tasha, great idea! Thanks for sharing!

I like all of the suggestions above.

Also, sometimes when you're really brain dead, it's a good idea just to get some sleep. (So long as you're not staring down a deadline.)

Picking a theme has helped me with the blog posts. Since I'm doing spiritual insights, I just look alphabetically in the concordance in the back of my Bible (is that cheating? :) until something jumps out at me. Usually it's something I'm dealing with personally thus on the top of the brain vomit in my head. :)

The funny thing is everyone can relate to this!! So, great job! :)

I think that's a great plan.

I'm doing a similar thing with scheduling out blog posts for the A to Z Challenge because I anticipate brain dead by the end of the month after having to keep up with posts/comments for my 2 week virtual book tour as well as entertaining my bff & her soon to be husband when they come into town to get married. Preemptive strike is sometimes the best way to battle it. Writing through never hurts either & I like that you did that with this post. :-) Keep going, you can do it!
