The struggle is real…

I have really been struggling to come up with things to write this week. I have been looking at all my upcoming scheduled posts and there is barely anything there. Usually I’ll have quiet a few posts as I try to write as my brain thinks. Otherwise I just forget to write about them. I have about 4 posts left and then that’s it and I just cannot think of anything else to write about.

IT IS SO WEIRD!!!

It might have something to do with this past week I haven’t really been “getting out there” so to speak. I have been in such a slump this week, I think it’s got a lot to do with having two jobs and yet not getting shifts, so it feels like I’m trying to get my life moving forward and it’s just not happening. Hence the posts about “Getting Started” because I want to do something else in the meantime. I’m hoping that getting my first foot into the Library door, now I’ll be able to go for more permanent positions and then feel more “set up”.

One of the ironic things though is that I have actually been getting more readers recently, so now the pressure feels on to being you all much more exciting posts.

I think that I need to get back to what I started writing this Blog for, to bring you, the readers some happy and fun news. That include things about books. Which I should be able to focus on more now that I’m actually working in a Library. I haven’t even done a Random Literature Quote since last year!

SO now it’s time to focus again!

How do you get out of a reading slump?

Reread a favorite ~ Stop reading for a while ~ Read a brand new book 

Or something else?

I can’t believe that I keep forgetting to do these, I guess I’ve been in a This or That slump myself!

Too get myself out of a reading slump the first thing that I usually try is reread a favourite book of mine. These can be from any section of my books, even if it might be considered to be “lame”. The other thing I’ve noticed when I think about it, not only do I usually reread a favourite, but it has to be a particular favourite. Sometimes I feel to get myself out of my slump, will also depend on my book. If I want to something easy or fun to read to help, or just just to get myself reading again, I might read something like my new found Babysitters Club books. If I want to get more into fantasy type reading (to maybe inspire myself to write as well) I’ll start reading maybe something like The Hobbit.

I could never stop reading, because that’s usually how I get into my slumps in the first place. I wouldn’t be able to read a new book to get myself out of my slump. I don’t know where the new book is going to take me, if I don’t like, I would probably stop reading for a while.
