Wednesday Musings

I wrote a blog, set it to post and hit publish. Then I got a timed out message and the blog vanished. I waited to see if it would materialize in an hour or two.

Nope, gone like magic and I started to get a little worried. Because, well, remember that book I’m listening to that was annoying me because the heroine kept harping on being depressed and not taking a shower? It’s gotten way more interesting despite the repetitions driving me batty. The latest being “You feel me?” about twenty two thousand times. But the mystery character that I speculated might be a ghost? She turned out to be a character from the heroine’s first and only, badly written, Regency romance that nearly killed her writing career before it began. Then more characters began showing up from her best-selling paranormal books. Its an eclectic mix of fictional characters, and they’re all there to help her solve her problem…and creating a bit of havoc along the way. It’s getting funnier by the chapter.

At least it was funny, until my blog vanished and I started looking around for my characters. Like Phoenix Torq from the Wing Slayers. He’s got a mile wide mean streak when it comes to me. And that man holds a grudge. In his view, no amount of physical problems should stop me from finishing the series, especially when they’re are more witches that need to be rescued.

Or Eli who’s really pissed I stopped writing during his story. I’m regretting ever giving him that whip that he can’t get rid of. I mean that really pissed him off, and if he turns that pissed off whip my way…shudder. I don’t want to think about that.

Or Ram whose been waiting for-freaking-ever for his story. If that man were to cross over to my world…I’d have to talk fast and made rash promises about writing his and Ginny’s story or my body would vanish like my blog.

So here I was really enjoying the book until my blog disappeared and I’m thinking Phoenix did it just to open the doorway between their world and mine. I wonder if my doctor would think it’s strange if I asked him to write a note about my physical issues to my fictional characters I’m worried might be haunting me?

Or maybe he’d suggest I stop reading paranormal books, LOL!

Happy Wednesday!

P.S. This time, I’m posting it now, rather than scheduling it. I’m hoping to get it live before any fictional characters snatch it again. And no, I haven’t been drinking, why do you ask????

    Man…I’m tellin’ ya. Fictional characters are pushy! They want what they want right when they want it and they don’t care who’s been in line longer, where your head is in La-La-Land brainspace or if you can lift your arm higher than your waist because you’ve been sitting at the keyboard staring a blank page for so long your shoulder froze. I mean, seriously! They need to get with the program.

    Of course, when they decided to shut up, I gritch about that too so I’ll sum it up this way, since they can’t win for losing: Bless their hearts!

    And yes, that’s a southern thing. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Oh no! Those naughty Wing Slayers messing with you :wink:. You really did put a nice positive swing on the missing blog.

    As for that current read – I get so annoyed by repetition too. To follow along with your writer and “you feel me?”, we have a new weekend weather guy. He’s a young guy, attractive and smart. I was all set to give this guy the biggest praise to hubs when he said for, at least the 25th time in 3 minutes, “that being said.” I lost it. Funny how stuff like that can drive us nuts.

    I hope your week is going great. Have a nice evening!

    Silver, I think “Bless their hearts” covers it! I agree that the other end of silence is just as maddening.

    I have to gently point out to us that it’s really our fault for creating pushy characters :-)

    Viki, the blog wasn’t that important, so why not have fun with it :-)

    The “That being said” would drive me crazy too. It’s filler. I know because I’ve used it, LOL!

    My week is going pretty well, hope yours is too!

    Argh! I’m sorry that happened with your blog. I hate when I lose anything I write, because I can never seem to recreate it once it leaves my fingertips. I hope it wasn’t your characters playing tricks on you. They really need to just let you do your thing until you’re ready to write again. Unless this is coaxing you back… then yay. ;o)

    B.E., we all go through the weird vanishing documents. I can usually recover them on my computer, but this I wrote in the word press site, so that’s always a risk. I just get lazy and then pay the price :-)

    They would coax me back if they could because I hate leaving the series unfinished. But my body isn’t cooperating as of yet.
