Today, for some reason, I feel exhausted. I'm just worn out. Tired.
I'm tired of Twitter. Tired of Facebook. Tired of the Internet. Tired of it all, just to be completely honest.
I want to be a better blogger. I think it'll help me in the long run. I don't know that for sure, but it works pretty well for some people. So I'm trying to get to that point. And if I stick with it, I know I can.
But today, I'm tired.
The Internet....it overwhelms me on days like today. I waste all my time on it, waiting for my energy to pick up and waiting to get motivated. This never works, of course. I've heard it from some writers I respect the most, such as Stephen King and Roger Ebert and that guy that wrote The War of Art whose name I can't remember: the muse comes only while we are working, not to make us work.
I'm in a great mood. I'm incredibly happy with my life right now. So this isn't some depression deal.
Nope. Just....tired. It wears me out, life and connecting being so convenient sometimes.
So I'm going to eat lunch. I'm going to read while I do it, not watch TV. Actually, I'm going to read until the guy I'm meeting here at Panera shows up.
Then I'm going to go to the gym. Sometimes when my mind gets tired like this, my body is too well rested. I'll come home and work for an hour or two. I have lots of projects going on, and I'm stoked about them.
But right now, I need less Internet.
How about the rest of you guys? And gals? You bloggers, tweeters, Facebookers? What do you do on the days you just get tired of it all? How long does it take you to get back into it? And most importantly, why did you get back into it? What value does the Internet have for you, and why?
Thanks, look forward to seeing what everyone has to say.
