I haven’t been exceptionally busy, but any ounce of my creative writing brainpower has been put towards the book (currently stagnant) or writing samples for grad school (will or won’t I apply?). Though this blog has mostly been neglected, I still think about it often. Here are some posts ideas I think about writing, but immediately scrap. I figured if I listed enough of them, it’d be almost like taking the time to write one out.
Selling Horses Is Hard – An Expose on Maturity
This would have a lot of restrained whining and a desperate attempt to be an adult instead of the long rant of desperation I would like to write.
Men Are Stupid and They Don’t Know What They Want
Title pretty much sums it up.
Psychotic Breaks With Red Wine (And Other Ways to Shock Your Friends)
Dramatic re-enactment of my last Friday night. Includes screaming about how I hate everything, have a chronic illness that’s impossible for me to actually have and some tears.
Why Donald Trump is Damaging to Little Girls
Jokes aside, I feel pretty damn strongly about this one.
A Triage of Milestones and Holidays Still Suck At Year Two
Facebook notified me that I got engaged seven years ago yesterday. My wedding anniversary is next week. Tim’s birthday is the week after. Let’s not even talk about the holidays coming up. Pass, please. Hard pass.
How To Not Stand Out at a Hunter/Jumper Show
Short story? Wear sleeves, black/navy/white saddle pads and don’t complain about how much better your discipline is than ours.
How Many Halloween Celebrations Can I Squeeze Into October?
The answer is a lot. One for dogs, one for horses, one for adults and one for little kids. Bonus content – who can come up with the best punny dog costume? Current options are Jurassic Bark, Game of Bones and Harry Barker.
I hope to get the blogging mojo back 100% soon, because I love this little space of the internet and the people it’s collected around it. Right now the horse world is boring or not to be blogged about, and life outside of that seems sporadic and crazy (or also not to be blogged about). Know that while I’m floating in my SS Struggle Ship, I’m still reading your blogs and following along your adventures.
