4 Signs a Writer Isn’t Writing & a Blogiversary

4 Signs a Writer Hasn’t Been Writing

1. Butt cheek indentations missing in writing chair.















2. Spring cleaning nearly done, and it’s still winter.  

3. The laundry is done. All of it.


4 Writer can be found dressed as bacon while playing Subway Surf.


I’ve snapped these pictures the last few weeks as my Lazy Writeritis has grown out of control. 
BUT I told myself I could not post them until the problem had been solved...

So seeing them here is GREAT NEWS!

I had an awesome writing day yesterday, and here I am writing a blog post today even though more *lovely* *glistening* *please tell me it’s almost over* snow is eminent.  (Really we should all be happy this post didn’t look like a page of The Shining.)

More good news: Today is my 3 year Blogiversary!

WOW! I’ve gone through so many writing stages and so much growth in the last three years. I know call tons of writers my friends. I’ve helped other writers by sharing resources, critiquing and regularly laughing at myself.


This year is going to be all about Enjoying the Growth. I’m going to let a little publication-pressure roll off and just relish the days of letting my pen flow and becoming a stronger writer. 

Write on! Man, I could really use a few pieces of bacon...

  1. Oh my gosh, Lauri, thanks for making me laugh out loud and get little sprays of tea on the computer screen. We've all been there, well except maybe for the bacon, but still. I'm glad you are back to writing! Great post.

  2. In celebration of your 3 year bloggo-anno-versary I am going to open the packaoge of Oscar Mayer "Super Thick Cut" bacon that I found at the store. It looks like bacon is supposed to look - you know - not see through tissue paper thin!

    Your house is in fine, fine shape. So get writing!!

    Here's to 3 more fine years. Then 3 more, etc.

    1. Oh yeah, talk bacon to me Cathy! Put that in the pan too. Don't mess around with the microwave...though I've heard baking bacon is delicious but haven't tried it. Enough bacon, back to baking picture books. (not my best pun...)

    2. Oh yeah - I always bake the bacon. So much easier and less stove top splattery. And smells so goooood!

    1. You too? I don't know if I'm trying to make Spring come faster or what. I cleaned up the lightbulb closet, organized the batteries, wiped out the fridge, cleaned my makeup drawer, hung 2 new cabinets... yeah I've got spring fever pretty bad!!

  9. Bacon is my muse. So when I'm blocked could I hire you to skip around my front yard while wearing that costume?

    1. My rates are very affordable. I often skip for free, and I enjoy wearing bacon for no reason:)

    2. You're hired. While you skip, could you also make sizzling noises?
