Not Very Chatty

Ever have that period of your life where you’re on autopilot?  You look at your e-mails and the things you should be interacting with.  You stare at them and read them.  You know something is supposed to stir in your mind or heart.  Instead, you hit the ‘like’ button because you can’t think of anything to say.  Words are distant in your mind as if they’re coming from underwater.

That’s where I am now.  I can barely hear the voices in my head this week and I’m struggling to do stuff.  I can fake it in the comments when reacting to people, but I think that’s my limit right now.  I’m just numb.  So, if you notice me not responding as often as I used to, here’s the reason.  I’ll try to repair myself as quickly as I can and be back to the blogging race for first comment, but I can’t make any promises that it will be very soon.

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  1. I know this feeling. 😦 Take your time…all of this blogs will still be here when you’re feeling more communicative. 🙂

  2. Went through that lately and I’m not quite sure, but I believe I’m slowly coming out of it. It’s a craptacular feeling though -_-

    Good luck on the self-repair.

  3. Me too. Most of this week has been like that – my brain’s just shut down even tho’ there are things I want to say or respond to. I put it down to some very intensive research I’ve been doing and my brain, such as it is, is saying enuff’s enuff. It’ll pass, you and me both.:)

    Give yourself a break, Charles :). None of us are machines that can be or that can act inspired at the flick of a switch. It sounds like you need to step away from the blogosphere for a while and do something completely different (maybe watch some old Monty Python). We’ll all be here when you get back 🙂

    • It’s not really an inspiration issue. I still have that and can write when I try, but there’s a lot on my mind that I can’t fix for a while. I can’t go into any more details than that. Sorry.

  7. We all have feelings of being overwhelmed/down/unfocused from time to time. Take time for you and regroup. There are squirrels in need of their master
