Quiet Week

Good Vs Evil (Homer Simpson)

Good Vs Evil (Homer Simpson)

Barely a peep
From the Internet this week
So quiet
Makes me want to start a riot
Did I get work done?
Did I manage to have some fun?
I didn’t really take account
Felt like the usual amount
Perhaps I’m getting lazy
My thoughts have been a little hazy
It’s hard to post every day
Especially now that I behave
Did that really rhyme?
It does for me this time
Today I get some air
Feel cold upon what’s left of my hair
I wish to return in good cheer
This week has taken its toll, I fear


I have no idea why I picked the Homer Simpson picture.  Anyway, I’ve had a crappy week with my plans constantly falling through.  I’ll go into it more during my goal post tomorrow.  Things have been quiet.  My blog, my sales, my mind, my energy, and nearly everything else.  The toddler has been the most active.  I wonder if I’ve fallen into a rut with this blog even though I enjoy every post I write.  I should probably save that for tomorrow.  Well, I’m off to see if I can bike with a massive head cold.  Looks like I did get that disease I was joking about this week, Ionia and Greg.  Advil is my friend.

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.

    Aww.. sorry you’ve not had a great week Charles and I guess the cold really doesn’t help. Perhaps the bike will sweat it out!??!! I think that we all have peaks and troughs of weeks – I hope that the next one is better for you. 🙂


    • This was a trough that broke the Earth’s crust and then tried to bury me. At least mentally and emotionally. Next week has no real plan since it’s just writing, promoting, and I’m petitioning to make Valentine’s Day a family one this year. The bike might not happen until the afternoon when I get the house to myself.

    I like the devil and the angel on his shoulders. Constantly waging war in my head. What to do, what not to do. Peace. Hope this next week turns out better for you.

    Sigh. I’m sorry your week wasn’t great. I hope this coming week will be better. I can relate to the trough. It’s been that way for me this week.


    • This week should be better. The coming storm seems to have shifted direction and all I have planned is book writing since the following week is Winter Break for the munchkin. I’ll have to stock up on cupcakes.


  4. When you asked for quiet, you forgot to specify in terms of sound, not sales and related activity. Murphy and his law will take advantage every time. Hopefully, it’s just one of those valleys and you can look forward to a hill to follow it, sooner rather than later, if possible.


    • I know. Serves me right for not being specific. I’m tempted to write a post for tonight about the inherent paranoia in being an Indie Author. I ranted to Ionia about yesterday, but maybe it’ll be an interesting post now that I’m saner.


  5. I like the poet in you, Charles. 🙂 Here’s to a better week. It starts tomorrow!!

    Personally…I think the problem is called Mid-Winter Blues…nice poem…I got this as a daily digest and I just realized that I’ve read your more recent posts before this one…so it’s kind of like traveling in time…I read above in a comment that you “may” write a post on the paranoia of Indie Author…and I’m here in your past to tell you oh author do so as you did and it was a great post. 😉


  7. chin up, Charles. I believe in you
