Did you ever have one of those weeks where time seems to have slipped into a black hole? For the entirety of yesterday, I thought the day was Monday. I know I lived through the real Monday as I remember working from the corporate office and eating the lunch I put together Sunday night. Yet, the whole day seems to have dropped from my mind’s calendar, sliding Tuesday into the Monday’s slot. Needless to say, I thought I had another day to write a post for The Sarcastic Muse. When I woke up this morning and noticed the day was filled with my typical Wednesday meetings, that is when I realized I misplaced an entire day.
My sincerest apologies that there will be no typical TSM post about writing today. I am sure it will be missed as it has been a tad quiet around TSM HQ lately. The summer has been rather strange and crazy for all. That being said, as much as we love your support in reading our blog, it’s a beautiful summer day! You should be out frolicking through the fields and climbing trees, maybe writing in a notebook under the blue and sunny sky. Not sitting indoors, reading off your computer, phone, tablet, etc.
Though, if you are adamant about reading blog posts all day, check out these fabulous and fun writing posts:

Your post twisted a cold knot of dread in my chest. I am intimately familiar with the condition described – and frantically hoped it was just some benign flaw in my DNA.
Now, after but one Internet exchange, you also have the condition. It is contagious! And I will likely go down in history alongside Typhoid Mary.
I am so sorry, forgive me if you can.
A Hui Hou,
It is hard to be on the computer when the weather is nice so by all means – enjoy the weather.
Sitting inside at a computer on a beautiful day is maddening! Hope you enjoy the beautiful summer weather as well, Jen.
Thanks for the shout out, Amanda. I’m painfully aware of losing time. I desperately want to get back to work on my novel. However! I’m in Santa Fe on vacation with my husband and plan to enjoy that!
You are so welcome! It’s a great article. My life has been chaos this month. Looking forward to getting back to my badly neglected novel as well. July seems to be the anti-novel-writing month for many of us.
Enjoy Santa Fe 🙂 Safe travels!
