No matter what, no matter where

I have spent the last couple of months getting ready for this week. I have written all the Kink of the Week prompts and Sinful Sunday up until April and scheduled all the Sinful Sunday link pages too. I made sure to have plenty of images for Febphotofest and I have not taken on any paid writing work for the whole of February. So far so good. Everything has ticked long nicely whilst I lose my mind over Eroticon.

Yesterday Febphotofest came to an end. Hurrah, I had done it and despite it being challenge enjoyed it, then today I realise that it is Wicked Wednesday, there is a great prompt ‘One Man’ and I have jack shit time to devote to it and in a huge oversight nothing already written that I can post. Argghhhhh, what a complete an utter numpty.

I know what you are thinking; “Why not just skip this week, after all you have a lot on your plate and you already said you are losing you mind.” Indeed that does all sound like a very sensible plan and a much more sensible person than me would definitely do that but despite it sounds like the perfect solution it isn’t, because I have never missed a Wicked Wednesday, ever. Since Rebel started the meme I have joined in with every single week, sometimes following the prompt and sometimes doing my own thing but always linking in. It has become part of my blogging schedule and it is not one I am prepared to break. In order to keep me creating here in this space a long time ago I set myself minimum weekly goals which are that no matter what, no matter where I am, as long as I am alive and breathing I will post here twice a week; Wednesday’s and Sundays. For the most part I actually manage much more than that but they are my base thresholds and I have this weird and silly fear that if I miss one then everything will unravel and I won’t be able to put it back together again. I know, told you it was weird and silly and possibly but only maybe possibly a little bit of my OCD might be showing but there you have it.

I can’t not do this.

However I don’t have space in my brain today to sit down and write anything else but this rambling explanation as to why I am writing this ramble and why I can’t not write it. With me? Probably not although I suspect, or maybe that should say hope, that there might be some other bloggers out there who can relate to this little problem I have. If not, that is actually OK though, because I have always been me here on my blog, funny, sexy, flirty, dirty, slutty, sad, angry, confident, scared, worried, silly and many other things and this is just another part of what makes me, me!

    It so happens that I love your rambly brain, rambling writing, and completely off-topicness. 🙂 Thank you for all that you’ve done for this community – and if it means you ramble for a post, I think that makes it even better.

    • Molly Moore

      Sometimes you just got a let a good ramble out. It was actually quite cathartic writing this piece and I also made me feel about today as I achieved this simple thing plus a ton of other stuff too

    I love the simplicity of this post and the honesty, and am scratching my head to think how you are doing all of this with Eroticon a mere couple of days away!

    • Molly Moore

      I am not sure I know how we are doing it all but we are!

    I am on a self-imposed blogging schedule for the first time in three and a half years. There are good things about that, most notably the enjoyment I get from participating in community projects, but being schedule-bound trips my OCD in funny ways. (I’m freaking out about missing/not prepping for prompts that will happen in July, FFS. Like, I’m scheduling flights going, “I can’t fly that day because I won’t be able to schedule my post…!”)

    So I feel ya. 🙂

    I hope you are able to relax and enjoy yourself at Eroticon this weekend. I can’t even imagine how much work went into creating that event. You deserve to reap the reward(s) of your hard labor. HAVE FUN!!!

      Haha, I refuse to go on holiday somewhere that does not have wifi, yes I am THAT person and I make no apologies for it. I love what I do and a holiday for me includes being able to do the things I love.

      Ps… once I have July’s KOTW prompt sorted out I will give you a heads up

    This made me laugh…it is so you!

      I have no idea what you mean *grins

    Sometimes there is nothing as beautiful as the smile on a tired woman’s face, the smile we associate with the long days of child-rearing that shames the long days of work, the smile of patience and persistence, of love x

  • Marie Rebelle

    I totally understand your rambling and I totally understand every word you say. Like you, my minimum goal for every week is Wicked Wednesday and Sinful Sunday. If I skip one of those, it will just make it too easy to skip again in future.

    I will be thinking of you this weekend, and am sad that I won’t be there to give you a hug and celebrate a successful conference on Sunday night, like I have said we would do. But, I am definitely there in spirit and wishing you all a wonderful weekend. We will be there next year!

      I am going to miss you sooooo much this weekend. It won’t be quite the same without out, but I am going to hold to your promise of being there next year

    My non-negotiable is Sinful Sunday – although I did miss the week when I came out of the hospital from visiting my Dad and helping him plan his funeral and then got a message that a good friend had died. That day was just too much. Apart from that day, I am convinced that if I miss weeks, then I will just stop blogging.
