Meme Monday 9 – Mood

Gurney Halleck on Mood

I guess this one is kind of a slap in my own face, but I’ve been having trouble finding the mood or the time for writing. So here’s a little Dune for fun… I still love casting Patrick Stewart as what was supposed to be the ugliest man alive…

I think I will probably be a bit yet before I get more writing posts up. My thought is to get myself a bit of a backlog, write a few without needing to post them, and then get them posted. I tried diving in facefirst, and that hasn’t paid off. Now for some caution.

In the mean time, I have re-done my pages on My Writing Projects and My Blogging Projects – representative now of my new projects, and to go along with my new Features page. So I’ll just work on keeping all of that content flowing!

Meme Monday 8 – Guidelines

Guidelines

Another week, another feeling that I can’t get some fiction together and up on the blog. I may have bitten off more than I could chew! I had hoped I was building up to this, but maybe I wasn’t ready, maybe I need to reorganize and prioritize differently. Probably.

We posted on Comparative Geeks as well that we’re going to try to post a little less there – I’m hoping I can translate that into some more fiction blogging here, and keep up my weekly submissions over on Sourcerer as well. That’s a lot of writing still, and I don’t think cutting one post over on Comparative Geeks will hurt – instead, I hope it will help.

As to the meme, I always felt like the whole “more like guidelines” thing should be one… when I started looking it up a while back, I found it WAS a “standard” meme, and this is the standard picture for it. So there you go!

Meme Monday 7 – the Post is a Lie

The Post is a Lie

At some point when doing Features, you have to figure out when you just need to call it. I didn’t plan far enough in advance to do a writing post today, and so, I don’t want to force it. Sure, I could probably write something real fast, but I was working on my post for Comparative Geeks for today, and I’m setting up a series on Sourcerer (going to be comics next!) which will be a couple of posts, and more from there.

Maybe Monday is a bad time for me to be doing an extra post. Maybe it’ll be easier when I’m not working Saturdays for six-days a week. Maybe it’ll never be easy and I just need to keep at it. Maybe I should have had a backlog of posts before I started into this plan. I don’t know.

But for now, I hope you enjoy the meme!

What to do about Mondays?

I ran this poll in a post recently, but I thought I would highlight it and see if I could get more responses. Please vote if you are interested!

I think that Meme Monday is not going very far. It does not get many views, or likes, or comments. The memes, once shared on Tumblr, tend not to go very far (though a few have gotten a few likes and reblogs). Overall, it’s work for not much result. And I have succeeded at the initial test with my Features: I have worked them into my weekly flow, I have increased the number of posts on the site, and people are reading/viewing/interacting with the posts.

Well, especially the Wednesday post, anyway.

So I am thinking a new Feature for Monday, thus the poll! Let me know what you would like to see from the blog, here, and I’ll see what I can’t do to deliver!

Meme Monday 6 – Heavy in Your Arms

Doctor Who - Florence & the Machine

Recently on my post on Florence & the Machine, there were some Doctor Who connections in the form of a meme… and in the comments, I got the idea for another one. Everyone really liked the song “Heavy in your arms” in the comments, so… enjoy!

Meme Monday 5 – Thor

Thor is a Disney Princess.

This idea is from a commenter over on Comparative Geeks! You can see the original post and comments here.
