Charting the style of daily life...with the mouth of a sailor.

Yesterday was a little bit of a downer for me --- but only because I was in a little bit of a writing funk. But! I have just 3 days left of my 36th year --- and I'm going to make sure these final days will be KICKASS. Trying to pull myself up by my bootstraps:

* I'm treating myself to a clean mani/pedi (taking my own tools and polishes to a nail salon that now lines their jetted tubs with a fitted...shower cap of sorts). I'm not going for a tasteful, ladylike mani look - I'm going for fun and slightly tacky. #yolo

* I'm on a cleaning rampage for house, handbag and car. I'm selling and donating a bunch of ish AND I'm getting down and dirty to get every corner of Chez Fox sparkling clean! I'm hoping this will help clear up my mental block.

* I'm celebrating writing I've already accomplished by basking in the glow of my latest feature article for Fort Wayne Monthly magazine -- now online -- which highlights the amazing style brands that were founded and are still headquartered here in my hometown. Gotta respect the hustle. 

Writer's block is still hanging over my head (the struggle is real, my friends) but honestly, it feels kind of good to just go stream of consciousness like this... 

Keep it funky.

I just don't feel like blogging today. I have a massive head cold (that feels like it's finally breaking up), I just sat through 35 minutes of tornado warnings and alarms (one of my worst nightmares) and as I stare at my computer screen, my eyes keep wandering to the Cheerio dust on my floors. I can't concentrate.

I had a fantastic weekend with my family and a great group of friends (thank you to all responsible) but I'm currently battling writer's block. Sure, I have multiple projects I could work on but my brain is just...lame. 

I Googled "how to battle writer's block" and found a few articles/suggestions:

* Take a break. Okay, I'll watch some Southern Charm.

* Write in a new place. But I haven't showered today.

* Write about something else. That's what I'm doing right now.

* Get Moving. Well, I was going to go for a bike ride but the tornado action put the kibosh on that.

* Use Mind Mapping. Hmm, this sounds interesting. This might finally give a purpose to my hoard of cute notebooks. I'll get right on this...after an ep of Southern Charm.
