Karate Chop The Block

Yesterday, as I sat staring at the computer screen, once again, trying to come up
with something to post about, Frederick the cat noticed my sad mood and asked what the big problem was. I confessed to him that this blogger block I have been having has hung around way too long and I was at a loss as to how to correct it. "It just won't go away", I said with a big sigh.

"I know how to fix that" he said."and will tell you the secret if you help me out with a problem I have been having".

Well, since I didn't have anything to lose, I agreed and Frederick set to work on the solution.

After a short while, he came out of the garage and put this down and said...."When you have a problem like this, it has a tendency not to ever just go away by itself.  In other words you need to take some kind of action yourself....and, it has been my experience that a good karate chop always does the trick".  

So he gave a, 1, 2, 3....and hollered .. " Karate chop that block"!

As you can see above, I did as he instructed and low and behold, I was able to do this post.  Such a wise cat indeed.

In return, I helped Frederick out with his problem...He requested that the bird feeder be moved to the window box right at his favorite spot...ha!

Thank you all for being so patient with me during my black hole period.  Off I go to do some visiting.  xo

How's the hand? Ouch!
We all suffer writers block.
Probably taking a break is the best cure for it.
But I'm glad you're back now, my friend!
Tell Kitty thank you.

Hahaha! Just keep on telling us about your conversations with Frederick and we'll be happy little campers. :)

Hope the hand is A-OK

P.S. I certainly have blocks and Oreo doesn't tell me a darn thing...Sophie, on the other hand, offers lots of nuzzling and kisses and a fair amount of stupidness for writing material.

I suffer from blogger's block occasionally too. Once you stop it is really hard to get started back up again. Sorry to hear you've been in a sad mood. Hugs!

Oh, I understand very well, as I seem to be there now myself. Perhaps its time to get another cat to keep me in line, huh?

My 15 yr old math minded son has to compete in a scholastic writing contest for an English assignment, and told me he suffers from permanent complete writers block.
All is well here, busy, happy.
Thanks for your thoughts!

Glad your back...its ok to have a block. Sometimes the saying "a change is as good as a rest" hits the spot!

Love that you spoil Frederick!

Paula said...

I had a blogger slump as well - it took me a month to get over it!

Glad to see you back!

Well, it's nice to see you posting again, but I definitely understand the need for a break now and then. Summer is always a sparse posting season for me (though I tried to push through it this year) because I spend most of my time outside. Now that it's fall, I feel super inspired again.
