NanoPoblano Day 4 – Day of Failure


Blogger’s guilt. This should be a thing. A recognized condition to describe how we writers in blogland feel when we want to write something but we just can’t.

Take, for instance, the matter of theme. This can range from the entire basis for which our sites exist, or it can be as small as something we decided in a fit of inspiration that our Nano Poblano challenge would revolve around. Yes, you guessed it. Today I fail. There will be no Japanese lesson today. I simply haven’t the heart, the brain, nor various other body parts for it. It’s been a rough day, full of doctor’s appointments at which I folded in the face of a red-eyed frightened child who didn’t want to get his flu shot, and a car parked in a parking lot miles from home, causing me to have to walk with the aforementioned child.

But tomorrow will be better! Perhaps we’ll talk about the joys of ordering coffee, not only in Japan but worldwide! Or maybe I’ll expound on the treat that is saying “I’m sorry.” Stay tuned! It’ll be fun! As everything should be when your life is in progress. Right?

  1. Life gets in the way. It’s not failure, it’s being human. 🙂


  2. Doesn’t sound like failure to me. It sounds like life, and taking care of priorities. What a challenging day! But you got through it, and even managed to blog. Sounds like success. We got to take care of ourselves!


  3. Not failure…delayed expectations 🙂

  4. Hope you put your feet up with a glass of wine! In your shoes, I’m not sure that I would have actually got to sit in front of my PC, let alone post. Good on you. Today will be better. And BTW, I’m getting my inspiration back…. 🙂

  9. Failure? Nah, you were able to write this post! After your day that was quite the accomplishment!

    I can’t wait to hear about coffee ordering (very important!)

  10. I do hope tomorrow is better for you 🙂 Rest well.


  11. It’s ok to miss a day here and there, as you well know.

    This was almost the first week since I started blogging that I wasn’t going to have a Thursday post, because I simply couldn’t think of anything to write – but then, thank the Good Lord, I received an email with a guest post. I never put up a post so fast in all of my blogging life. Hurray for guest posters!
