I’m Not a Developer

Three months of customized work down the drain.  That’s what happened to this site early Wednesday morning.

My TickletheSun Child Theme was not set up correctly to begin with, I know now.  I spent hours tinkering with CSS, time that should have only taken minutes.  I’m simply not a developer, though I learned a lot during my experiment.

So, here I am, with a spiffy new theme and writer’s block.  That’s what’s been hiding behind my CSS tinkering; I just haven’t had much to say over the last few months.

That leaves me wondering: why the writer’s block?  I know part of it is because I’m afraid of broaching topics that may be too “out there,” too controversial.  I’ve written about that kind of stuff in the past and it left me feeling raw and exposed.  And maybe that’s what it’s like to be a writer, I don’t know.  But I’m not sure I’m ready for that feeling full-time.

On the homefront:

  • The house is much too quiet without Murphy around.  I keep thinking I see him out of the corner of my eye.  And I know poor Pixie, our other cat, is terribly lonely.
  • I missed a night’s sleep Tuesday night, by tinkering with the theme and thus, finding out it was broken the hard way.  However, I’ve made up for it by sleeping probably 36 of the last 48 hours.  No mania, I promise.

That’s all for now.
