I am having a pretty stupid day today. Can't seem to find the right words to put in myLot responses. This happens every once in awhile. I start to respond, erase it, try again and then finally don't care what I type..lol Do you have days when no matter what you type it doesn't look right or you feel it's worded wrong?

yes, sometimes i find that i end up doing that, but i usually proofread over what i want to say and since i am a writer anyways, i am usually pretty confident in what i want to say.

I am fairly confident in what I want to say but when the thought process isn't there, it isn't there. I wonder sometimes if it has to do with diet or lack of sleep. I have to have some excuse...lol Thanks for responding.

definitely lack of sleep - i sleep ok, but not into a deep, sound nor restrative type of sleep and i know this is the cause of some of my errors...

hahaha Yes, this does happen to me too, every day. I try to think of what to say and start and I read it over and it sounds horrible so I start over or else I get started and and go on and on forever and feel that I am babbling sort of like now.

I fell asleep earlier for about an hour. Was up early this morning and worked away from home. Decided to respond to a few discussions after my nap but can't find the right words. This is so annoying. This response is also so annoying. Thanks for responding to this lame discussion...lol

Thanks a bunch for the best response. Also, the discussion was not lame, I have not seen any discussions come from you that are lame. Have a great day.

lol I've had those days and I just end up giving up and doing something mindless instead. This mostly occurs when I'm overtired but can't sleep.

I can certainly relate. I take a break when my mind is blank. Then I have other days where I want to post a discussion and just can't think of anything worthwhile to post. Thanks for responding.

Yep, I call them brain farts also. Wasn't sure if I titled the discussion that way if myLot would let it go through. Thanks for responding.

For me it is a little different. I usually look at the discussion in my inbox, sit there and stare at it for a while trying to think of what to write, mark it is unread and save it for later. I like to have a general idea of what I am going to write before I go to the discussion.

I sort of have a similar experience. Usually I am going along rather well for the day, then I get to a topic and I know EXACTLY what I am going to say. At some point within the five or ten seconds it takes to get to this response screen, I forget what I wanted to say, and anything else that I can think of just does not sound as good. So, I get upset with myself and leave the topic, and go search for something else to try and regain my composure, but end up having the same problem elsewhere, so I just mope around for an hour or so.

Most of the time I can think of a response right away but just couldn't do it yesterday. Thanks for responding.

yes i do experience those times, too. especially when i just got home from work & i am so stressed out. i guess your brain being tired is responsible for it.

I agree. Working all day, thinking and stress can cause a snag. Thanks for responding.

If I'm really blank, I'll walk away from the computer and hope it helps. If it didn't help, I do a craft project and wait awhile before I come back to myLot. Thanks for responding.

It's that stupid Mercury-In- Retrograde, I'm telling ya... It takes twice as long to do anything, and includes messing up! I've been making typos, and errors all week... Murphy's Law can't stop me from laughing at it all, though! :) I recommend you do the same, and you'll be good to go in no time! :) (But go slowly....) :) http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1549203.aspx Have some laffs! :)

Funny discussion you wrote the other day. Oh yeah, I do know there is a Friday the 13th this month. Wonder if Freddie will be hanging around to haunt me. Thanks for responding.
