OK, so I’m not doing the above this time around, but I’m still on vacation :) Totally free to run around nekkid if I want to. All day long. Every day.
Of course, it would be nice if the weather would cooperate with that plan because I’m bundled in a blanket and several layers of clothes right now. And it snowed yesterday and it’s supposed to snow again tomorrow.
Anyway, posts might be lighter this week because I’m going to concentrate on two things:
I’m way more excited about one than the other, lemme tell you.
Writing is fun.
You get to make stuff up and put people in crazy situations, make ‘em fall in love, have them do it standing up in a hammock, shoot at them or drop aliens on them…
Editing is work.
Nobody can have sex standing up in a damn hammock. OMG, what were you thinking? The bad guy is a mutant squid so doesn’t have fingers; how’s he shooting that gun?
Not that either of those things happened in my story, but there’s still stuff that I’m like how did I not see that before? I think writing makes you feel like a shiny new smartphone, and Editing’s like “Dude, you’re just a flip-phone. Try again.”
So then I’ll go paint and be all, “See, phthalo blue loves me. Suck it, Editing.”
But eventually I’ll be unable to paint one more happy little tree because I’ll realize, “OMG, Editing’s totally right! I’ve got to fix that!” And me and my laptop will spend some more quality time together tapping at the keyboard and frustrating spell-check. (I turned on auto-correct once and totally broke the English language, so it’s just me and spell-check now.)
Where was I even going here… Oh! So there might not be much happening on the blog this week unless Alec or Jazz steps up with something. Actually, Alec’s been mumbling about adding his old blog posts into the timeline of posts, so I’ll remind him about that. But if you see me on Facebook or Twitter losing my mind, just pat me on the head and tell me everything will be OK :)
