A few words on writing

Hey there, awesome readers!

Caution: Blatant self-promoting up ahead. (Because warning you makes me feel less … “self-promoty”.)

If you follow me on Facebook and Twitter, you may be aware that I’m writing a book. This is because I love writing so much that I write about it all the time. Also, writing about writing is one of the best ways to shamelessly avoid writing. And if you’re wondering what it would be like to make a living as a writer, let me paint you a word picture:

Procrastination

That said, I’ve been working on two books and have recently decided to focus on just one because the characters kept confusing each other. Kind of like if Mrs. Peacock, who was in the middle of killing Mr. Green in the conservatory with a candlestick, suddenly found herself teaching a math class to vampires in the south of France in 1972.

And you KNOW what Mrs. Peacock would be thinking, right?

Hey wait a minute!!! Where’s that candlestick? OMG this moonlighting-in-two-books shit is going to get me caught red handed!

Oh wait! I’m not even in that story anymore. Never mind.

I digress.

Also, if anyone is looking for me I’ll be working on my book this afternoon. Right after I water the plants.

Eating Beets

What PANIC looks like first thing in the morning. After a heavy night of beet eating.

Hey there, awesome readers! I’m about to share a hermetic secret with you. “Hermetic”, because apparently this is only known to a select few. “Secret”, because apparently no one else has stepped up to tell you about it. Well have a seat, awesome readers, because guess what! I’m about to step up. You’re welcome. Recently […]

Knee Pain

I smell like an old person. Why do I feel like I should be apologizing for that?

Happy Friday Eve, awesome readers! To put this post into context, here’s a conversation between Greg and I (uncensored because what fun would that be?) … Me: I think I have kneecap cancer. Greg: Yup. Me: What do you mean “yup”. This could be SERIOUS. Greg: Just like your eyeball cancer, lip cancer, and pinkie […]

Voices in your head before and after kids

The voices in your head: before and after kids

Happy Day to you, awesome readers! There’s no denying that after kids, the body deviates only to cross over into slightly altered versions of itself. The waist gets thicker, hair gets thinner and the metabolism seems to slow down to the likes of a hibernating bear. This is also known as “eat-that-cookie-and-you-may-never-get-naked-with-the-lights-on-again.” But having kids […]

What I imagine Siri looks like.

What I imagine Siri looks like

Hey there, awesome readers! Some of you are too young to remember this but once upon a very long time ago an entire population of people only ever wrote things down on paper. Grocery lists, phone numbers and random thoughts … to record any of these a pen and a piece of paper were required. […]
