This says a lot about your life-stage when you are REALLY excited to get down on a Friday night by putting up a couple a’ loads of laundry and pounding out a couple thousand words at the keyboard. Seriously, is this a country for old women or what?
But before I do this I must warm up on Can I Take a Nap First?, because I have been a “post delinquent” this week. The hard truth is that I’ve just been lazy. Not so lazy that I’d miss fun dinners with good and dear friends, but way too lazy to get up an hour earlier or stay up an hour later (or give up watching The Daily Show. SHAMELESS PLUG: The Daily Show is THE best written news show ever…. really, they say it’s comedy, but it is The Fool who speaks the truth).
And I started A Visit From The Goon Squad @ a week ago and I find myself saying, “Just one more chapter.” I also find myself saying, “DAMMIT! Why can’t I write like that?” Then I remember that to compose good prose you have to actually write some words and then go back and edit them ruthlessly. Which just brings me back to the original guilt for NOT working on my NaNoWriMo WIP. But in the words of my home-improving, uber-optimistic Guitar Man, “I think we might have turned the corner.” With that inspiration, I’m fired up to get back on track and get my remaining 43,716 words out.
So thank you, my dozen corneas of followers, for being my writing exercise warm-up this evening, and have a great weekend.
