Hi Everyone! Time to spew out our writerly fears and/or let loose our accomplishments for the month. A big hurrah to our host, Ninja Captain Alex Cavanaugh, and his wily co-hosts for this month: C. Lee McKenzie, Rachel Pattison, Elizabeth Seckman, Stephanie Faris, Lori L MacLaughlin, and Elsie Amata.
This month's question: How do you find the time to write in your busy day?
Answer: It's the most wonderful time of the year...
Do you know what I'm talking about? Not tinsel and presents, but school! Glorious school! Six hours of silence. If I had more energy, I start a kick line. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, today is the first day of school in these parts of the woods and I am finally free of "Mo-om, I'm bored," "Mo-om, when are you going to stop typing?", "Mo-om, I need something to eat," "Mo-om", "Mo-om", "MOOOO-OOOM!" (Can you guess what my least favorite word is?)
This summer was a total bust when it came to writing anything but blogs. Now that the kiddies are at school, I can get back to writing fiction. But I won't actually get to do that this week. My parents are coming in on Friday for their yearly visit, so for the next two days, it will be clean, clean, clean.
Since I'll be focussing on their visit, no Celebrate the Small Things this Friday. I'll tell you all about the cool things we hope to do next week.
I totally missed the Michael G. D'Agostino's Question of the Month on Monday: What kind of music best speaks to you?
For me, that would be classic rock including Led Zepplin (When the Levee Breaks, Ramble On), The Doors (Riders on the Storm, L.A. Woman), The Rolling Stones (Miss You, Gimme Shelter). I also love a few more recent rock/alternative bands such as Red Hot Chili Peppers (By the Way, Otherside), Stone Temple Pilots (Sour Girl, Big Bang Baby), Pearl Jam's I Got Id, The White Stripes Seven Nation Army, and I Will Possess Your Heart by Death Cab for Cutie. Every once in a while a piece of pop music will grab me like Tove Lo's Habits (Stay High).
Okay, I've got a ton of people to visit and comments to return. Can't promise to get to everyone this week, but I am working on it. I've also got a guest blog coming out next week on things you would never guess that contain petroleum at T. Drecker's Kidbits (which I need to write today).
Gotta move, move, move. How's your life going? Full speed or nice and easy?
