Yes, you there. What are you doing? Weren’t you supposed to be writing? Did you not spend eight hours in a mindlessly repetitious job, thinking of nothing but coming home and fulfilling your life’s true calling? What happened to your plan?
You were going to walk in the door, kick off your shoes, feed your dog, and get down to business. But the second after little Fido’s nose was going hog-wild on a pile of meaty pebbled goodness, a thought popped into your head. Dinner, it said! Of course, little fluffy poopkins was getting his, you needed to get yours. However, actually cooking, with actual, god-forbid, cookware, was simply out of the question. You needed overly processed sustenance and you needed it now! And once you returned from your local fast food window, you were going to break your wrist from typing so fast!
But, you couldn’t be expected to write and eat, could you? You’d watch a little television, turn the brain off, and let yourself relax. Then maybe you’d get online and read a little from the local writing blogs. Then the not so local writing blogs. You just had to browse the latest tips and tricks available for all the worlds aspiring scribes to be. Another interesting way to show and tell? They had you at “Another”! And how do you actually go about getting self published? And some random stranger wants to do book art for you? Well, it would be absolutely insane not to send them a pricing inquiry, with a detailed idea of what you’re requesting, even though you have written give or take one chapter.
