So after finishing my NaNoWriMo project, which I am sure with enough digging, editing, and re-writing one would discover a decent story and not just a bunch of junior-high girls grown up stuff, I took a day (I’m a fast reader) to gobble up Stephanie Meyer’s The Host and became inspired to start a second story.
A real story, with a hero and an antagonist, a plot, a climax, an awesome sex scene (which I later had to … erm, calm down), and an ending. I spent the first 14 days of December writing. And then Christmas came and I got fat off of Ammonia cookies.
But after getting sick (and losing 5 pounds of ammonia cookies) I jumped back on the writing bandwagon, determined to have my story finished by June. I’ve been doing so much writing that I’ve developed pain in my wrist.
Thank goodness for the Internet — who knew there were exercises for your wrists?!? http://www.safecomputingtips.com/carpal-tunnel-exercise.html
Ok back to work!
So I’m at McDonald’s killjng two birds (park and dinner) with one stone when this shitty little girl come up to me and asks if Mylo is a girl. Ok. Mylo is wearing a blue shirt with a blue flannel and khaki pants. He’s sporting a tight mini-fro not some long I-can’t-bear-to-cut-it flowing tresses. Oh. And he’s wearing pink crocs.
So that must mean he is a girl.
I had to bite my tongue not to answer the seven-year-old with a smart assed “Does he look like a girl?” or “Are you retarded?” remark.
Five minutes later she’s complaining to me about Jaxon wanting to play with her. At least her mother rescued me from that nightmare.
I don’t think shitty ass smart mouth kids should get a pass just because they’re kids. It usually leads to shitty ass adults.
I did it. I didn’t think I was going to finish this but I did. Thanks to everyone for their support and peer pressure, and especially to NaNoWriMo for letting me know that it’s okay to sacrifice a clean kitchen for writing!!!!
