It's one of those blog posts about not having anything to blog about. Yes, CHRISTMAS HAS COME EARLY.
What's a writer to write about when she isn't writing or even editing? Some writers like to write about other people writing, and I've read a lot of cool quotes and thought provoking paragraphs in those blog posts. Maybe I could write one of those. Except fuck that. This website is about me! ME! ME! ME!
Er, so, I'm not writing or editing. But maybe I can spin some cotton candy out of my ass about what I'm not writing or editing. Why not?
I'm not writing book #4 anymore because I already wrote it. But! People are reading it! My partner read it already, and she really liked it, but I pay her for that opinion, so you shouldn't put too much stock in it. How do I pay her? Mostly by not curling up in the fetal position on the floor and crying for three days straight. It's amazing what a person will say to you if you threaten to do that and mean it.
Other people are reading it too, now, people who don't live with me, so my sobbing onto the living room floor doesn't scare them too much. As far as I know, these other people are still in the first 25% of the book, but they like it so far.
Now for the book I'm not editing. Yeah, still haven't gotten those "comments from my editor that I should expect in early February." I could be stressed out about this, but I've decided that the reason she hasn't sent me any comments is because she dares not comment on perfection. (Yes, I've been nursing this delusion for a long time.)
So what's not going on with you?
