Road to Writing
When I first started, I thought all you had to do is write a book. Can you say *naive*, boys and girls? Join me on my journey as a pre- published writer looking to see my name on the cover of a book. I'll talk about all the bumps, bruises, joys and frustrations I encounter along the way.

Ugh. Headache. Need. Aspirin.

I'm not hungry. I have a headache.

Slight variation on a line I recently told one of my CPs to start using when she was complaining about nearly debilitating hunger at work. But I changed the line to fit my present mood.

Headache.

Pain.

Ugh.

Finishing up the final crit I have due, so I'm feeling pretty good. Other than my headache. Over at RWAOL in the Challenge forum, I set my goal for the week as finishing my three crits (two down, one to go), writing at least two more scenes for SR (haven't even started those yet), and keeping up with the RWAOL character workshop I'm participating in, given by author Sherryl Woods. And if I get another scene written for BMO, I'll consider that a bonus.

No bonus yet, no scenes for SR yet, but I'm close to the happy butt wiggle on the rest, so I'd consider this a good week so far.

Big thanks to Silma for sharing the extra muses who answered her ad with Teresa and me! I can always use an extra muse. Especially a hot one. *g*

Today I got one of those wild hairs. I've got this great digital SLR camera, have used it extensively, and today decided it was time for me to learn to use the self-timer feature. Very cool! Of course, I had to search the house for something my height standing and/or sitting so I'd have something to focus on before setting the timer (settled on a shipping box my husband left sitting in the living room), but it was fun. And I actually got some shots I'm kind of happy with! I'm thinking I may use one of them for my blog. Yeah, I know I've already got a picture at the top of the page, but in the new ones you can actually see my face.

Might not be a good thing, though. You'll have to decide. But first I need to decide on a picture. I think I've got it narrowed down to two, but I'm still not sure. Gonna let this one stew for a couple days.

MOOD: Check the entry title. Says it all.

  • Hugs on the headache! Hope it gets better!

  • Sorry about the headache. Have you tried pinching the fleshy part between your thumb and finger? Sometimes it works for me..or maybe diverts the pain in the head to pain between thumb and finger. LOL

    Glad you can do the timer on the camera. Can't remember how to do mine and do not have the instruction book so got a couple of neat shots of the wall the other day.

  • I can send you a Tylenol with the Muse. BTW, he also gives head and neck massages. *winks winks*

  • Thanks, y'all! That headache did finally go away, thank goodness.

    Sharon - I've never tried that, but I'll give it a shot next time. Thanks for the tip! And FYI--I had to pull my instruction book out. But it sure was fun!

    Silma - I'm always up for a good head and neck massage...especially from a hunky muse! Send him on over, I'm sure he and I can work something out. *g*
