We made it! Woot, woot! Yes, Friday is finally here! The weekend lays ahead, full of the promise of lovely outdoor activity and yard work! Ahhhh....
And then I realize I've fallen back into my blogger schizophrenic ways this week, with only one post. *gasp*
Which had me thinking this morning about all the writer quirks some people have. You know, the "cool" ones. I always imagine the author with the crazy hair, bathrobe, lack of care about the outside world...kind of like a tamer version of the Shining. Or maybe like Stephen King sleeping with the light on or not owning a cell phone. (Not sure if those are true but the rumors had passed by my ear a time or two.)
And I thought, hmmm...maybe my blogger schizophrenia could be considered a writing quirk? It sounds much, much better than laziness, yes? And in all honesty, it is't laziness at all. I've mentioned before that usually when my writing is going well and the voices in my head are playing along, this posting on the blog suffers. It's a necessary evil. We all know the worst thing is when the voices stop and you're left mid-novel with no clue what to do. Now that's bad. Did we just jinx ourselves? It's ok - spit in your hand, stomp your left foot, turn around three times and we should be good. Done? Perfect.
The fear of the voices stopping always causes me to write as much as I can in the hopes that they won't go away. And I always think about posting something about a blogger break or a hiatus, but I know the moment I do, I will have a great topic and want to post and have to take it all back. So just know that I will be very erratic the next few weeks, but eventually, I will go back to normal. Then again, what fun is normal? Really?
Anyhoo - since the writing bug is still in full swing, I vow once again to post something this Teaser Tuesday! Yippee!
But before I go, let me leave you with one of my other writing quirks I've just discovered: When I'm feeling the muse and the writing is going well, be careful if you ask me a question. My rambling hits an all time high. Some of you have already experienced this. :-)
You will not get a yes or a no but a five paragraph explanation of how I feel followed by a final: I don't know. I see all perspectives and become indecisive. I've decided this too is even worse when I'm writing. It's like I can't turn it off.
SO, what about you?? Any writing quirks? I hope for your sake they are much cooler than mine, I'm afraid it wouldn't be a hard thing to do.
Happy weekends everyone!
