YES! Another themed day.
Alright, I'm trying to get find my lost writing groove, so I'm reserving Wednesdays for writing and book chatter. Hopefully it will help get me busy.
Has anyone noticed that I've been doing a lot of crafts lately? A lot of crafts.
Anyone know what I've actually been doing as I've been wielding my glue gun and cans of spray paint? And please no smart alec responses like "Making stuff!" Anyone know? Hmmmmm? Anyone at all? Yes, you there in the back...
Someone who looks very familiar says, "Obviously you are displaying classic avoidance behavior."
Ok. I recognize you. It's my subconscious. Thought I wouldn't know you, eh? Well, no sense trying to sound all smart. Just spit it out.
"Fine! You're finding things to keep you busy so you don't have to think about writing your novel because you're struggling with the middle and it's really really hard!!"
Yep. That's it.
Last night I met with my awesome critique group, The Pub Club. And I was instructed to "Put the spray paint down."
Well, I can't promise to completely give up the spray paint or the crafting. Come on! It's so fun. (And there's isn't a middle part that stumps me!)
But I am going to try to get back to my novel. I've ignored it for too long.
I asked one of the girls at the restuarant to take our picture, but sadly it ended up all blurry (I turned off the flash...I hate the flash, but it was too dark and I didn't notice). So, I'll have to settle for sharing a picture of what I order when we meet at The Pastry Pub, the Oriental Salad...
