ribbon salad Hey, remember when I said I was going to blog more?

I meant COOK MORE.

I meant COOK MORE and also WRITE THE HELL OUT OF MY NOVEL.

I have been getting up at 4 am, 6 days a week, and writing for 8 – 10 hours, and then I can’t look at screens anymore. I read books on paper. I make out with my cat. I go to Ren Fairs. Most of all I COOK THINGS because I decided I like to cook things. (Lie) (I hate to cook things) (I deeply like to EAT THINGS, though, so I am learning to cook all the things I like at restaurants)

AND THEN I WRITE. Because THE NOVEL? It is GOING. It is going like a fast and naughty pony. And when that pony goes, you have to ride it, Oh my Best Beloveds, And kick it and holler and spur it on and extend bad metaphors in blog posts beyond all neighing reason. BECAUSE. I know from long experience that any second this pony will stop dead and I will be hurled over his head to smash face first into the loamy earth, and I shall bite the earth, weep, froth, kick, and declare that I do not remember how to write a novel. It will be a bad few weeks of terrible mental illness and frustration.

But NOW right now THIS NOW HAPPENING NOW, oh my best beloveds? THE PONY IS GO.

Here is the only screen related thing I am doing when not writing:

Posting things to my pinterest board about cooking, called ATE IT WITH MY MOUTH.

Posting things to my pinterest board about the novel, called NOBODY’S NOTHING.

    Yay! As long as you were writing for us, all is well! (It is all about us, right?)

  • Kacie

    Phew! I was hoping you were in “book” and not “bad things are happening in life, please send prayers or a posse to beat up the meanies” mode. Glad to hear life is good and the pony is go.

  • Jill

    Gooooooooo, pony!!

  • Amy-Go

    You know what I got from this? You went to a Ren Fair. WITHOUT ME.

  • HEY!LOOKIT! So glad to see you waving your wooden spoon and red gingham apron from the back of the pony as you write and cook! This book has grabbed you and taken off. Girlfriend does NOT take no for an answer! This is seriously my favorite title ever. . .ever.

    I just knew it was book-writing mode! Though from the Pinterest board, i’m guessing you didn’t select MY song suggestion. *sniffle*

    Isn’t it wonderful that Pinterest invented that thing called cooking?! I love it forever and ever.

  • I’m so glad the writing is a go pony. I’ve missed you around here but so happy you’re cooking/ren fairing/writing/cat making outing.
