I've had a rather hectic week - how about you? I think therefore that the challenge needs to be......oh wait a minute...there's dust under this desk.....euhhh! Just wait a second and I'll clean it up because I just can't think when there's dust under the desk. Hold it right here. I'll be back.
What was I saying? Oh yes, this week has been a fairly quiet one for me and so I was thinking that the challenge should be....hold it....it's the phone - just let me get it and I'll get back to you. Hold it just a tic.
a little later...
So it's Friday and you all have worked hard to get here, especially Talli, so we should have something rewarding or easy or something - right?
THE FRIDAY CHALLENGE
You guys really think I know what I'm going to write when I sit down to do this dontcha? Well, I don't. I never have the remotest clue. I absolutely don't. I read all the articles in this month's Writers' Digest about the vital importance of outlining and it is like they are telling me that I should dip my grandchildren in beet juice so they turn all nice and pink. It is just like that. I do not know what I'm going to write in the next sentence let alone the last chapter of a novel. Gawwwd! And I don't know what challenge is going to fall out of my mind either. I just don't. Some days I'd like to be the highly organized Queen of blogging challenges and have this and that all bloody figured out but I think by now, at almost 59, I know that I do not function like that.
I think I told some of you that a few months ago I looked in the mirror, like I do every morning, and said to myself "I should start moisturizing." like I do every morning. Then I laughed because I'm NOT GOING TO. I do floss though - but that is because if you don't and then you go to the dental hygenist after years of not having a cleaning - it really really hurts - so now I floss. If I thought my wrinkly dried up face would hurt from being ignored I would moisturize. Daily.
Now, I'm just killing myself laughing at that thought. I am sitting here crying with laughter at my own damn wittiness. Now, could I do that if I KNEW what I was going to write? No is the answer, in case you are slow today or something. I most certainly wouldn't write if I knew what was going to happen next. Boring beyond belief (nice alliteration that).
