Behinder and Behinder


Tuesday was a behind and behinder day. About 2 a.m. this morning I found myself drowsing over my computer in a strange, head-wavering, sleepy state. My mind was half-dreaming, and when I would rouse myself I had to carefully go over what I’d just written. Mostly I discovered rambling, unpunctuated sentences that had no meaning. And that was just my blog at the Kill Zone today.

I think I rescued it fairly well. Pop on over and read about how writers have to kill their darlings. There are some very fun responses.

Now back to our regular programming, in more ways than one.

Last night I completed my son’s homeschool high school transcript–a thing I’d been dreading for 3.5 years. And it’s a thing of beauty. Ready to get that boy off to college next fall!

Now, I’m ready for a nap.

Happy Wednesday!

    I hope you got in a good nap.:-) The Kill Zone post was excellent with PJ Parrish submitting (I think) the most “darling” example!

      Napped for…10 minutes, lol. It was enough to keep going. And, yes! PJ Parrish’s (Kris Montee) comment was hysterical. So glad she mentioned it. It’s the kind of thing that slips in during a first draft, and one gets used to seeing it, and so sometimes slips through. What a great example.

    How lovely about your son’s homeschooled high school transcript, Laura; I hope you are getting plenty of sleep ( not just napping).

    KillZone is amazing; I just got this blog this morning; I adore Hardy, Virginia Woolf, Lawrence, et al.
