Foolproof system for becoming an author:
- Write only on whims. Only when you feel like it. Never when you’re not in the zone.
- Take regular (every 30 seconds) breaks for twitter, texting, yawning, tv, and chocolate.
- Eat popcorn while you work. It’s easy to type with one hand, and that butter on your keyboard is like grease on the cogs of your imagination.
- Tell your critique buddy you’ll have something to them by a certain date and then take an extra 2 weeks. Writers never meet deadlines.
at least that’s what’s worked for me. teehee.
Now for the real meat of this post (double syke):
courtesy of Kari, my sweet, here are 3(3) random things about me. (I might not do this right…)
- 3 things I like to eat: Chipotle veggie bowls with guac, Five Guys’ Cajun fries, Coldstone cake batter ice cream with brownies and cookie dough mix-ins. (Shameful, I know.)
- 3 famous people I wish I was friends with: C.S. Lewis, Brandon Boyd (seriously I made a comic strip all about our adventures we’d have), Nathan Bransford.
- 3 songs that always make me happy: About A Burning Fire by Blindside, Everything is Alright by Motion City Soundtrack, Anna Molly by Incubus, Cute without the E by Taking Back Sunday (I don’t know why bc it’s kinda a sad song), Hey Ya by Outkast. Darn. I failed that one. So many more than 3. I could go on and on. Man, those songs made me feel old. I’m not old yet!!!.
- 3 unusual hobbies I have: Rock stealing collecting, climbing trees and smelling the leaves, hiding behind things and scaring loved ones.
- 3 favorite colors: GREEN, teal, eggplant.
- 3 favorite kinds of shoes: (In order of preference) Flip flops, slippers, cowboy boots.
- 3 people I tag for this: you, you, and you. Just do it. I don’t like to pick favorites. Besides, I don’t think C.S. Lewis, Brandon Boyd and Nathan Bransford would play along.
