On Writing

Ru has joined the NaNoWriMo project, the goal of which is to write like mad and crank out an entire novel during the month of November. Part of me is jealous because I simply don't have that kind of ambition.

The other part of me sees her sitting at her laptop typing "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." over and over. Inconveniently, I don't have a big maze-shaped garden in my backyard to hide from her when she comes after me with an axe. Let's hope it doesn't come down to that.

umm, thanks for putting that scary face inside my head. Now as I'm feverishly typing 2,000 words each night, I'll be thinking of Jack Nicholson. Great! Just great. :)

ryc: Ummm, kind of. I think that's why I dislike that paragraph; it seems too autobiographical.

Just give her a tennis ball to bounce off of the walls.

And if you beat her down with a bat and drag her into the walk in cooler? Use a pad lock or else a pesky ghost will just let her out while you're not looking.
