Inspiration:

From today's WritersDaily:

Getting the first draft finished is like pushing a peanut with your nose across a very dirty floor.

--Joyce Carol Oates

And my third-read editorial letter from Hammered is here. If I'm quiet today, that's why; I have a production draft to get in order.

It's light, thank goodness. But I'd love to get this put to bed.

Teresa Nielsen Hayden cracked me up again.

So that's what it's like, eh? Because from what I've heard, JCO's first drafts are actually the result of her being weighted into her chair all day by a 16-pound cat.

Re:

A cat named Peanut, perchance?

Re:

Hee! I used to know a cat named Peanut who was very, very fat. So it's possible!

Re:

Well given that Oates tends towards the "Write what you know" school of writing, she could very well be speaking from that kind of experience ;)
LOL! Sandra told me she was going to do that. I'm glad it got such a great reception!
