I don’t want to forget these random thoughts that have been floating around in my head, so I’ve written them down in the notes section of my iPhone. I’m sharing them with you because I suspect they may be something that you can relate to as well.
If you’re here for the first time, welcome! You’ll be able to find the other parts of this series here.
1- I heard a quote a few months ago that I can’t get out of my head: “Sometimes what didn’t work out for you really worked out for you.”
2- While we’re on the subject of quotes, can we find a another way of saying “Not all heroes wear capes” and “I’m not sure who needs to hear this?”
3- Do we like the sound of the ocean because it reminds us of being in the womb?
4- I do not understand why people get so upset when others put up their holiday decorations early.
5- I will not attend an event if there is a problematic parking situation. (IE- parallel parking) My friend Kristen can back me up on this. See what I did there?
6- As I mentioned briefly in the previous What I Kept post, my attention deficit disorder cannot endure a book’s lengthy forward, introduction, and/or prologue. Isn’t this something that could be discussed within the chapters of the book?
Elizabeth wrote about it here as well.
7-Speaking of books, two weeks ago I received another rejection letter. I haven’t put out a query since the spring. I should also point out that these are from very small publishing houses, not Random House or Penguin (I have no clue if they are the same place). At this point, I’m assuming you won’t publish my book. But who am I to say? I don’t have the patience to sit through a prologue.
8- I despise it when words are deliberately misspelled in order to appear “cute.” Examples include:
and my personal favorite: Kum & Go
9- Who remembers chipped beef on toast? My Dad jokingly referred to it as “shit on a shingle.” I love you, Dad.
10- I have an even bigger blogging challenge than NaBloPoMo. Writing after taking an Ambien.
I can’t keep track of everyone who is taking part in (NaBloPoMo) National Blog Posting Month. So let me know in the comments, and I’ll include a link to your blog at the bottom of this post so that others may check out all of your hard work.
