T.G.I.F. Thank You Goofy Instagram Fail

Standard

Those were the first four words to come to mind when I typed those letters. But really I am grateful it’s Friday. The brain is mushy canned spinach. It has been one long week of trudging through editing, promoting and marketing and I am, shall we say a bit frayed. Frayed just like a piece of that one material…oh I can’t remember exactly what kind of material it is. It completely loses any sense of continuity once it tears. You know the one, since you are all fabric specialists.

Today we are going to discuss refilling the cup, your cup as it were. You can’t write for three weeks staright and never take a break. You know, there probably are people who do. You know there are…because I am one of them. Writer’s, myself included, are usually crazy people and ew often push ourselves to outlandish limits. But any work-a-holic is guilty of this and we all have to refill the cup! I’m thirsty damn it!

This weekend I am going to go see a movie and see if I can just enjoy the show rather than dissecting the writing the entire time: “Oooh that was brilliant…what?? really that’s the best you could come up with??…aw see? Why can’t I come up with twists like that?…Oh how SWEET! Who wrote this again?…Are you kidding me??

Yes, it’s true I do this. No, it is not because I think I am a superior writer. This is the result of me not taking a break when needed. Can’t even enjoy a movie without turning the “writer” off.

If the smacking sensation of this particular wall sounds (or feels) familiar, stand…step away from the computer and go para sailing.

Yes, you must go para sailing. Do you see any other options offered?

 

About Katie Thayne, Author

Katie Thayne (that's me, kind of, seeing as how Katie Thayne is a pen name) is an up and coming author (or so I'd like to think). I have just released my first book, Ms. Impractical Pants, and am currently working on its sequel. I don't have a name for that one yet, so let's just call it Sequel for now. If I'm not working on Sequel, I'm scratching down ideas for the other half dozen or so book ideas swirling around in my brain. Okay, that's a lie, I don't write them down as much as I should, but I still think them, so that should count for something, right? I live in beautiful Moab, Utah and when I'm not writing- on second thought, I won't go there. Let's pretend I sit in a quite office hunched over a keyboard and do nothing but write. The most important thing to know about me, is just because I write doesn't mean I can punctuate. That's why I have an editor- but not for this blogging stuff. Editors ain't cheap and I'm not J.K. Rowling...yet. But I hope that won't keep you from reading my blog.
